What this country needs is a good 5-watt amplifier

Not much! I run mine with an SE 45 amp ... a whopping 1.5W per channel and I can make your ears bleed!

If you liked Aleph J, just go for it.
Aleph has a special sound that I have not heard from any other amps.

KH deserves better than ACA, even if used in multiamp scheme

of amps available now in kit form , there is broad choice - projects either from Store or from members

I'm with ZM. I think the m2 has the right character. I know we are talking oranges and tangerines, but I use Forte II and haven't itched to change amps since the M2.

Gotta make it quiet though.

I used to run an Aleph J on my Khorns and it sounded good but it was not very dynamic and didn't do them justice on the bottom end. The J is the only Pass amp I have so I cannot compare to others. Right now I use a Tubelab TSE running CX345's and it sounds phenomenal! My next venture is an F7 after reading the article I posted. I have the lat FETs and a PCB design done just need to order a chassis ...

My room il about 16 m.
I do not need a lot of power, i think 25 W to 30 W would be enought.

of A class projects available in this moment , I can write down this list :

as best - SissySIT , then Babelfish M25 , then M25x , then Aleph J (or Babelfish J as easier to do) , then ACA

if possible - you can try finding second hand EAR 859 - my fave commercial tube amp - not just sounding good but construction worthy of T.dP. fame

quite possible to find one no costing more than parts for properly made Papamp nowadays , except in case that you already have shelves full with parts
