Hi Leikis,

I planning to build a class AB amp. A quick question on your build configuration.

Why 36pcs of 2,200 uF cap & not 6pcs of 13,200 uF ?
Does the sound quality improve when using more of smaller cap instead of lesser bigger cap ?

Thanks in advance.

The use of several smal caps gives the psu extremly low inductance and it wil filter the power well. So ti wil be an very fast power supply. Very usefull when drivin low impedance speakers as my old Infinity speakers.

I have RS1 for the main stereo, for the the surround i have RS4000,RS3000, Kappa senter, in the living room Kappa 7.

As you mabye noticed Holton has the Psu Two with the same type of supply with many smal caps.

Looking forward to your comments Leikis. I think it will show pros and cons. Better image but less dynamic. Just guessing though.

I'm really excited waiting for your impressions regarding the sonic differences between these amps!

The 500L boards in place in the amp, i painted the face plate in black gloss at the same time :-)
The boards came with pre adjusted bias at 43 mA for eatch transisstor.

Deskribe sound in english is not my strong side, ore writing at all !!!!

But right from a cold amplifier at first start ut, i hear the sound i AWESOME.
More open, sharp and clear, this is a run and buy produckt people. It fits my Infinity RS1 very good, the only play down to ca 150Hz, my mono Holton with 800 boards takes care of the bass system with 6 x 12" dipol for eatch side.
Even the midrange sounds more tigh and precise.
The goose bump factor is back :-)

Dont sitt on the fence, order now :-)
