Default Greetings from the Netherlands

Hello, i am Edwin from the netherlands.

I do love high quality audio, and as time come the idea of building my amplifiers myself keeps slumbering in the back of my head.

Thanks to this forum, i have the chance to do so.

Still in the learning proces.

Hi Ed,

some here have had those ideas for years, some even in several cranal sections.
Lobotomy could be an answer, may even be cheaper than continuing this hobby.

Maybe we can have a talk in the qeue at the Botlek passage soon.

Hi Jan and Jacco,

I didnt realise that i have not mentioned my first name.
My name is Edwin so you are close.

Thrue the years i have tried bo build a tube preamplifier and a solid state power amplifier.
I never finshed them and in the end sold the components.

1.5 year ago i got an itchy feeling on my head, and realised that it was the diy bug crawling to the surface.

I start browsing for a nice Class-A design.
The designs on the internet are overwhelming, and as i am not an electronics engineer it is difficult to trust a design and build it for a lot of money and take the risk it is a piece of crap.

I once landed on a site of someone (He is/was a member of this forum) who made his heatsinks himself.
The amplifier he was building was a class-A design called Zen design by Nelson Pass.
Here whe go again i thought.
Another guy who thinks he can design an amplifier.

I checked the link to this guys webside and was totally blown.
This man really knows how to design an amplifier.
Sorry for my ignorance Nelson
From that moment i know it must be an Pass design.

To make an short story long.
I am collecting parts to build two Aleph-2 monoblocks and a Bosoz preamplifier.
In the meantime i am also building new speakers, the Hatt mkIII from Tony Gee.


I enjoy this forum for 1.5 year now but never registered myself silly me.


It is always nice to have a little chitchat.

see you
Still in the learning proces.

Hi Edwin,

greetingz from near Utrecht here

I had the same experience with mr Pass. The first time I heard about Zen and other things, I thought: Nice name, but probably crappy amps... Just thought out a good name (just like Opel, it has a very good brandname, but those cars...bweghhh)....

Until I saw a thread about building a Aleph amplifier on another forum (Dutch) and started reading about this Mr. Pass.... and wowie, he is indeed GOOD!
So, also from me: sorry mr Pass

Welcome, and have fun on this forum.... If you ever get lost somewhere and by accident you drive on the A2, I'll see you

Grtz, Joris
