Nice work arold19!
Really like the look of it.
Guess youīre a lucky man now.

Which speakers are you using with it and how they get on?
As I donīt see a coil or something: Do you hear any noise?

TIA
Jens

I use a two way speakers from Solen design !! I don't know the "real" effcacity but is is about 89 db I think ! The sound is good with the Zen V4 but I have NO control in the bass, if I compare to my tube amp, it is bad !

I didn't make an pi filter.... but I have nothing in the speaker, no noise at all, it is the silence !!!

but it is surprising to don't have noise without coil ??

Actually a lot of people use it but according to the article you might get away without unless your speakers are very efficient.

Iīm still thinking about building the ZenV4 but am worried about my 87dB speaker efficiency and you just confirmed that you bastard.
Probably build it anyway cause I have the parts it needs around.
Some people do biamp with the Zen but I actually like it simple.
I canīt imagine what it sounds like having no control about the bass. Is it like a spongy bass or..?

Regards
Jens

Jens - in need of some bass too

isnīt that voltage regulator much more effective against 50Hz riple than a pi filter? - und: ich kann Dich nur ermuntern ihn zu bauen!

Thanks Till for some positivity about the design.
But as Iīve seen in other threads you really canīt complain about having speakers with too low a efficiency!?

Still the simplicity is what attracts me and one day Iīll build it.
Or maybe an Aleph would suit my speakers more....

And yes the coils are for the high frequency dirt, the regulator should keep a lot of the 100/120Hz stuff away.

Regards
Jens

Jens - thinking about what to build until he has got the money for an X1000
