Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

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

It's too bad about a limited budget because the best sounding higher power class A of all time is a Harman Kardon Citation 2 with the McShane mods IMHO.If you have the ability to rebuild it yourself,you can save lots of money. The amp runs about 1200usd in so so stock condition but these babies are an absolute marvel when recapped. If you are looking for purity,this amp is it AFAIC. If you want SS,I like the Nelson Pass Designed Threshold and my SA2 sounds really nice but it runs as warm as my tube amps do.
