Hi all,
This may sound strange but Palesha raised this point in one of our e-mails.
Many famous amps (Leach, JLH, Aleph, Zen, ESP etc) were designed is countries colder than India. Does anyone think that there will be a difference in performance when these are operated in tropical countries and what about the heatsink issue?

Yup, Christmas and new year parties in 40*C heat and I get plenty of repairs in.
At normal level is not such a problem, but running at full power for extended period can be.
Running in hifi cabinets with inadequate ventilation is the killer.
A few modern shelf style combination systems have fan forced cooling.
Effective and quiet fan cooling can be quiet and relatively cheap.

Regards, Eric.
