Back from the dead for my tale of woe.
I have Paradigm Studios for my speakers and a Sub 1. I had my Marantz AV8801 hooked to 2 Rotel RMB-1095's for my 9.1 system. Been happy with it for several years. I recently put the amps on a dedicated 20 amp circuit and was surprised at the sound improvement. Noticeable. I did not expect that. Just did it on a lark. Of course that got me to thinking about different amps. Researched a lot. Short list was Anthem A5, Parasound Halo A51, Classe Sigma AMP5, and Rotels offering. Don't remember the thread I was in but they mentioned buying D-Sonic and loving it. Started looking at class D amps. Settled on D-Sonic basically just from word of mouth/forum. Talked to Dennis a few times, got the M3-2800-7 (7 channel 400w) and put everything but the heights on it. The heights I kept on one RMB-1095. The word clearer comes to mind. The speakers on the M3 were clearer than when on the RMB-1095. Did Audyssey XT32 Friday night last week, watched a couple hours of TV Saturday, then rented movies to give my system a workout Sunday. At the 1 hour 30 minute point there was a loud crackle from my speakers, a flash of light from inside the M3, and an electrical smell in the air. Being a Master of the Obvious I immediately knew something was wrong. I had lost the center, surround back left, and back left channels. Even though it was 830pm on a Sunday in Ohio I called Dennis who made me feel very special by telling me that is the first time he's heard that happening. I'd rather be first at other things though. My bad unit and a new one are currently passing each other somewhere, and I should get the new unit tomorrow.
I don't want anyone to think I'm writing this to warn people away from D-Sonic. Quite the opposite. All equipment has the potential to fail, and it is what happens when that does that can make or break a company. As stated in other parts of this thread, Dennis makes himself available to answer all kinds of questions and has good customer service. And he has a good product that I can't wait to get back in my system tomorrow.
If I find out what went wrong I will post here again.
