I did not learn amplifier design in college. I learned it by doing it for 43
years.

I got 12 in.... sorta and it all comes about because of passion. I just want real high bias on 30wpc, I need no more power, I just thought pushing it wayyyy farther into single ended class A might be an improvement, something I could build. At least the dc part of it is unique, and can be done. Thank you..

I will never forget my first "real" amp, threshold stasis II. I remember reading about bias, and I played with the screws. I could hear the difference. I sold it to a guy who complained that it ran too hot, he later changed his thinking because he had a twin to it that couldn't touch it for quality. I still have pics of that amp. Bias does majic. That little experiment changed my whole mindset and that is the reason I built the aleph3

One thing I never mentioned. Being a perfectionist, I matched all 244's and the little ones to .01vgs. I know it was way tighter than spec, and maybe there is nothing to gain by it. Just me being me...

Here is where my head is at right now, I may be totally wrong here but I want to explain... I tend to think outside of the box.... Imagine you had your own little nuclear power plant, real small 1 megawatt. And you used it to make an amp that was cooled by 2 rivers and only made "my first watt" what would it sound like? Efficiency at .0000000000000000000001?

Im beyond that right now, it runs at 160 deg. However due to my mistake, with fans I can dissapate 900w at idle at 150 deg. F
