Another pair of monobloc J's lives. First impressions are that SQ is little different from my reference class D and class AB. I will put some hours on it and report back soon

Will begin assembly of an Aleph J soon as a stereo amp, so am interested in hearing how they work out for others.

May I ask the details of your reference Class D & AB amps?

Beginning to wonder about getting a more efficient amp for summer use that can rival a Pass Class A for SQ, and it would have to be close, or I'll just pay the AC bill difference.

The AB is the Pink Fish Media Hackernap design which is thought to be better than the Naim NAP250 and the class D is the Connex but I have auditioned a borrowed Hypex in my system with little difference. Look up the Connex, good value for money, cool and small

I would endorse a previous contributor and recommend checking every component before soldering; component removal with plated through holes is a pain. I built mine into the mini dissappente boxes in 3U height and the heatsink gets to 42c after an hour or so

Connex website shows several Class D products.
Would you specify the one you're using, please?

CxD500 with SMPS600R power supply (1 per channel) - if my memory is correct. No heat worth talking about (unlike the class A's !), fully protected and only a couple of hours to assemble - not really a DIY project except for the case
