Default looking for preamp project for Aleph 3

After done the recapping of my recently acquired Pass Lab Aleph 3, I am looking forward to build a Pass Lab preamp for it. It seems that Aleph P is the most recommended. And there is a Pumpkin preamp. I would appreciate some suggestion on which one to build based on the sound, availability of PCB boards, and helps that I might get from this forum.

Thanks a lot!!

well , I'm biased

I'm finding somewhat better than venerable P , even if is also sort of already venerable ;

but - my pcbs offering is paused for now , because I'm tired of constant inventing new ways to have Paypal account , while living in country which isn't covered by Paypal . They said it will be operative soon ..... so I'm just waiting for thing to happen

That is too bad. I was interested in Pumpkin amp but there seems to be some issue of getting the pcb. Thanks for the explanation.

So is there any other means to get the pcb of either Pumpkin or Aleph P? Is there group buy recently?

Thanks!!

That is new to me (and bear with my ignorance on speaker amp) and I'll look into it.

Thanks for the hint.

But, is its pcb easier to get? Thanks!

I tried ZenMods Pumpkins and am having problems with them. I'm going to try the Aleph P1.7, the circuit schematic is available from KK-PCB but I'm using my own.

My Power Amp is the Aleph 4.

Watch this space I might be selling two Pumpkins and two Shuntkys. They are complete and do work but not quite as expected.

I wasn't aware of the diyAudio store. Definitely will check it out.

I read some comments on KK-pcb but will look into it if there is no other options.

I've never bought from KK-PCB but ZenMod had some very derogatory comments about the quality of their boards.
