Going to SMD components would let you shave at least 30-50% of area mostly by shrinking resistors. TO-92 board footprint isn't much smaller than SMD transistors and board width will be determined by heatsinked output transistors. I dunno, maybe some layouting wizard could make it flat mountable on a 2U heatsink. The problem is that many DIY'ers are afraid of SMD parts.Hi.
Would you possibly know of how small a CFA3, and of how small a Dynahi, possibly could be made?
