It is chassis hook up wire, 19 or 20ga.. It is kind of harder to terminate as the strands are enamelled. But it sounds mor 3 dimentional than Kimber I was using previously.

I looked it up in a Gauge to Metric table... Do I got it right that this wire is 0,5mm thick?

Peter, Go for the SOZ, i'd love to see what you come up with!
(they do run HOT though, even at 10 watts!)

((i thought your AX was pretty "no holds barred" already

my brother asked me what i thought the difference was between
my SOZ and Aleph 3 (commercial)... it's hard for me to say.
I guess i'm just bad at comparing things. I think i like the Aleph 3
more, but i think it's just 'cause i'm used to it, and the SOZ hasn't
burned in yet (not even in final case yet)...

comparisons... tricky.

build and have fun!

m.

I think it's pretty close to that in diameter.

I built chassis for SOZ a year ago. It will be 10W version. It's only that I got involved with all that GC craze, that I didn't have time to pursue other designs. But I learned a lot playing with GC and I will be using probably different components, that I initially planned with SOZ. 500VA toroids are at the bottom. I also bought 15ohm, 30W Caddocks, I'll be using in parallel.
