Default Orchestral music amp

Which would be the best amp to build or buy for orchestral music with full range speakers in a small room?

Thanks

You can't go wrong with F5, Aleph J, or BA-3 complimentary.

They are all different topologies, and all sound great. Choose whichever seems the most interesting to you.

I have 7 pairs of full range speakers
Next on the list are Feastrex NF5

Japan never got the First Watt F5
J2 are in stock
I guess I will have to build , but I dont have the confidence

Thanks

Thanks

Robert,

Do you know how to solder electronic parts?
If you do, try a L'amp, possible the L'amp v193 verison (10-13 watts). CCS verison is 5-6 watts.

I made the v193 on a wood block. It drives a Lowther PM6A driver.
You can see it in my gallery. Basically point to point and not very complicated, but the sound is very unique.
See L'amp articles in Articles link on the DIYaudio.com site.

With small room and efficient drivers, you won't need much power, so get a good sounding amp.

Or, you could try one of the new push-pull 2SK82/Sj28 SIT amps. Article - Sony VFETs part 1

Best of luck with your search!

Vince

Aleph or a similar type current limited amps are not for orchestral music IMO.
