Class D Audio Power Amp for front stage?

Good day, all
I’ve used class a/b audio power amp for running a front stage... when i read a note Class D Audio Amplifier Overview and DIY Example, i wonder can class d do just as well? if so what are your recommendations for class d amplifiers that are almost as good and can pass SQ qualifications?

Best regard.

    There is about a 5% genetic difference between apes and men …but that difference is the difference between throwing your own poo when you are annoyed …and Einstein, Shakespeare and Miss January.

    Are you sure that's Class D? What chipset are they using?
    Wonder if it uses ICEpower, Hypex, or one of TI's modules...
    is there a Bruno Putzeys signature model available?

  • Thank you for replies. :)
    Power, good clean power is all any front stage needs and it doesn't care where it comes from... I run huge dinosaur a/b amps because I have plenty of space to pull it off. If I didn't have the space, I would definitely be looking at a small footprint class D amplifier.
