No offence taken! :cool:

Yes, that is what is being discussed there. It's going to be tricky to do. You will be more sure of your results and the long life of the amp if you use a good input cap.

You can opt for a simple on/off switch for 'soft-start' as what I did for my version of Charlize....

Thanks vt4c, and thanks for the pictures, it will help me to build my own.. My Charlize will arrive in two days, and I look forward to mess with it :-) It's gonna be hooked up with a modded Squeezebox and some 95dB (C17-III) speakers from Troels Gravesen, he makes some really nice designs -if anybody should be interested:

I already got a smps skynet 8080 power supply -do I need anything between the smps and the amp? (sorry this question has probably been in the thread but I am a little confused)

Start with nothing, listen, and then add caps and listen again. When you get to say 4K7 or above, add bypass caps, say 100 nF polypropylene types. There really is no substitution for finding the best arrangement for your ears. ;)

I've changed my project based on Charlize due to all the tips i've found on the web.
My final setup is:

1. Charlize with air core inductors
http://www.diyparadise.com
2. SMPS Skynet 8080 as PSU
http://cgi.ebay.it/SMPS-8080-Power-S...QQcmdZViewItem
3. CAPS: 2x4.700 Uf/63 ELNA with 100pf bypass Caps and 1x6K8 5W as discharge resistor
3. Mundorf Mcap 2.2 uf as input capacitors
http://www.lautsprechershop.de/hifi/cond_mun_en.htm
4. Stepped Attenuator 10K
http://www.diyfidelity.com.au/produc...447f5df044bdd4
5. Case Galaxy from hifi2000
http://www.hifi2000.it/default.asp?id=16&mnu=16
6. A couple of gold plated RCA
7. A couple of gold plated Speakers socks
8. CAT 7 Cable for wiring signal path
9. OFC cable to wire Charlize to speakers socks


hope it helps ;)

Any comment or opinion is well accepted
