Aleph-p 1.7 and Pass X2. which one sound better? is Aleph-p 1.7 already an X - amp ? How about the Bosoz ?

Hello Peter,
I never had a chance to compare the originals, but I have an AP1.7 clone, and a circuit which should be close to x2. see here:

The jfet stage sounds a bit more dynamicful, the AP1.7 more refined. It´s a question what you like? For rock I would prefer my jfet stage, for long jazz or classic listening an AP...

Best Regards
Adam

It is interesting info.
By the way, the rock music is always loud. And, what kind of classic music? E.g. quartett...?

Regards

I prefer always clear structures, independently which kind of the music.

I think Peter is refering to the first version of X2, not to the second one that we actually don't know the schematics.

I would be interested in Mr. Pass opinion what were the sonic diffrances between P 1.7 and X2 (first version). Unbalanced and balanced.

I´m curious too for comparison with both versions of X2.
