Default Seperate PSU Pro/Cons

As the title states, what are the pros and cons and are there any tips on setup if going with standalone PSU.

hefty connectors ; Speakon possibly?

CRC or CLC ; final C in case with amp electronics

Yes, final C in the amp case.
All the high pulse charging currents kept beside the transformer.

Excellent. SpeakOn is the connector of choice. Whether to put part of the filtering inside amp case was a big question. If using regulated supply like Juma did in his 2sk2013/J313 F5, does this stay with the Trafo since it is doing a lot of the filtering. Is it more ideal to have multiple small caps as last C in CRC making for easier load. what about noise pickup on cables? I have been looking at 4c cable usually reserved for speakers, but it is unshielded.

reg - whatever is easier for you , but better integrated with amp

multiple caps - usually better , but not if comparing big good ones and small bad ones

shielding is not necessary at those levels of current ( if I resume well that we are speaking strictly about power amps )

good one

especially because shield can be used also for transferring safety earth to amp case

I have found some others that I am looking at. Sourcing that fine looking cable would probably be difficult.

We just bought 50m
ÖLFLEX CLASSIC 100 CY 3G2.5 at work. Besides using it at work, I plan to use it for power cables and internal cabling (power entry to transformer).
I know Farnell sells some types of Lapp cable. Not sure if they sell this one.
