I thought about a Reply but I decided on an Ignore instead.
The job of a power amp is to amplify the source , faithfully and linearly .. ideally to any desired power. Resampling via PWM cannot surely be a good first step? I need to read how/why class D is not sampled as claimed. Lots of people with big $$ invested in class A / tube power stages so naturally there would be latent resistance anyway.https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/atma-sphere-class-d-amazing?page=6
Interesting thread where the OP starts out stating the Atma-sphere Class D amps are amazing and then saying on page 6 that effectively they can't beat the mid-range of his MA-1 amps.
Separately on the same page a 300B user says the same thing,
The bass on them might be superior to my MA-1 but I use 600w class A/B on my magnepan's bass panels so I don't have to worry about that.
Nope, I'm sorry, this is exactly like the experience I had with a very high end solid state dac. Initially I preferred it over my triode (45) dac, but after about two weeks I realised that the DHT magic was missing, and I ended up selling that dac.
Power triodes all the way.
