That's a very nice start!

Where did you get the transformers and heatsinks?

That looks like a solid construction!

BTW, can this thread be used to post in for all the ZenV9's that are going to be build?

Hi,

The heatsinks are from Conrad,

The transformers I think are imported by the supplier (Jaycar) from China. Yes its going to be a heavy beast.

Why not post all the Zen 9 in here. It should be fun.

Hi eveyone,

thankyou for your comments.

Those vertical fin heatsinks are are for the Power J fet and are insulated from the chassic on nylon spaces and nylon bolts (per the article). They are rated at 1.1 c per watt so with the Power fet disspating 4- 6 watts will operate at 29 c temp in a room ambient temperature of 25C.

Macka

ps I hope to post more images soon.
