If by transparent aluminium you mean aluminium oxide, the answer is no, it is not conductive. It is in fact excellent insulator, and very hard to boot ! Not as hard as diamond, but harder than most metals. It has been used (in form of a sapphire) as bearing material in mechanical clocks. And can be colored to pretty much any color you like - again it won't be as nice looking as diamond, but close ... And much cheaper too !

Dark blue heatsinks sound best with "Kind of Blue" ... I can only assume Peter had in mind AC-DC "Hells bells" with bronze

Actually Bratislov,

I was just being a goof, but there are 3-4 aluminum family materials being worked on... give it a google some interesting reading.

Let's keep some perspective; we're talking about a couple pounds of bronze.

Well, I don't see Peter's work as random, maybe you do ... in any case he has no reason not to be proud of his hard work and creativity, even if he follows paths that you wouldn't.

Rather than discourage Peter from his path (and others from following) why don't you set examples that you feel are less discouraging? Just telling us what not to do is not enough. Design AND BUILD something that shows everyone how you think it should be done. Display it here for us to learn from. Perhaps you'll start a revolution.

Actually I missed the obvious Star Trek reference by a country mile ... hunderd lashes with a wet noodle in order !

You're not the only one to notice the disconnect between quantity of negative comment and number of builds.

Peter,

may i ask why you still / keep mounting the Cardas speaker terminals that way. When i was using your amp at brians house i used it one then put it aside because it was such a pain to use. The speaker cables blocked the power / rca connections. How come you don't mount them so the wires will come out the bottom and not the sides?

That was already discussed in a chassis thread.

You are using not typical speaker cable connectors. Get rid of those funny looking spades, use the smallest AQ type or bare wire and you won't have problem with speaker cables connection.

Besides, I don't see a reason to use low mass binding post with high mass spades. The AC connector seems larger than normally as well.

And in closing, that thread is about bronze heatsinks, why are you posting here?

PS: Out of 70 of those amps/chassis sold, you are the first one coming with that question, and you don't even use the amp.

Opps i'll post over there then...

PPS the power plug is the exact same size as any other you would use.

If the connectors you used were rotated 90deg they would work perfectly with all cable's.

Here's the link where I described my preference: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...680#post343680

The binding posts will not be rotated.

The patented posts are an option; regular posts are available as well and one can always use banana connectors.
