Does anyone have an educated idea as to the life expectancy of the big class-A Gryphon amplifiers? How old are they before caps and relays start to become an issue?
Thanks. I am working with a manufacturer on a custom equipment rack for the Gryphon, and with glass doors to close off the front to keep from small prying fingers...we were not only going to create a large volume of space with ventilation louvers...but also 2 fans to extract heat from the rear of the cabinet (which will be entirely open as well...no back).
Interesting. Had not thought about acoustic baffling...mainly because so much of the cabinet (back plus side louvers) will be open. Certainly am investigating the quietest fans...and also making sure we can turn them on/off easily. We also intend to have the 'ceiling' in the cabinet sloped so that rising heat is naturally drawn upward and OUT towards the back.I’m also working on a custom cabinet design for my Essence setup. It’ll have an open front, but need to create some airflow. Fortunately the Essence is reasonable for a Class A amp so I should be able to cool it silently with a couple Noctua fans and some acoustic baffling.
