Anyone seen this yet?

www.firstwatt.com

"Aleph X"... that name sounds mighty familiar, but I can't seem to remember where I heard it before??? But the real question is, how will it stand up next to a Peter Daniel custom built chassis?

Seriously though, can't wait to see some pictures. All of the Pass Labs products have been a real source of inspiration for my DIYing.

Don't get too excited. The amps are ugly and prosaic, at
least compared to Peter's.

Prosaic? Now that's just supercilious and pedantic!



Seriously folks, I spent some time in the CES booth and metalwork was on display for The First Watt amplifiers. While not as fancy as the XA or X series the example I saw was VERY nice, very high fit and finish quality, serious aluminum front panel, serious heatsinks...serious all around. I think I have the info sheet somewhere...

Three cheers for Mr. Pass!!!

Mr. Pass, which version of the Aleph-X schematic will you be using? Will you publish it? I would love to build one of these, but I haven't made it through the thread to figure out which one is best/right/decent/not working....I found the thread a few bazillion posts after it started and I'm probably not the only one unable to spend the time to keep up with it.

Back to building speakers for me....

i don't think Mr. Pass is going to publish a schematic for product
that is in production! There's more than enough info in the Aleph-X
thread if you want to build one... there's even an excellent PCB!
That's cheap!

can't wait to see them!

It would be fun to see these sold Benton Harbor style, but the support costs on that stuff are horrendous.

Finding all the parts is half the fun too.
