If you have a problem with your P-zero, why not contact Audio Note directly. I am sure you will find them most helpful.

Nowhere does mayky say he has a P-zero. Many of us are interested in how commercial equipment is built, either for the design ideas or to make our own (for personal use) "replica". I can see nothing wrong with that.
The only issue may be publishing a copyright schematic.

Do please excuse me; I naively assumed that publishing a copyright schematic was indeed the issue and against the forum rules- I really must read them more carefully.

What I DO know, however, as the Director of Audio Note is a friend of mine, is that they are very open and approachable and welcome any interest in their products. Peter Qvortrup would almost certainly provide a schematic for personal use.

They use very large chassis for all of their equiptment, even DACS. Inside is mostly empty space. They never get hot.

There is virtually nothing new in vacuum tube schematic since 50 - 60 (only hybrid amps are exception). Small tweaks don't need to be counted as real invention.
Even if something was patented/copyrighted, it is expired due to the age.

patenting and copyrighting are hardly the same thing though, wouldn't you agree?

Yes, but none of it can be violated neither for personal neither for commercial purpose.

Original (non-derivative) schematic made with some unique features/algorithms can be patented (its quite expensive process, however,), visual look (if really different from anything else on the market) is copyrighted from the moment of creation.

When it comes to vacuum tube schematic, it can be copyrighted only as picture (drawing, artwork, call it as you like), but it can't be patented because it simply put, typical, and similar solutions exist for over half of century in sheer numbers.

Original visual design (e.g. Wavac, Lars) is also subject of copyright. AuidoNote is not because it is typical for this product range, and many of this company products use industry-standard OEM boxes/enclosures.

Scanned AudioNote vacuum tube schematic can't be posted on forum because it is copyrighted material. However, you can redraw it with any software or just by hand and post anywhere.

Apparently installation is similar to this one.
