Bronze is the best material for tower bells...but for heatsink ? How do you mean it, that is sonically better, Peter ? ;)

Duuhh, the music is clear as a bell I guess!!:D

Peter Daniel 27th March 2006 06:25 PM

Exactly ;)

Anyone care to explain why bronze is sonically better?


Upupa Epops 27th March 2006 07:21 PM

In oposite to copper is bronze free machining.... ;)

I am a beginner here in every sense of the word. I am confused as to how different heatsink materials can (as you propose) affect the sonic characteristics of the opamp. Could someone explain this to me or provide a link to a place where I could read about this?

Peter, the amp looks great and is beyond me in many aspects. I look forward to researching it more in a few years. Keep up the good work!

Hi Upupa,

Anyone got an answer???

Upupa Epops 27th March 2006 07:27 PM

Make diamond heatsink - it have good thermal conductivity and will be probably the best ( except price, certainly... ) :D

We could sit and argue heatsink audibility for days, and get nowhere. But I think we can all agree that once again, Peter's construction is top notch, and his design is perfectly pitched for his intended market.

Let's wait and see what the reviews say, I'm sure it will be on 6moons in the near future. ;)

my guese

heat transfer, electrical field, grounding.

when the moon is in line with the earth:D

i have found using types of metals as a heatzinc changes the sound but very little. its all the little things that makes a good amp;)
