Default Softstart for Zv9?

Do I need a softstart for one of these amps? If so what are good ones?

thanks!

Why not use a thermistor. Try a CL-60. I use one for my Aleph 1.2 clone.

Best regards

hello

I use this diagram on my aleph 5, and that functions well
I also will use it for a Zen V9

The one I am building will use a softstart, because it will be in an active system.

I'm re-using the one I designed for my Aleph 5.
This one can be switched on by external power, and has connections for thermistors to protect the amp from overheating.

The F3 and ZV9 have extremely soft starts, as it takes a
couple of minutes for the supply filter to charge. I have not
found any need for additional circuitry.
