Well, I've been tracking these things for a few years and they are becoming more an more popular. Besides the smaller assemblers like D-Sonic, Acoustic Reality and Red Dragon the list of companies using them continues to grow; Jeff Rowland, Bel-Canto, PS Audio and Rotel come to mind and I'm sure there are others. The Rotel 1077 is quite popular and some say that it sounds better than their 1091 and 1092 which use the 1000ASP. Pioneer looks as though they will be using ICEpower in their upcoming flagship. And let's not forget the inventor of these modules B&O - have you seen the price of some of their stuff?
Why aren't they more popular? I have three theories; 1.) Size, while they are relatively small compared to conventional amps they are quite a bit larger than their Tripath, Equibit and UcD counterparts which are finding their way into into more and more products like the Panasonic XR series.
2). Cost, an educated guess based on what I could have purchased a raw 1000ASP module for would put OEM purchase price at around $200 to $250 per module or channel - that's not cheap at that level, $1400 just for the guts of a seven channel amp then you've got to add in the rest of the stuff; casing, connectors, U/L certification, packaging, storage, sales and distribution..... Gets up there pretty fast.
3). Macho man syndrome - if it's not the size of a Hummer it can't be any good!!
The only possible downside to these amps is what is called digital switching noise - this will only affect other components upstream from the amp and only those that are not IMO properly designed to reject RMI/EFI. (probably why the likes of Bel Canto uses ferrite chokes on the input and output wiring.) I had both the 500 ASP and 1000 ASP amps in my system and they didn't affect anything at all and were dead silent. The sound was simply superb.
