In case you wonder why two separate banks of caps on the left and right.
The two Tx secondaries has a bridge rectifier each, then connected to 2 caps in parallel.
This then goes to either the positive and negative regulator, before going to another 2 caps.
Only then are they connected at the +Vs, -Vs and Gnd connections of the amp PCB.
i.e. there is a single true star Gnd right at the centre of the PCB.
And the different connections around the star Gnd are short as one can imagine for a power amp.

Speechless, I was so excited that I even asked my wife whether she could haul this back to me next month while she will be attending her 30th anniversary high school graduation reunion in HK Her response was as cold as the heat sink in the picture

One off topic question, where did Mark source the transformer plate and screw? The transformers from Richard didn't come with that. I think I will need 2 sets to mount the transformers.

Richard will supply mounting kits if you ask

All screws, including the ones for the transformers, are supplied.
(In 304 stainless steel, which is non magnetic of course).

Absolutely stunning Patrick and Mark - very well worth the wait!
I'm confident the sound will match the looks
Cheers,
Nic

P.S. Are the metal feet part of the case kit?
