We'll see They are currently on the wrong side of the planet, but we're shipping this batch in bulk by air to apologize for taking so long, and they still have to get through customs and loaded in to fulfillment center in LA, at which point they can then "ship" to you. So fingers crossed

Default And a completed unit

In a very satisfying couple of days, the Amp Camp Amp was built by my partner (with a little help from myself) and is now playing beautifully.

I was fortunate to watch the lady of my life sand, solder, brush finish aluminium and, most importantly, smile when she heard it play. It's been a fun and rewarding experience for us both and I loved being able to share this experience with her.

Thanks!

Default Amp Camp Decision

I'm about to pre-order the Amp Camp full kit. Just two questions. I'd like a volume control; some kind of simple preamp or perhaps an in-line volume control like the kind you can put between MP3 source and headphones.
Also I'd appreciate any input on compatible speakers. Looking to spend around $300 to $500 for speakers.
Comment, suggestions?

What is the sensitivity of this amplifier - doesn't seem to appear on the original article or product page?

14dB gain for 5watts @ 8 ohms works out to ~1.25volts.

1.25 volts ensures it will work with a wide range of sources and preamps, another good design feature.....

I have only built the ACA and F5, but they sound very similar to me. A very clean,relaxed and stable presentation. The F5 sounds a bit more full with the ability to output a measure more of that character. Both are inviting and easy to listen to. Have never heard an Aleph of any size.

Hi friends,

If I knew what I know now, I shouldn´t have built the F5 and stay with the ACA. I feel it is the same for me. I expected a more powerful sound but it is practically the same. The output stage of the F5 is made with the same mosfets as the ACA so the increased power comes from higher voltage power supply and higher bias ( sorry if I am in error, my knowledge of electronics is limited so I am guessing).But the sonic character is mainly the same in both amps.

Thanks very much to Mr. Pass for sharing his Know-How.

Regards,

Jorge
