Welcome to AVS evapowah. Obviously you've been a "reader" for a while before you decided to become a contributing member.
Interesting you mention the IPR amplifier and it's design and function claims. We currently have a member who is employed by Peavey and has just agreed to supply an IPR 1600 to this forum for testing.
Stand by for more details as other members schedule and plan a way to make the tests and report the results on this forum.

Okay ........ hopefully by now everyone has read Eva's commentary at http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...150665&page=11
Reading her input on another forum, she definitely knows her stuff. That should make some on here feel a bit better about the wild claims some of us are making in regards to the technology.
Marketing says they will provide an IPR1600 for the Chuck test. As I noted previously, I have concerns about Chuck being able to measure class D accurately. However, it's unreasonable to expect someone who measures amps as a favor to forum members to spring for the $$ to buy input filters, mondo variacs, mondo AC mains wires and a day of residential electrician's time. The folks on here will have to accept that Chuck's results, best case, will be approximate due to no fault on anyone's side.
I don't know if Marketing will choose to ship one directly or to have the regional rep drop one off at Chuck's doorstep.
Tag, you're it
Possibly you'll have additional information to add about your similar project without releasing or compromising intellectual property. We would welcome that.
Maybe you, "evapowah" and "Sickneedhelp" could benefit each other and us members as well, by having a sort of "public" dialogue right here on the AVS forum in regards to the latest in amplification and DSP. Or maybe we could make a separate thread where both of you become our Class D gurus and do question and answer. There are lots of possibilities to bring enlightenment to the electronically challenged and/or interested.
