Dirk, no I didn't get that far. the project has always been mounted on thin plywood.I have thought about the need for grounding but won't attempt it till I get some really cheap tweeters. The three I blew were decent quality Vifa drivers (ouch!). I've put that project on the shelf till I get the integrated build done, but will take your advice when I get back to it.

Thanks

Oh! I'm not offering advice! I actually don't know if the heatsinks should be grounded. It's my assumption though that it would be best. Good luck!

Your comments are completely welcomed. My point was that unfortunately nothing was grounded - not even a connection to the ground lug on the mains in. I got away with it while building other amps. But, sooner or later - cutting corners does do us in.

I guess there are as many "Best sounding apms" as there are speaker systems...
