Default Oh!...do not talk in this Creamy wiskie.... i will find it in some shop

And i will drink the full bottle..... that one is wonderfull.

Hic!....hic!

regards,

Carlos

.................................................. .................................................. ............

Yes Line up

We are always searching for wonderfull things.. even better things... i think this is the reason why we do not feel intirelly happy, because we are always having desire related something material.

Material things are great till you unpack them and start to use...in a matter of days you will be (ME) perceiving weak points, failures, non perfect things.

We are this way..... and i think this is something very bad for us.

Better if we remove those material needs.... unhappy moments are connected to material things...when we need them we will be in troubles..for sure.

regards,

Carlos

I built my AKSA in 2004 and I have built several highly regarded amplifiers since. Nothing comes close to the AKSA for involvement and it's music making ability. The way it presents music just suits me and my partnering equipment.

I haven't heard the Lifeforce which has received plenty of raves and I believe builds on the AKSA but my 55N+ will remain as I have stopped searching for something better.

To top it off even further, Hugh's instructions and support are second to none.

Total winner in my books.

It would be interesting to see how the Aska would stand up next to a Leach design. Professor Leach's designs are hard to beat.

Ditto to what Rabbitz said except change 2004 to 2002.

Default Absolutelly no chance for Leach Amplifier, at least to the smaller one

I have mounted and tested....it was dismounted and forgoten.

Sorry...but the true is thrully a truth.

Well, my ears true, of course.

Leach lovers do not think so...obvious!

But i had compared...and leach folks maybe not.

Also they will say that i have not used that transistors Mr. leach suggested..the board was not yellow, the speaker was not JBL...well..they may say a lot of things.

My Aksas received bad treatment, polarity invertion (did not burned nothing!), i have tried many different transistors and sound excelent with everyone...circuit makes the job, not only special transistors.

Lifeforce is even better, also perfect for instruments and will make Mr Meterings and Mr. Scope very happy, ...also Mr. Spectrum Analiser and others..... perfect precise, deep bass, nice trebles, live performer, enormous dinamics as can beat a 100 watts unit even beeing 50 watts (rated)...precise.... something near the technicall perfection.

Aksa 55 has some Romantic sonics, yeah, some tube alike colouration, some deepness, a vivid, alive sound stage, brigther trebles...i travel into our deepest dreams...to fly away following the music waves...the maximum sonics experience.

This is the difference.

We have to taste things to have sure.

regards,

Carlos

Default Thank you Colin.... i have been missing you as you have disappeared.


I am waiting more images from your modified Blameless.

Not Blameless anymore, this one you made is so modified that you can call it Colin S.

Carlos

While Hugh is around again... I hope you don't mind me asking, but how do you manage to run your amps without emitter resistors, especially the 100W models with parallel devices? Do you match output transistors in your kits?

Hi richie00boy,

The emitter resistors are there, they are mounted under the board. There are also a few other components mounted on the copper side, about 8 or 9 in total on the AKSA 55.
