Starke Sound

Good evening Audiogon Community !

I’ve been looking into this company’s 4-channel AD.430 to power the rear and center speakers of my MCH music set up.   Alternatively,  I could swap my current Emotiva XPA DR-2 GEN 3 to the rear and have the  Starke handle front right, left and center duty.

Does anyone have direct experience with their Class D amps ?   The few reviews I’ve come across are very positive.   Personally, I’m kind of concerned that after two email inquiries through their website, I have not received a reply to a very basic inquiry.   I was ready to pull the trigger and place through their website, but the lack of response is causing me to pause.

Looking forward to your comments
That’s surprising. When I recently contacted them, they replied the same day - on a weekend no less. In subsequent followup email, I got a personal reply from the founder/owner himself. That said, a recent followup inquiry has not yet been answered - although it was over this past weekend. Given their very liberal 30 day in home trial (shipping both ways! - that clinched it for me), I figured it was just best to pull the trigger at the sale price of $999 and try it. Just finished buying.

That all said, I was influenced by a very glowing post (and PM) by boomerbillone. Look for it/them.
Thanks for your reply.  Glad you got a quick response from Starke Sound and hope you enjoy your new amp.   Let us know how that goes! I reached out through the contact page - will try calling.   With the COVID situation, businesses have plenty of challenges and responses times may suffer.

I’ll look up the home trial po;icy - not sure if applicable to sales to Canada where I live.   I’ll definitively look for boomerbillone’s post.
