mee too
but just a little bit

think that Aleph has got more to do
with Nelson Pass ready built big amplifiers, for the Audio market
while Zen is more for sharing towards the DIY Audio community, like us in this forum

probably lots of exceptions to this general policy
Nelson Pass has very wisely decided to keep those 2 branches separate
He will tell you more correct information than I can do.

Here is official website. think you will find some Aleph there:

Default diferences on zen/aleph/xa

my personal findings(in few words)-
zen- very warm discorted(in good mean) sound. like tube amp. like painter
aleph- romantic laid back sound ,much more transparent. like professional painter
xa- discortion free, coloration free, exeptional room information. like surgeon with painters hand.

Okie for the sound, what about the tech spec?
Are they all Class A amps? I have seen some people use upto 120.000uF for Aleph PS filter , is it the same for Zen?
Does Zen dissipate the same power as the Aleph?
