RE: 20-30Watts Class A nominations apart from Aleph for pure sound

You could search HiFi Shark for the word: Rawson

I owned an Aleph J clone years ago and it sounded good, but ran hot. The one I had looked pretty good too, although I've seen some rough ones. Since these are DIY they should probably be checked out by a competent tech before using. Amps that run that hot may require maintenance sooner. Adjust your offer accordingly. I sold mine because a few times I forgot to turn it off before going to bed and IMHO this should be avoided because they run the hottest when idling. I prefer amps that I would feel comfortable leaving on all the time.

Using a Bryston 2B-LP Pro now and would recommend a used but newish 2B over the Rawson clone. Better build quality, runs cooler, more power, better warranty, etc.
