Surely not the world's best, but i love the looks of my TPaudio CF, it's a transformer coupled amp made by a small italian manufacturer; Good for my low impedance cans.

I second the WA22!  It's marvelous in its simplicity and complexity.  It wasn't designed to be an over-the-top looking tube amp, but it makes a very bold statement.  The symmetry is stunning.

All the information you can find is on some italian forums unfortunately, actually when i said it's from a small manufacturer it was an overstatement, it's not available from any shop but you have to contact the builder directly; 
The model i have it's based on ECC82 and 12AT7 with transformer coupled output, is fitted with an alps pot and toroidal transformer, power section is on printed circuit board, signal path is point-to-point wired, he also manufactures an OTL variant for higher impedance cans.
 
The manufacturer's website is www.tpaudio.it, don't know if he is open to international transactions.
