Default Real Aleph 2 Insides?

Has anyone seen the insides of a genuine Aleph 2? Are the output FETs attached to all four sides, or only two?

It's an aleph 3 and is a little modified. There are transistors on all four heat sink faces.

I hope Mr. Pass has forgiven me by now....... it has been awhile. All parts changes and no change in topology. I sort of feel like I have drawn on a mustache on the Mona Lisa or defaced some other famous work of art. Nelson is a laid back and tolerant guy thank goodness.

It looked as if I had wired it.

So does this mean its not going to be possible for us to see the real deal? I've seen some Aleph 30 pictures online which are practically a work of art, but I'd be interested in seeing one of the originals.
