Default Favorite Pass Amp Poll

Due to a request for a proper polling method for "Favorite First Watt Amp", I have started this thread.

Original "write-in" voting thread is here:

POLL: Which is your fave Pass design ? F3, F4, F5, AJ

Please add comments or write-in another amp not mentioned in poll.

How many of you have built the J2 and where's the schematic for it?
The answer is probably 5 of you, including Mr Pass.

We can start another Poll and add another 10 amps. Don't think there would be a problem finding 20 more.

Well you do say favorite Pass design, without specifying that we built one.

Well, that's because diyaudio.com store sells ready built amps.
What are we talking about here?

Point taken. On the other hand, someone has to actually buy the First Watt stuff. I work with electronics all day, so it was nice to simply buy a good amplifier. With Mr. Pass you know what circuitry you're getting if you read his literature, and I like the looks of the First Watt chassis design. I wanted a class A amp for powering my horns, and the J2 has been everything I hoped, and more.

Damn, you're cheating... those semisouth and lovoltech should be banned from the list. Yeah, those stuff clearly won over many class-A amps in a blind test. There's no substitute for better transistor for best amp
