SIC(k) amplifier – Nino Pistone of Sicily's audiozen annonces his new class A/B 200/400w into 8/4Ω monos. Each gets eight silicon-carbide power Mosfets, two rectifier bridges, a 625VA power toroid and 25'000mF of capacitance. "Silicon carbide improves speed over regular silicon Mosfets by three times, lowers distortion by a factor of 10 and has three times higher thermal conductivity" to, he feels, make for ideal audio amplifier output devices and his amplifiers one of the very few to use them.
