Nelson Pass's favorite is the Aleph 2
Monoblocks, 100w ea. I believe

The Aleph 4 is 2 of these in one box but with less bias current.
Not quite as good apparently-of course very very good nonetheless

Go to: to find out more
Also you really should spend an hour or two just doing searches on this site regarding Alephs-it will clarify, also you will discover things like circuitboards available, etc. You will need all this periferal info when you actually built it -trust me!!

Also you won't be asking the same questions already asked
This question for example has been addressd before.

I can tell you that there are 90% more information now on this forum on the Aleph series amp than say 3 months ago. BUT, good luck trying to use the search feature.

Also there are threads that discuss in great details on how to build chassis. Example would be a thread called "Tools and Technique" and a few others. I find it most helpful.

All of the Aleph owners manuals and service manuals with schematics and some board layouts are at the Pass Labs
Alephs page here:

Fcel is right though, you'll have to search this forum's older threads to get a lot of good build info.

Have Fun,

If my memory serves me well, Nelson also rated the Aleph 60
(volksamp) very highly

If you feel you are very capable at the art of DIY'ing then you might try the Aleph 0's or 1 or 1.2, but you'll be a relative pioneer in this area. If you think you might need some assistance from this forum and ready made board designs and others with their experiences building Aleph's, you should stick with the Aleph 2 or 4. There are many who have finish or are currently working on these Aleph clones frequenting the forum now.

Good Luck,
Rodd Yamas***a

P.S. As I was writing this post, I knew I seen something on the Aleph 1.2 recently. Well here's the link for 1.2 boards.
