    Excellent pics Glen! I actually saw something in the Phase Linear picture that shows an item I have on a Soundcraftsmen amp. Looks like a starburst shaped sleeve that's on the little capacitors??? Are they for cooling? That Outlaw Audio M200 amp looks like it would be sweet for a center channel amp.

    The things you describe are indeed heat sinks, to dissipate heat. They are usually found on transistors and/or integrated circuits (i.e., active devices) that dissipate some heat, not on capacitors. Some power resistors will have a similar structure, typically built in to them.

    Thanks for the info mrh, I looked closer at Glen's pic of his Phase Linear and the heatsinks are on something that looks more round and flat and not cylindrical like a cap. :wink: I really admire how the Japanese made their electronics so well organized under the hood.:). That Pioneer looks beautiful.

    Yes, the starbust shaped sleeves are heatsinks, placed on the driver transistors to dissipate heat. The top Classe picture and the SAE2400 also have ones that are clearly visible. In the Class

    Not mine. Audio Research VT200MKII.
    My buddy's shop recently got one in on consignment. I listened to it tonight and am SERIOUSLY considering selling my dirtbike to fund it.

    And yes...that's *8* *pairs* of 6650Cs.
