Hi Bakmeel,

I wouldn´t worry too much. Just not as controlled as the X. Without comparisson it wasn´t very obvious.

Please note that these comments only fit a Thiel CS6 and to lesser extend Dynaudio W42`s and CS3.6

Jacco,

see above. No comment on droolers, sorry

I built my Aleph 2 with 4 extra fets for the extra current. If you leave all else unchanged, you get 50% more current capacity (and heat). You also could tweek up the AC current gain to get more peak current on the pos swing.

Build the Aleph 2 and see how it goes.

It puts almost 200 watts into 4 ohms as I recall.

Ok so i'll stick to the Aleph 2... thanks all for the advice. I feel more confident about the choice now.

Soon i'll make first tests with the power supply

How "boomy" would you expect an Aleph 2 to be?
Not boomy at all and not the type of "slam" a Krell can muster up but I ike to call the bottom end of the 2's more articulate and realistic sounding. . I built a pair of 2's probably three years ago now and I love them. Still use them on an almost daily basis. My speakers are Dynaudio Audience 9's which also dip a tad bit lower than their normal rated impedance. I over heatsinked my 2's and also "upped the bias" a bit. Fantastic amp overall.... I would never part with them......

They also help take the load off the gas bill in the winter!

Mark

I agree Mark,

Lovely foot warmers but make sure your pussy cat does not grill herself by falling asleep on the amp over night. That happened to me one night, I had to peel her off in the morning!

Lucky for me I don't like cat's Dissipation is actually just an extra impact on the energy bill...

It was a joke...I hope no one took me seriously.

Yes the power bill, but warmth welcome in winter.
