They have a range specially made for audio, good prices too.
Now that is a very good tip! Thank you!

Being a greedy Dutchman, I will write to them in English. I hope they will answer...

Has anyone ordered with them from abroad? How smooth went the transaction?

The question is how much of it is left after the filtering in the PSU. Anyway it would be nice to hear from someone who did a comparison...?
using shottky can't do any harm ;
fact is that Papa is using them in Pass Labs products , even if earlier he said he didn't found them better sounding .

so - that leave choice to you ....

They won't be more fussy on spending money, but once they get angry, they will more readily switch from class A to class B, I guess...

Some would call that tempera-mental, but that also has its advantages, I guess

Since she's YOUR grilfriend, she wont be fond of "potten"

But really, they look very smart, and I guess I would have done the same!

Is anyone doing a group buy with Plitron? I have a 300VA transformer but I may build mono blocks instead.

I'm planning on milling a 10mm front plate with a cut out where the cable's can run trough.
Here is the CAD view of the situation:

500 pages!

There's an orphan F5 kit of parts on its way to the Netherlands -- the original was delayed for 2+ months and just arrived. If anyone in Holland is interested, I guess it could be trans-shipped without incurring egregious duties. Contact me off line. Sometimes stuff gets to Australia in 2 days, or takes 2 months via USPS Priority Mail to Germany, go figure.
