Aleph wire routing question
I am wiring up my Aleph 5 on the bench this weekend. I was going to use a good quality 14 AWG copper 4 conductor cable that I have to wire the driver pcb to the output pcb. I was wondering if its a problem bundling the low level signal wires (sense/gate) with the high current ones (source/drain)? Any issues with noise or anything like that?

I would separate the gate/sense from the source/drain leads and if possible keep the gate totally separate. The drain/source leads carry the amplified signal currents which could feed back into the gate and cause extra distortion and possibly oscillations.

While we're at it, I would also keep all signal carrying leads at some distance (at least a few millimetres) from any metal surface (casing, heatsinks, etc.).

My 2 cents....
