Competitive class D amp suggestions

Two vs four subwoofers for music playback
At least one of your subs should be a Velodyne dd+ so you can dial in perfect bass response at your main listening position at all levels. Preferably a 15".  :-)  
Can a great system make a mediocre recording sound good?
