Default YAA! (Yet Another Aleph) Complete

I finally finished my Aleph 30+ in time for AZ DIY 2003 last weekend.
Russ took some more pictures at the event here: http://community.webshots.com/album/98271869gsHdnS

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

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. And no smoke!

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.
