Aleph 0 loved that load.

Lacking that, you build a simple push-pull follower Fet with lots of outputs and
heat sinks and power supply and bias the crap out of it.

What about the Os? And could I bridge it later on?
Maybe up grade to two.
Thank you Mr Pass

Os not so much. The charm of the 0 was that you could overlay the thd
vs power curves for 8, 4 or 2 ohms and get the same curve up to clipping.

It was developed around Thiel 3.6's.

U formed shortie plug , pushed in 1 & 3 holes in XLR

or decent quality XLR jack , with soldered bridge wire between pins 1 & 3

then RCA input will work

Thanks Zen!
I'll try that in the morning.
If it works does that mean I need a new switch???

for my knowledge , Aleph 0 doesn't have that switch

I made a mistake in previous post , assuming that Aleph is having both RCA and XLR input connectors ; in fact , amp is having just XLRs , so all you need to feed it properly from unbalanced source is to make RCA-XLR interconnect , with XLR pins 1 and 3 joined/shorted
