YAA! (Yet Another Aleph) Complete
2 Attachment(s)
I finally finished my Aleph 30+ in time for AZ DIY 2003 last weekend. :smash:
Russ took some more pictures at the event here:

You can see it sitting on one of the speaker stands for better convection :hot:

Guts. Will trim those tranny wires now that I know there's no mechanical hum with the trannys that close together.

My first attempt at a homebrew PCB. Low current stuff here, the rest is point-to-point. Pretty much stock Aleph, except 30V rails. Puts out 47 watts if I calculated correctly (8 ohms)

First mono power up, sounds as good as any unbaffled 850146 sitting on the floor has any right to.:cool: And no smoke!

Thanks for the pics!
you just built yourself a "keeper".....give us any other input on the amp as for myself I would like to know!

I like it,
the PCB looks very well thought out and the chassis looks great!

Thanks. We ran it through a few of those speakers and sounded quite nice. Had been using an Adcom amp just before and Norah Jones seemed to become a bit warmer and you could seem to hear some more of the little details. Later listening to Robert Lucas on Russ' MTMs a little too loud it had all the dynamics I could seem to want, no lack of power. Worst thing is, I have maddog doubting his tube gear.:)
