did you even read my post? he will NOT notice a difference in class d or class a/b. there is NO SUCH THING as an sq amp. if you dont believe me take the Richard Clark challenge. thats all i have to say about that.
did you even read my post?? sorry, i wanted to use that phrase too, since it seems to be popular in this thread.
yes i read your post, and i disagreed with it. that is why i re-wrote what see as correct
there is such a thing as an SQ amp. dont believe me? go find an amp with high THD compared to an amp with signifigantly lower THD ad tell me there isnt a difference. this isnt much of an issue because pretty much every new amp has a very low THD to begin with, but still, this makes my point.
also, HE may or may not notice a difference between a class A/B and a class D amp, but there is one. this is a pretty big topic amongst the car stereo forums even right now(especially amongst real audiophiles, but they will tellyou that even the RCA's can affect the SQ
). but if you take the time and learn what distinguishes the classes of amps, the electronic components used in each class, how the current flows through each class, and how the power is made in each class, you will see that there is quite a bit that will affect the SQ of the amp. different classes of amps simply asses the power in a different fashion, low and behold when it is done in a different way, the end result is not always going to be the same.
read up on Richard Clarkes test, it is not as flawless as you might think, and it is also rather inconclusive
. richard clarke is a very smart man, but him and his test do not write the laws of audio
edit: either way, Xmann has already gotten the info he needs to make his decision, so this thread is kinda dead anyways
