speakers on pallet
Von Schweikert ships with drivers up two on a pallet and several pair have traveled across country to me that way no problem imprtant to use a reputable freight company - they use Pilot 
Class D Technology
Nuforce/Nuprime appoaches Class D differently and is most appropriately called an analogue switching amplifier. I have tried many class D and the Nuforce/Nuprime designs beat them all plus all Class A and AB that I have listened to. They are the m... 
I NEED AN AMP!! BUT WHAT?? HELP PLEASE!!

Tinnitus worries...
