In the past a quality pair of speakers needed amplification costing as much or more to get the best sound out of them, do you guys thing class D and more specifically D-Sonic have the sound quality to throw that old rule out ? would Revel salon v1 driven by a pair of m-1500 monos sound as good as a ML 433? Is class D shortcomings of omission? Sibilance is the hardest distortion to ignore and the most prevalent in affordable audio. Hm
Or, save your self a few hundred and get the 2 x 1500w Stereo version?
Yes, class D amps have really evolved. I'm extremely pleased with the performance of my D-Sonic. I am the kind of person though that doesn't easily detect differences among amps and receivers, etc. Speakers, that's another story - and sounds like you've got some nice speakers. Sure, a lot of folks do indicate they can detect differences between amps, but best I can tell, the most obvious difference comes from tubes vs. solid state. Among solid states and well-designed amps, really not sure if people are hearing differences or if you can chalk that up to psycho-acoustics.
Myself, I prefer and required minimalism and efficiency, not a space heaters. I'm not slamming other designs that are obviously excellent quality and do what they are made to do, but I needed an amp with specific fitment requirements for my particular set up, enclosed AV cabinet, tight. D-Sonic was the answer in features, quality, size, and efficiency.
You can try the amp out, and if not happy, return it - granted, there is a fee, but D-Sonic is a small company. Dennis is great by the way, what was already stated - excellent customer service.
