Its the Lowther America Alerion, that Mr Verhalen very generously let me build after his original plans since I live outside America. Plans, that now are deleted from my harddrive and cant be requested..

I had a pair for a year or so (loan) and they were great. My favorite amp with
them would be the F3 (ZV9), unless you shoot for the upcoming generation of SIT amps.

Thanks.

I was hoping for the f4 or f5, would have been easier for me with the DIY store boards..



Oh well, guess I need to start reading the documents then.

AND if someone still got two f3/zv9 pcbs around, I might be interested.

Well, I have found two ZV9 boards + psu boards, populated with fets. Its the boards from the diy gb some years ago.

Do anyone have the schematic files from this thread: PC Boards for v9? post #7?

It seems the image host link is down.

Default I am a little late to the party here

I am assuming the SIT-2 is out of the picture, but it is awesome with the Alerion's if you can twist your budget for that. The J2 is also a favorite.

This is one of those occasions where I am going to disagree with Nelson's taste. I just love the F2-J-fet with the Alerion's. It helps extends the bass response, as well as the highs to a slight extent, is dynamic, and is sweet. F1-J-Fet is a little more powerful, and more neutral, but not as sweet.

Nelson prefers the sweetness of the F3, I prefer the dynamics of the F5. You have to decide which you would prefer. Neither will disappoint.

Coldcut- I am using a First Watt J2 with the passive B1 preamp with my Alerions. They have the DX65 drivers, and that combination of electronics with the Alerions is amazing- highly recommended.
