I have a pile of stuff that pushes out squiggly waveforms from smaller squiggly waveforms that sometimes come from 1's and 0's.
It's wonderful to behold as long as you don't let the magic smoke out.

Life is short! Enjoy the music while it plays, when it stops, there might be a chair for you...or  maybe not.

I'm thinking hard. They would be my first foray into Class D. Am using a Yaqin tube integrated (as a power amp) with the Emotiva BasX PT-100 pre, so the Class D will be a change.

Not saying Class D is bad. they are vastly different sounding compared to Class A/AB. now comparing to Tube, the most obvious difference would be you lose that warm soul feeling you always have.
so it depends on your expectations.

Thanks. I won't be selling off the Yaqin so quickly then. 3kg per channel! Boggles the mind!

I'm in touch with Emotiva to ship direct to Singapore. They are receptive, since it isn't yet available on Amazon, and I think the local distributor.
