ZP3 in cabinet
02/13/17 at 18:33:38
 
Hey folks, this is my first post here. Am pretty sure that I will order a ZP3 in the coming months; I have a question in to Steve about output impedance and cables, but I think that's not gonna be an issue for me in the end. My question to you all is: how much heat does it throw off? I may have to put it inside a cabinet, but the rear is open and the front door is perforated. Given my previous tube experience (Sonic Frontiers pre and Berning ea-230's) I doubt that this will be an issue, but I know that some tubes tend to radiate more heat than others.  Let me know your thoughts, and TIA!

I don't think it would be an issue at all.

Hi Bob,
I think you will be just fine.  I have a Salamander cabinet with an open back, perforated doors and perforated side panels.  I have all of my Decware amps in this cabinet and with my home theater setup I run 4 amps at once and have not had any issues.  I can't imagine just the single ZP3 being an issue.
