I've got an Ameritron ICP-240 inrush protector for this L4. It works ok,
just wondering if there is something better. The only reason I was
interested in the thermistors (but definitely not anymore after
investigating ESR from Panasonic's PDFs) was to avoid the transients caused
by relay chatter in the ICP-240. I noticed that the traces on the board
inside the ICP-240 had started to peel and i've souped it up by using real
wire instead of copper traces.
I looked at the SS-100 on Harbach's site but those relays don't look like
they're up to the job of quenching the thirst of 8 560uF filter C. I could
be very wrong though.
