Default Best sounding aleph ?800->20khz

Today i have a DIY 5 channel Hypex ucd 180 amp to my stereo and Ht and i think its really good, but i think i can get a better sounding amp.

Im asking you guys for a better sounding aleph amp but i dont know what i shall build. I have a 1.5" Jbl driver on a horn playing from 800hz to 20khz. It have around 112db/1w.

So what can you recomend me to build for a 5 channel aleph amp ?

A low powered Aleph, like the 3 would do fine. Alternatively,
I would recommend ZV9.

ZV9 would have the lowest hiss, simply because it has
12.5 dB gain, and the Alephs had 20 or 26. It also has
lower hum and turn-on/turn-off.

Thank you for the input. Is it possible to put a gain control on a zv9 ? Or another aleph ?

One of my problem today is to much power from my ucd 180. I have to turn the signal down in my Dbx Driverack pa crossover, but i rather want to turn the signal up and the amp down.
