It plays fine no issue but it feels like its running hot to the touch even at idle. Is this normal??

What part of the heatsink warms up the quickest (from when it's room temperature, no audio in, no load)?

Is the layout essentially the same as the non-cp amp (below)?

Defective driver components. Sometimes the driver transistors open or become leaky but all of the driver components beyond the driver transformers need to be carefully checked.

I assumed that you had repaired it and there was a problem. If the amp has never been repaired, there may be other problems.

I've never opened. Its been on my shelve for a while. I just sold it but before I powered it up to test it. I notice it was warm but didnt think anything of it. Now I have to refund the buyer and figure out whats wrong.

Perry I sent you a picture of the inside for your records. Layout looks the same but there are a few differences. Upon opening I notice a single strand if wire near the output driver card. So far its been on maybe 10 minutes and its not even warm yet.

Thanks.

Loose wire strands can cause all sorts of problems. Hopefully, that's all it was.
