it's true, the value of VR101 is wrong, as it has been pointed out also in This Thread Here's a copy of my answer to that: "Hi all, that is the schematic I posted on the AlephX PCB group buy thread. It is directly taken from KK's Site and I've just redrawn it to create the PCB. Now, the value of VR101 is wrong (my BIG mistake! ), it really must be 200 Ohms, as Grey pointed out. I apologise for this mistake. As for R103, the value of 360 Ohms is exactly the same as on the original schematic I mentioned above. I do not know if it makes too much of a difference with Grey's original value of 330 Ohms. With VR101 set to 0, the equivalent value of the parallel of R103 and R104 is 203.85 Ohms with R103=360 and 193.875 with R103=330 Ohms. With VR101 set to 200 Ohms, the equivalent total resistance is respectively 255.53 and 249.1 Ohms. I leave to the experts (I'm not one) to judge whether it's preferrable to set R103 to 330 Ohms or to leave it as it is. As far as I know, several AlephX have been already built following this schematic and they work..." Here's the corrected schematic. Cheers, Bruno

the exact values of R & C on the rectifier boards depend on the diodes used, as well as on the transformer. A commonly used starting point is R=100 Ohm, C=100 nF. Jim Hagerman (Hagtech) wrote a nice tutorial about "snubbers": Snubbers As for the diodes, it depends on how much power you want to squeeze from your amp. For a low output power (2030 W), MUR1560 will be enough, otherwise better use MUR3020WT or equivalent. Cheers, Bruno

Hi all again,
today I ordered a new run of corrected rect. boards. They should be at my place in approx. 3 weeks. Cheers, Bruno

Thx very much!, i have got my boards already, they are fantastic!, but i have a question, what is the value of the resitor on the FETS board.

Hi lscangus,
the source resistors are calculated as follows: R=0.5V/Bias current in each FET. This is a nice tutorial. And this spreadsheet will help you calculate all the important parameters of your AlephX. Cheers, Bruno P.S.: Lately I've been very busy with professional and private matters, and I had to put aside my hobbies (including this one) a little bit. Please bear with me, I will try to answer all your questions as soon as I can, but please, do not get upset if I happen to disappear for a day or two every now and then...

Late arriver ...
Hi carondimonio
I might be late but if I would be interested in a set of PCB's to build a stereo amp. Thanks

What do you mean by 0.5V/bias current? Angus

it means the r value = .5 divided by the bias current at each fet. also look here
