I’ve thought of adding those heat sinks to various pieces I have here. Are there any potential downsides you can think of? I can’t, but I don’t know everything.Ordered press on heat sinks for the germanium transistors. Heat seems to be an issue with their longevity. Cables for output to a PS 200 Crown amplifier. They both use 1/4" phone cables. The speakers will be the Klipsch Cornwall II.
Thank you. These pieces I’m considering are a lot newer- late 80’s-mid 90’s- and I have to assume that either the designer/engineer deemed it overkill and unneeded for the application or that the budget department was pinching pennies for a target price point.No downside I can see. Careful fitment when applying them so as not to damage the transistor. Thermal management was in it's infancy in 1965.
