Alternative class A amps to the Bryston 4B

Can anyone suggest an amp that's comparable to the Bryston 4B (250 - 300wpc with similarly low distortion etc.) to drive my PMC TB2s+ speakers and XB1 sub.

Thanks.

I don't know what he's comparing, or whether he's considering a new SST or just dropping the "4B" as a range-finder.

wouldn't infer likes, preferences etc, nor aesthetics.

Plus, the Pass has blue LEDs on it and a round meter. How could he not consider it?

I thought by the "other than 4B" that price was a criteria.


And yeah the blue light rocks.
