High end Class D amps?

Just an observation and a question. Are there 'high end' Class D amps out there that are just as good as Class A, A/B amps? I realize that's a sensitive question to some and I mean no disrespect---but whenever I see others' hifi systems on social media, all of the amps are A or A/B. There's always Pass, McIntosh, Moon, Luxman, Accuphase, etc. Where are the Class Ds? For folks out there that want more power for less efficient speakers and can't afford the uber expensive Class As, A/Bs, what is there to choose from that's close to those brands? Thanks

To my ears, Class A amp still beats out Class A/B and Class D amps.

I never cared for McIntosh Solid State Amps, IME their autoformer driven amps are no better than class D amps. Just like class D, the sound is clean as whistle but very bland.
