Alan, Noone is saying the inrush limiter is a bad idea. But not everyone is at the same skill level to start modifying all sorts of parts. You posted in another thread you think that it's bad advice to encourage others to even work on their gear because of the potential to damage the boards if soldering skills aren't super. Just run something til it fails and buy a new one was your basic premise rather than fix what you have or do preventative maintenance. So what is it? The OP here is relatively new to working on gear (no offense meant z). He's learning rapidly, but the question posed in this thread shows that he could have done a bit more research into increasing capacitance, where, when, by how much, etc. You're an EE and are comfortable designing your own amp, yet have still had some issues doing so. But, it sounds like you expect everyone to just follow along with your advice, and if they don't, or have a different way of doing things, you take offense. H/K hired engineers to design their amps and they chose a different way than you seem to be heading. No need to get offended, not everyone does everything the same way.
