Thank you Jim I'll check and see what Farnell has in stock.I was unsure of what C/W they needed to be.

Be sure to use thermal grease with any heat sink unless you are using thermal pads.

The Toshiba mosfet's are fully encapsulated so goop is all that I'll need.
Would there be any benefit to thermally coupling the output mosfets?

generally - more stable voltage (offset) in output node

worth pursuing

...not that any DC will get past the 10uF capacitor on the output...

:) :) :)

But Thermal coupling is a good idea if there is someway to do it.

Thanks.I'll figure out a way when the boards arrive.

Connect them together with a Mithril bar. If you can't source that, I understand Cavorite works quite well.

The sound would be out of this world :D
