Looks to me like you will need a suitable case for a start. Then I would suggest an IEC inlet socket that comes with its own mains switch and fuse holder. I would then suggest a 3.15 amp slow-blow fuse. Note slow blow not fast blow!
The fuse in the IEC socket is to protect against surges in input AC current, correct? Would you know if the fuse modules that accompany the Antek PSUs (the ones that sit atop the terminal PCB) accomplish the same function? Or do these protect against output DC current surges (secondary fuses on the DC rails)? If the fuses in this module do govern input AC current, can these modules be used in place of a fuse in the IEC socket?
Also, reading through your webpage, I noticed that you state that large capacitors will potentially rob some of the midrange detail (your example uses 10,000 uFs - which is what comes with the Antek PS-3N30). Do you think the capacitors in the PS-3N30 are too large?
Finally, do you think that the 300W PS-3N30 is already overkill? Would the 400W or 500W versions of this PSU add any benefit in your experience? If these are overkill, what is the limiting factor? The tripath chip itself - or other factors in the DC pathway (such as the small gauge DC cable that will be compatible with the barrel connectors on the Virtue amplifiers)
