My point exactly, system and preference. Danny was running a big Class A amp, does that mean all Class A amps are duff? We listen to a system, he was very happy with his. It doesn’t change the fact that some things work together some not so.
Sorry to hear you’ve had duff Class D’s, I’ve had a good few years from mine without problem, fingers crossed. A pre amp glitch caused a fuse to trip in one of the mono’s a couple of years ago and it was heartening to find the amp is still fully supported by the manufacturer. In my case it was nothing more than isolate it from the mains and plug it back in to reset the fuse.
