I have heard the Aleph 1.2 and Aleph 5 as well as own an Aleph 4. The Aleph amps are known for having a laid back, forgiving, mellow sound with great extension at the frequency extremes. They are not the last word in bass slam or dynamics, but have a very refined, detailed sound with broad soundstage and excellent separation between instruments. IMO, these are among the finest amps sold regardless of price. I would say that the Aleph 1.2 is no exception to the characteristics of the other Alephs. Perhaps you heard the Alephs with cool sounding speakers or equipment?
