Default I may be wrong, but. . .

I'd say that amp surely qualifies for the PassDIY logo!

Well put together and good pictures on your site. I have the same profile heatsinks (only 3 1/2" tall) for use on a class AB for the garage. I hope I do as well on my chassis!

Sandy.

Very very nice François.
Must have taken countless hours to assemble these beauties.
How about the sound?

Hi!

Great looking Zen

Can you share some more details about him - e.g - how much power (regarding to heatsinks I supose you've biased it quite high ), etc.

Thank you very much!

The amplifier is 12'' x 9'' x 20'' and there is one transistor per heatsink section. The biggest Zen V4?

The bias is set for 4 ohms and the amplifier is running quite hot but we can touch it for a few seconds

The sound is very impressive, a lot of details. I am rediscovering many CD I don't regret to put so much money and hours in it.

As for the blue led, I have a few ideas that nobody did until now...

I am now ready for the preamp...according to the other people, I guess I will build the BZLS and use it non-balanced.
