Tyimo, I ask myself the same question As to your question about anyone building the ZenV9, take a look here :
http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...974#post888974
The sound is just amazingly good from that amp, the topend is just smooth and great The only little catch is the limited power-rating of 2x 15 watt's. My main speakers are rated at 82dB sensitivity and my second pair are rated atn 86 dB. The ZenV9 sounds great with my second pair Which are ProAc 1s clones
On another note, I hate to think that I am actually the only one building stuff around here??

Hi Steen,

It's on the page as well...but I'll do a translation (just of the first sentence

The handles are 32,50 per pair. i.e. not included in the prices mentioned above.

And if you are wondering: The version with 18 CM high and 30 CM deep will result in 47 degrees celcius when running a standard Aleph 5.

The largest one can dissipate 400 Watt.

Rick is really into the Pass scene. On my request he even added a 2x60V, 2x12V 120 VAC encapsulated transformer to his goodies. Great for the Kari boards!

Greetings, Harry

I can also recommend this company. Quick to reply on emails, focussed on what we like and nice products for a reasonable price. (no affiliation whatsoever btw.)

I threw a quick ZV9 together a couple of days ago, but wasn't particulary impressed with it, so it had a real short lifespan. At this moment I'm playing around with a mutation of the ZV1 which is heavily biased and using a different bias circuit, it sure sounds better to my ears than the ZV9.

For now I will limit myself to making an all jfet balanced single ended amp, something like ZV7, just jfet and lower rails.

Besides that I have planned to make a cascoded version as well, so I am actually in the market for a few more jefets, I only got like 30 or 40 of them.
