Default What do you like?

I think the Aleph is very smooth.
The ASKA is very clear and detailed.
The Aleph-X is in the middle.
Two notes
1. It depends on the voltage and bias of an Aleph.
2. Feedback can also be changed to get different sounds.

This becomes interesting:

What have been your expereinces on tuning the sound of an Aleph-X ?

More current = more details ?
Less feedback = more natural, but looser bass ?
HIgher-Voltage = less distortion ? = Better resultion but more analytical ?

I wish i could tell you that. I can only let you know what I like.
More current, warmer more tube like sound.
Less feedback more high frequecy response. More gain.
More voltage. Still playing around with this one. I built a mini-a like an Aleph 5 (+/-34 volts). Then changed it back to (+/- 18 volts). I am still listening to it. Not much difference at low to mid volumes.

The AKSA is a clas AB kit from.

I had a chance to listen to it at Dale's house and compare it to the first Aleph-X I built. It is a very nice sounding amp. I have not built one yet. I can't seem to get away from the Aleph 30 , AX and Mini-A s.

Jrsun,

The AKSA is a kitset Class AB power amplifier from Australia available in 55W and 100W variants. It can also be built down to 25W.

Upgrades, using exotic components, are also available.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Prune,


I see you are in Vancouver, I might be able to arrange for you to hear the 100 Watt AKSA and an DIY Aleph 5 if you are interested.

I'm in East Vancouver.

You can e-mail me at anthonydavid40@hotmail.com

Hi Tony,

Since a visit to Vancouver is a bit far for me, could you please be so kind as to post your own impressions when comparing the 100 W Aksa with the DIY Aleph 5...?

Thanks!

Lucas
