just read VA figures ...... welder area

besides that - we all know that silent PSU isn't just about C bank size , but also about physical arrangement of current paths

[QUOTE=buzzforb;3382212]Of course, but dedicated listening rooms may not be prevelant in diy circles, as many are building to have smething they could not otherwise afford.

buzzforb. The patent on suppresing standing waves [US 4899387] stands out among its neighbors like a beacon. One may ask what's its got to do with Xs technology? Mr. Pass inserted it in this mix for maybe two reasons:
  • The power and accuracy of the Xs amp in conjunction with the driven loudspeakers suppresses standing waves.
  • Best to cleanup standing waves in the music room to fully appreciate ultimate performance.
The patent is a hybrid diy speaker-amp application. Doable; noting that you as a good example, diys both disciplines.

Best regards.

(plenty vendors of tin-plating solutions. Scotch-Brite rub, Hannibal Lector acid soak, and in the tin deep-end they go. Vogue ones can opt for even fancier "hair" dye bottles)

@ Antoinel:
there is much less agendas in real world than you're implying , at least for my knowledge

that issue ( room correction) is , of course , audio stuff , but no way strictly connected to XS amps (thread)

Jacco - nothing wrong with bare copper ; tinned one is good for selling to snobs

Everything wrong with bare copper.

Plated mounting holes and a spray coating (resin/plastic) for the rest would work too, for snobs. A tin bath is less pretty, but more KISS.
Or pick a fatter aluminum plate.

(there's a case study report on sulphuric acid lying on my shelf, signed by yours truly)

I was thinking copper spayed with clear coting before installing caps, but i kinda like FiFi tin stuff idea....if I kind find/do it. I really am starting to close down shop....a little, so time to refine the designs and get to serious business. Jacco, he called you a snob

Bare copper iz for rooftops and statues...... but really nice for that!!!! Toss 'em into the alodine tank for a bath - but for an 85K$ amp a bit of gold plating would look pretty sexy....

Great idea. May also consider other color options from Platinum , Rhodium and Iridium to follow and complete your line of thinking.
