I'm wondering if I want to pull the trigger on a 4x400 M3a model in the smaller chassis (I believe Dennis can make these). Or - wait and get a 4x200 model (or maybe it's 4x250) in the smaller/new chassis when it comes out.
My JBL SCS8 Atmos speakers. Currently their being driven by 2 different Crown XLS amps. 4 speakers total.What do you want to drive with it? I might ask Dennis if he could reveal the price difference between the 400 vs. 200, and if it is significant, maybe wait? Let's face it, 400 watts is a lot of power. BUT if the price isn't too, too different, I'd get the 400 watt unit, but I'm an overkill kinda guy. Don't know why?

Ah, well, since they can handle 250 watts (not that you need it...???), I'd be inclined to go with the 400 watt amp, even though you'll not use this much power, you'll have plenty on tap. I think the other one is going to be 200 watts, and I'm guessing that'd be plenty for you too, but like I said, overkill....
"the former amps must have been "real crap""You noticed a "huge" difference between power amps ?
What has that to do with "not being a audiophile" ? Are there differences only for "audiophiles" to be heard ? Are you trying to disqualify your own judgement on purpose ?
If there are "huge" differences between power amps, where - normally and usually - barely any differences can be heard between different units anyway, because they are at least a magnitude less than those owed to speakers and room acoustics either the former amps must have been "real crap" or you are bluntly overstating any differences, if there are really any. How did you test for those differences ???
Are you trying to promote this product by just inventing non-existing specifications on a purely "subjective basis" Come one, you can do better, don't you
Excellent! Look forward to your reporting back on how things go with the amp!Just joined the D-Sonic family. Bought a M3a-1200 3 from a forum member, which should get here sometime next week. Will be powering my Legacy Audio Silhouettes front stage with it. It’s my first foray into external amplification and I’m quite excited by the potential improvement the D-Sonic will bring over my Denon X4400H!
I asked Dennis about this around a week ago. He's still working on the prototype and is trying to finish this up in the next week or so. A bit delayed as he's been deluged with orders.Any word on the status of the lower power, lower price D-Sonic amps?
Nice review, and glad you like the new amp! Definitely give us an update when you get the new speakers installed! 😁Overall i'm very satisfied with the M3A-6100-7 - it really surprised me with so big difference in listening experience that i can recommend D-Sonic amplifiers to everybody. Great build, amazing sound quality, infinite power. Cannot even imagine when i will have a chance to hook it up with 3x215RTs in the front (which i hope will arrive soon) and then as a next step 4x110HT for surrounds - then i will be able to use its all power!
Great amp and i hope it will last for a long time - i don't think to change it ever!
