Just about to order the kit from store :0

Have a newb question - How critical is it to have a thermal pad between TO-247/220 and heatsink? I noticed guys in other threads are just applying cpu thermal paste and not going the thermal pad route. I thought I read somewhere that without it it could be easier to shock/static ?

Thanks

pads are electrical isolation

it's nono having several output devices connected electrically in not intended manner

So the back of the TO-247/220 devices are live? I thought it was only their 3 legs that were connecting to the pcb?

On another note, does anybody know when the ACA chassis will be available?

The latest ACA kits already have the best- Keratherm Red. Much better specs than Silpads. They are also costly, but we want the kit to be easy and high quality. Look in the second list: "Hardware"

http://www.diyaudio.com/store/amplif...-camp-kit.html

There's a reference to "insulators and grease" but that's a mistake. Yes there are insulators, the Keratherms, but no grease as grease shouldn't be used with the Keratherm product.

If you're just looking for the insulators the first batch of Keratherm insulators sold out quickly, but there is another order in process..

Thanks Variac. I have some other projects lined up with mosfets and will need to order for those.

Any word on chassis eta and cost? Is it a dual chassis design?

The Chassis pairs are finalized and are in production. We may have a way to get them shipped more quickly so it will be soon..

They are monoblocks, have a machined 10mm front panel with text and a pair will be around $150 plus shipping.

Cool. Sign me up for a pair of the Chassis (will they have names or are they only to be referred to as Chassis)?
