How does the DIY aleph X compare the the real thing?
 
I'm just curious how the aleph X amps you guys have built sound compared to the production units?

Don't ask me - I haven't heard any of the DIY units.

:cool:

I thought you converted an Aleph 60 to an X Aleph?

Can someone please send Mr. Pass an Aleph-X. Grey you must have an extra hanging around. What about you Jam? I sent you some boards that were all built up.:headshot:

If they can't get you one, I might be able to get my hands on one.:devilr:

According to a recent post on current share the Aleph final adjustments were based on listening tests.

I suspect the Master spends many a long evening tweaking and taste testing his designs with the Passlabs Crew.

It is therefore reasonable to assume all diy X Alephs, and other Pass diy amps will vary in character depending on subtle variations by the constructor.

I'd offer to ship mine down to Mr. Pass, but I suspect the shipping cost will be on par with the build cost I put into it. Anyone out there within easy driving distance of Pass Labs???

No kidding...I recently bought a bigger SUV to carry my pair of Aleph 2+ to friends houses.

Funny, I was under the impression that there was no such thing as a Production Aleph-X. I though this amp was a creation of Grey's using a blend of Nelson's technology. :confused:

Blessings, Terry

Terry!

You need to read the Aleph-X thread, from the beginning!

The Aleph-X

Then you need to visit the Pass Labs website and read up on the XA Series.

:) :) :)

XA White Paper


I thought i did remember reading someone sent Mr. Pass a pair of the
Aleph-X boards from the first group buy. But something tells me that
Mr. Pass is to busy building new circuits to bother with an Aleph-X :devilr:

What happened to that one you lent me? Did it get parted out?
