Do they specifically state mu metal? If so I am very suprised.

From most of the RG integrated models to the $20k monaural power amps.

Skin depth of Mu metal at 50-60Hz makes foil useless, thickest i have is 0.1mm
A can in Mu metal with 0.5-1.0mm wall thickness for a 300VA size does ~$150, cheaper options.

That's very interesting, $150 is quite reasonable. I couldn't find a list of sizes on his website. Is this something you contact him directly for?

The aluminium is 5mm, I have Ultraperm 80 sheets of Mumetal. I'll put them on anyway as it's a nicer finish than the alu alone.

I also notice the on the photo you posted the only openings are at the base (regarding ventilation).
