Cool What sounds better than Hiraga?

Ok guys,

I know it's very subjective, but I would like to start a new build. I am the happy owner of a Hiraga 30 Watt Class A amplifier. It sounds so sweet! I honestly don't know what could compare or sound even better than the one I built.

But, I must keep going The DIY-er in me is shouting! I just do not want to build something that sounds mediocre. I want to built something that will sound better and sweeter than my Hiraga.

I use it with the DCB1 preamp(Salas) whitch is slightly hotrodded(200mA)

So, I need some expert input from all you DIY-ers I hope you guys can convince me to build something awesome

My soldering station is ready to come out of hiding

Have you built any of the Pass First Watt class A amps? The F6 is good,
and you probably have most of the parts already.

The Pass amps seem the way to go. Similar enough in philosophy to make you happy, but maybe different enough to please you.

Ah ok, so Pass is the way to go. I was wondering about those. The F6 looks like it is worth a try. Any other ideas?

Already some are using Cree parts in it.

Ya, I would definitely recommend the F6. I think it has a very "sweet" sound to it.

For class A amplifier I vote for Aleph J.
For class AC amplifier I vote for DOGC-H by Dr. Borivoje Jagodic. (It is like lower current Aleph with added BJT current booster).
