Hi enter,

Congrats on your completion of a BIG project.

I am relieved to have (carefully) completed two mono rev c boards, so I can appreciate the work involved in building a 5.1 amp. From all reports, Mauro's rev c amps will make the effort worthwhile. You probably now have the best 5.1 amp in town.

You will need to leave the cover off when playing, for ventilation. Some vent holes in the sides would help also. If you did this you could vent the cover and then be able to leave it on.

I guess you went for the spring clip speaker terminals for economy and convenience.

Regards,

Audie.

Thanks a lot for your kind words and your advise as well.

About the chassis i had this in mind to open some holes on top and sides of it so the heat goes out from ther but i havent tested it yet with all chanels working hard to tell you for shure.With the 2 front chanels playing in full mode there is no problem.

I dont think useing something else for the speaker terminals will make a audible difference so way spenting more money

Agreed. You are the best person to make that call.

Many people consider spring clip speaker terminals do not make a good connection with the speaker wire. They are fiddly to use and usually only accept up to 14 gauge bare wire, so terminated audiophile cables cannot be used.

Some also believe that good connections are necessary to preserve signal integrity. The thought is that good connections will not degrade the signal, wheras poor connections will degrade the signal, which in a system with good resolution, will be audible.

In a typical PC based system it may be that the resolution may be insufficint to reveal audible differences between connectors.

It's all very subjective. Different people will have different experiences of the effect of connections, as they will of other components.

Regards,

Audie.

Hi enter,

You might have to wait for warmer weather to access your amplifier ventilation requirement.

I see that the temperature in Athens is 5C today!

Audie.

I am in your camp. My goal is to eventually eliminate those things which I did not have a hand in creating from my collection.
