Default My good old-new Aleph

Hello everybody !!!

I would like to introduce my Pass Aleph to you.
It is working since more than four years, but I only managed to make photos now. Many thanks to Mark Finnis, who inspired me
building my Aleph Power Amplifier, and the same to the One and Only.

What Aleph is it?
Do you have more pictures? Any sound impressions?

In my definition this is an Aleph 9, because it has 2*9 FETs per side, with 1 Ohm source resistors, 2*47 V rail voltage, 3KVA toroidal transformer, 4* 100.000 uF Capacitors with choke. It consumes approximately 500W power/channel. The heatsinks temperature is 35C above ambient. It has got a weight of 110 kg's (about 240 lbs). Now take a look inside:

This is the soft start circuit with series current limiter resistor and solid state relay.

And that's one heavy Aleph amp. No wonder
it has casters.

Nice...very nice.

Thank you, I started my Aleph5 (or should I know say Aleph6) two years and 4 months ago, so I still have some time left
