"My goodness, Grandma , what a big heatsink you have!"


Looks nice - good work. I think you'll lenjoy it. The AMP6 is still one of my favs. What are you using for a power supply?

Why such a big heatsink? I'm new to this and thought the tripaths were quite cool. Some I've seen don't have a heatsink.

That much of an improvement? Cool. I have had this little amp for about 2 years and really enjoy it. I too have a fairly large heat sink added to the chip, just because (I'm a little paranoid & anal).

I should actually get to putting the thing into some kind of enclosure though, and add a second input, and add a potentiometer...
