There is no way, forget it.
There is no free lunch, as Papa said.
Aleph-like sound quality needs thermal dissipation.
My Aleph beast dissipate about 1200-1300W.
It is very nice feature in winter season.

If you need less power, you can build Aleph 4 or Aleph 3.

I think sonic signatures are almost the same all of the Aleph's.
They are differs mostly in driving capability, I think.

My Aleph 4 has enough heatsinking for the MOS-FETs but it still cooked the caps. These beasts need some really serious cooling.

One thing in the build is to keep all the banks of 6 at the same temperature.

By the way, aleph 3 looks more suitable for my high-sensivity speakers and the power is sufficient for my room (30 watts). Am i right that the power dissipation is only 100 watts?

3 and 30 practically the same

J having little more detailed sound

in any case , differences are not dramatic and certainly only on taste level, not quality
