Just wanted to add some drama and suspense, ha
(Add some music from "Twilight Zone")

There is an article titled " Burning Amps, rattlin rafters" and it is report from BAF 09. In a British magazine that I just randomly picked from the shelf? The same month - February, just like Stereophile?

So I am ether psychic or BAF is so big that everyone writes about it?

I believe it took me around 6 months of work, but I was working on and off any time I had free time. I did brushed finish and powder coating as well which worked well, but anodizing would look better for the front panel.
Regarding next project I have several planned. Learning how to do transformer winding. I have really nice vacuum tube preamp that I am planning to modify - to loose output caps and use output transformers instead. I hate caps and I love transformers. Next I am waiting for F3 F4 and F5 boards, so I could experiment and see how they are sounding. Than I am planning to make new cases for my 6 channel balanced volume control... Than I would like to learn more on digital side - DACs... I do not know way too many things are going on.

" ... article titled " Burning Amps, rattlin rafters" ..."

No Googler yet ... maybe later this month.
===

" ... some music from "Twilight Zone" ..." = http://www.amazon.com/At-Rockpalast-...dp/B0007TX8SU/ ? ... or ... http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Truth-Re...dp/B0002N7I32/ ... Both with 24 bit/48k or better sound tracks ... but PAL Zone 2 format requires a tweaked "universal" player like http://oppodigital.com/ ... ... The original EmptyV video is hard to find ...

(The Twilight Zone / Golden Earring CD is only 16 bit/44k = )
===

" ... annual mega party of the industrial design faculty overhere, cute chickidies too ..." = Got links?

That heatsink info from AR2 could be a godsend!
And yes he does have all that equipment! He helped me with my cwaaazy F4 towers.

Clearly I'm not as ambitious in my projects so I need to scrounge a bit: the silver transformer cover is an Ikea pan, and the Stainless steel cover plates on the sides are rearview mirror parts!

A really generous guy! Now that we are famous we need to get on with planning 2009- I somehow doubt the article was about BAF 2009, prob 2008..

Mark

The emails I sent to the site for heatsink quotes get returned as undeliverable. Has anyone else had any success?
