    Nelson Pass Aleph J

    Dipole H frame woofers & 2 different top hats. I suppose the 45's performance would have been better with more sensitive speakers. Love seats not there anymore. As a matter of fact my wife bought new couches a while back

    Well heck. I think the 45's are headed back to the closet. The Aleph J does everything the 45's do and in spades. It makes it all sound very easy where as the tubes struggle at times. Up next to tubes with a bit more oomph such as 300b's it may be a different story. 45's might also be a real...

    Nelson Pass Aleph J

    Pulled that rectifier tube. It wasn't up to the task. Sounded was distorted and really apparent with female vocals. 5V4 g. I should go in and reset voltage on the 5842'a and check bias again.

    And back to the Electra Print iron with some good old fashion 45's. You don't need to spend $$$$ on tubes to get that good ol' 45 sound. This time with a fancy rectifier tube What I've discovered is the 45's seem to be more detailed than a 2a3. That tuby feeling isn't as prevalent. Great...

    Nelson Pass Aleph J

    5 hours run time. Very very nice sound's coming through here. It's got speed, dynamics and clarity. Is it better than the Aleph J. That's hard to say. It doesn't take a back seat to it though. Today I will bias some real 45's and pull these overgrown EML's out. This amp reminds me of the...

    This is a tough ack to follow. EML 45's, excellent quality Electra Print iron. It's just warming up and I'm glad I drug it off the shelf. More to come.

    Deck looks great. PS mod is on the list of to do's. From scratch of course. And you've ditched the strobe.

    My final Analog frontier. The Step Up Transformer.

    MM on the left, mc on the right. If I'm not mistaken the gain stage is everything forward of those 4 AD797 OPA's. Those are the 4 in Para ell, just inboard of those red 4 red caps. This version also has a line stage option. Actually all versions do.

    My final Analog frontier. The Step Up Transformer.

    You can plug the deck into the SUT and then go straight thru to the amp . Do you hear sound. I doubt it. You still need some kind of power, like a phono stage of some sort.
