1. AKSA Heard but not built one. If I ever buy an amp it will be one of these.
2. Gainclone. Sub amp only but is well behaved.
Best-ever T/S parameter spreadsheet.

yes, you're right

but when you never hear something about fish you ever will order one in the shop. Even when the first fish you eat tastes bad.

this thread is for people, who dont know that there are hiragas, zenV4`s and JLH`s.

Hi Ralf,

I feel that these amps may sound nice, but since I'm happy with my not very effecient speakers (88dB) i need more power then they are able to deliver.

The quality af an amp is (for me) not only how it sounds, but also the outputlevel and power consumption.....I dislike having an amp blasting away using 1kW just to be able to listen to music or enjoy a movie.

Therefore I look for the (to me) best sounding amp using non Class A technology.

This quest however is one of trial and error, meaning that people will be going through alot of amps before finding their favorite.

We all have different needs when we look for amps. So no reason to try and force peoples choice

All the best from Denmark

Default Any Class, no matter

I do not see any body is forcing anything.. the thread just ask DIYers to post their personal preference of the power amplifers that one has built with their bare hands.
Not commercial products...

If you have built/clone a Byston class AB amp then list it it does not has to be a classA amp.


PS. It will be interesting to see how many people like fish and chips and how many people prefer curry chicken
monkeys brain anyone?

Increased bias will not lower distortion, and (anecdotally) will not improve the sound.....
Commie/pinko community - cheez, I thought you lot died out with improved education. You can't take anything for granted anymore.

Lordy Jan....

As a self confessed tree hugger, the 'commie/pinko' appelation was intended facetiously, a self mockery that obviously put your knickers in a twist. If it offended your sensibilities, I sincerely apologize.

Living in NYC, we have the highest electrical rates in the States. I find Hugh's design to be absolutely wonderful, and its low power consuption to be an added bonus
