ACD,

My personal opinion... The best thing to do at this point is to build what you think is good. Any minor "improvements" at this stage are entirely subjective... Plenty of arguments for skinny or fat, etc... Maximum happiness will result from more building and less squabbling.

The board looks excellent as you have presented it and it will meet the requirements of 90% of all DIY builders. Everyone has personal motivations for one particular item or another, but at the end of the day, all we need is a place to mount a bank of caps and 4 diodes... the rest is details.

Just my two cents as a novice constructor. (I know I'm missing a few points)

I have had my "thinking hat" on the last days, and think that if the "playground for CRC" is removed from the layout (but still with possibillity for connecting such to the PCB), I think it could be shortend down to 30 cm. in lenght........

Jan,
I believe the CRC/CLC area is a very useful part of this design. I really think it makes it more useful than some of the other designs around here.
What about making the cap section "stackable" with standoffs or something?

Hi, I am sure he means to have supply board on top of the amp board...which means they need to have same size and mounting holes in the same place

Question Idea?!?

Jan,
I was just thinking that maybe the PSU board could be split in half so it could be stacked on each other with standoffs. That way we could still have all of the features you included, while taking up less space.
Do you think something like that is doable?
I saw another user on here do something like that with his power supply and output board.
Just trying to come up with a creative solution so that it will work out.
Thanks,
Donovan

Ahh, ok, modular supply

Well, it makes sense, in some way

In that case, may I suggest to make the supply board "breakable"...then there would be 3 options

1. full supply

2. "half" supply

3. Stacking

That really makes the boards much more manageable in my opinion. Although I don't see what the "path" would be. It seems like it would make a couple of trips back and forth between the halfs.
Maybe I just need to see it again in the morning.
Thanks,
Donovan
