Default First Watt F3 & ZV9

My apologies if this has been asked/answered elsewhere, I've been away from diy audio since I finished my Aleph 30 around 2 years ago. Lets just say I am a happy customer and I've been busy.

I decided to get myself up to speed on developments over the last couple years and I've read up a little on the First Watt F3 and then this morning I read the ZV8 & ZV9 articles. Does anyone know the difference between the F3 and the ZV9 (if much at all)? While I'm not in the market to buy an F3 I've heard (read, rather) great things about it. I'm curious if I should build the ZV9 or wait until the F3 sells out to sneak a peak at it and build it?

Thanks for any help!

breguetphile, I don't think the question has been answered, yet. There were some threads speculating from pictures, I think, several months ago. Naturally there is more interest than actuall responses here.
I do have an answer but, I don't think it's the one your looking for, and that is, about 2k$$$ Depending of coarse, on how many parts you have on hand...

There are only a few dis-similarities between the two - a ZV9
is a good enough version.

Well, I don't suppose I'll get a more official answer than that. A ZV9 it is!

Thanks Nelson!

If I were just an audio[listening] guy I don't think I'd have any reason to replace my Aleph 30, it sounds fantastic. However, I've been itching for a new project, and this one sounds pretty fun to build.
