That certainly sounds promising... have you auditioned it for yourself? If so, how did you find the overall performance and sound?check out rogue audio they make a hybrid 8ohm 250watt , 4ohm 400watt class D integrated amp.
When I refer to "promising " I can think of just one brand. There are no Class D amplifiers that fully engaged me to the music. It nearly sounded Hi Fi right along...
However, I must say Jeff Rowland Design has come a long way. His would most probably be the only Class D amps I would consider, if I were to go that route. JR and his team have really pushed the boundaries into Class D operation and they've made some serious gear! His preamps are really tops as well and the pricing isn't too shabby.
I've compared Devialet, and two other amps (can't even remember the brand for crying out loud... goes to show they weren't upto par), the Devialet was superior all round. Then I got a chance to audition the JR Designs, and wow! That was in a totally different league! No comparison at all.
Sounds promising to see Rogue taking up Class D, I guess they need to expand their reach. Especially when most people don't have much space to fill their entire living area with audio gear, Class D makes sense I guess.
On my next travels in July, if I do come across the Rogue Class D gear, I'll make it a point to have a listen. Certainly something new to learn.
*forgot to mention * the speakers used during this demo / comparison on Class D amps, were the Ethos, Montis and 11A's.
