GaN-based Class D power amps


The use of GaN-based power transistor tech is now emerging for Class D audio power amplifiers. Seems appropriate to devote a forum thread to this topic. At least 3 companies have commercial class D amps in their books:

Merrill Audio, with their model Element 118 ($36k per monoblock, 400 W into 8 ohms, 800W into 4 ohms), Element 116 ($22k per monoblock, 300 W into 8 ohms, 600W into 4 ohms) and Element 114 (coming soon).

ADG Productions, with their Vivace Class D amp ($15k per monoblock pair, 100W into 4 ohms). (The designer emailed me indicating he has another product in the pipeline.)

Technics SE-R1 Class D stereo amp ($17k per stereo amp, 150WPC into 8 ohms, 300WPC into 4 ohms)

Technics also has a lower priced GaN-based class D integrated amp in their catalog:

Anyone listened to or own any of these amps?

Again, who cares who is right? Let George have the last word or this will go on forever.  Some people want to learn, some want to argue.  Decide not to argue.  Let it go.  Peace.

1) No, that is a pulse train with infinite bandwidth and perfect phase. It's not reality.

2) That is a 10Khz square wave and actually looks quite good. You don't know for certain that's a phase shift issues without looking at the phase shift (in time!) at harmonics at 30Khz, 50Khz, 70Khz, and given the module bandwidth that is going to cause slew issues.

I have designed quite a few audio products, commercial acoustic spaces, have patents in the field, published papers and have a few related degrees. I have shown I understand the tech, can talk in details without hand waving, and don't need to quote others words.

... And, I am still waiting for your justification for why the square wave I posted, which is a very very good 1Khz square wave, is possible if there are such big phase issues?
Why ricevs? To prevent people from being mislead.
