Like Luka said, jump on it. I was astonished as to how much bigger everything was after replacing a Parasound A21, which in its own right is a kick ass amp, too. The D-Sonic I have is an older model, maybe 6 or 7 years old, at close to 600wpc, which you can hear and feel right out of the box. The low level detail is pretty amazing as well. Power to boot. Hope you get one and love it.

I have recently installed the D-Sonics M3a-1500M monoblocks driving Maggie 3.7i's. Using a McIntosh C2300 tube amp and I am very pleased with the results. Great soundstage, great balance top to bottom and nice detailed sonic images with in the sound stage. These punch way above their weight. I have about 400 hours on them and couldn't be happier. At some point I will move them into my reference system and see how they stack up to my McIntosh MC601's. From what I hear so far I suspect they will do very well. Their size makes them so easy to work with....a pair of monoblocks can easily fit on one shelf in almost any rack. Class D amps from D-Sonics are definitely worth looking into. Class D is here to stay.
D-Sonics are cheap at $1k, Even better were the Red Dragon M500’s at S799 same Class-D module. At least they didn’t hide what they modules use last pic in the D-Sonic module." tricked up $100 Sanway subwoofer modules, that I saw for sale on Alibaba.

Thanks for all the replies to date. Have not yet pulled the plug as there is so much controversy regarding class D but the more information from actual users I get the more learned I become. It's all useful.
Can anyone explain to me why GaN based class D is so much pricier than Pascal etc. It makes no sense to me other than its faster switching capability but that hardly warrants the cost.
