I am wondering if anyone has experience a plateless, burger bottom mount board? I know this has been implemented in the idb60.
Finally got my GB (BOCC, more than two years later ). Originally I got a polycarbonate plate, but during the wait, I have already experimented with this. Curious about trying something new.
My plan is to probably burger mount the PCB regardless, just wondering if I should use a plate or not. I think my gut feeling is that the experience would be a pretty small change, the plate is almost just as flex as no plate it seems. Is it worth having a plateless build in your arsenal?
Since plates have such an impact on sound and feel, going commando is such a different experience all around. If I do end up needing a plate, I tend to stick with FR4 for it’s comparable characteristics.
On the flip side, a fat plate like this would be too good to pass up trying. Lol.
