No. B&O doesn't "own" Class D topology.
They make the ICE Power branded amp modules, which they bought from the designer.
There are tons of Class D amplifiers on the market.
BTW, I am an early adopter of the XPA-1L amplifier.
To be totally accurate there has been 2 issues with the amp:
1. The Class A to A/B firmware switch over that Keith mentioned above.
2. A grounding issue that required a part(s) replacement.
My replacement amps were shipped on April 25th.
Yeah, it's been hard to be patient because this amp has so much promise for me.
Emotiva has handled this as all companies should which is to say excellent.
Take that for what it's worth.
There is more than one ID brand that has a very loyal following and its share of "fanboys" who take umbrage at criticism.
FWR, I've seen some pretty nasty anti-Emo threads on other forums that show just how ignorant\close-minded certain "audiofacistas" are.
But this is the internet. Grow a thick hide.
For me it's also easy to spot posters who have some sort of hard-on against a particular brand.
If you've been screwed, I can see why but as far as I've been able to tell Emotiva doesn't screw their customers.
It should seem obvious, there are so many vendors to buy from if you don't like Emotiva, buy something else.
