Default Quick Xono Question

Hello,

Does anyone know if the Xono uses any higher quality resistors than the RN55D types and any esoteric capacitors? (I noticed the Pearl Phono pictures showing a Aeon cap for the output)

Thanks,

Aaron Finley

The resistors look quite ordinary if we talk industrial usage but ordinary meens very good I would say!

I like the looks of the pcb's, looks "serious".

BTW: Nelson, why have you chosen to have cross hatched groundplane? Technical reason, your software desides or is it for the looks only?

Is it possibible to take a peek sneak of the schematics? Just curious!

Peranders,

I believe a cross-hatched ground plane has less capacitance than a regular ground plane.

Sorry, but I can't find the link to Xono. Am I blind or...?

I have read somewhere that a solid groundplane ALWAYS is best in electrical terms. It's also an advantage when you make pcb's. It's good to have as much copper as possible in order to get even thickness of the plated copper (only pcb's with plated through holes).

One reason I've heard is that the pcb won't get so stressed when it's machine soldered. The groundplane is more flexible when not solid. Anyone who have heard something else?

It was there on a page with other Aleph manuals
