Jim you need to hear the LSA Warp-1. $1200 retail. I am not a dealer. I have one come over one day. A little killer.

  The Warp-1 one adds nothing to the sound.  What I mean by that is that no part of the frequency range stood out or changed. Just a clean,fast, quiet dynamic presentation. Speaker cables make a difference as one can now easily hear what they add or subtract.
  As always only one way to tell. Try one.

The best class D amps I've ever heard are those in the bottom of my Triton Reference speakers. From what I've heard and read, class D is relegated to base, not mids, not treble. Sorry guys, the class D in my Triton Reference in my speakers are also combined with a DSP processor and it sounds beyond bass belief of anything else I've heard. If your class D amp is doing it for you, well then stay with it.

If you're into full range class D, from what I read,  atmasphere class D are the best.

Be real. Consider the technology and electrical theory. Class A rules from a Sonic perspective. Granted there are other perspectives and advantages that class D brings to the table.

Best.
