Peter Daniel is already working on a potential layout, so all we need is maybe 50 people interested to make this a reality.

Count me in for two sets please

Experiences read regarding the j are very positive indeed. Over on audiocircle one guy intimated the F3 was laid back and not as exciting as the aleph J!! Another felt the aleph j was better than the aleph 30 and I believe I am right in saying the man himself stated preference for the J over other alephs!!

I agree. I have read over all the variations F1 to F5 quite a few times. Initially I felt the F3 was the pick of the bunch however I think it is more suited to very efficient speakers or headphones.
Considering how popular the Aleph 3 was and the fact that Nelson prefers this Aleph J over all of them then I think this will be a very special amp.

From what I understand, the J can be built from the briangt Aleph30 boards that are easily (and cheaply) available. If someone was kind enough to post a step by step, then there would be no need for another pcb/board layout.

I would be modyfiing my A30 layout from years back. The good thing about it is that mosfet spacing is perfectly compatible with F4, F5 and soon coming F2 boards.

I take it there will be boards with output devices only attached on one side and not on both sides as shown in Peter's picture???Configuring the chassis would otherwise be very difficult for me especially with the size of heat sinks involved in these types of amps.

Well I suppose once we have the numbers we can discuss how we would like the layout to be

I'd be interested in one, maybe two stereo sets. Depends on what price they end up I guess.

Ciao,

Mark

I would probably also have to go for a stereo set....

Especially if the FET layout is the same as on the PD A30 so it will be a direct swap
