I've heard Nelson Pass' Aleph amps being described as looking like porcupines.

Now Mr. Pass can REALLY make his amps look like porcupines.

If that surface profile is necessary for proper heat conduction, I don't see that these heatsinks would be any more attractive than standard aluminum ones. Pretty cool what they can do with materials these days, though.

Best,
KT

The thermal charecteristics are great - better than Al or Cu so they could make very nice heatsinks indeed...

The shape is machined, and can be pretty much anything you like (CNC machining) - but as it's CF, you could have a completely CF case... which would be 'cool' in itself - it could be a clamshell style, or 'tub' style simplifying the overall production process...

Just a though or two..
