GaN-based Class D power amps
No one cares who did what with GaNs except you as you want to appear as some super expert who knows everything......but really you know nothing about how  GaNs or Mosfets sound used as output devices as you only read stuff and then make up opinion... 
Tekton Design MOAB
If I were buying a pair of Moabs I would have Eric install longer better wires (that I would send him) inside and run all the wires outside to his stock xover. Then, in my own time, I would upgrade every single part of the xover..and mount it on s... 
GaN-based Class D power amps
Who cares when or who made or used these things first!  Let's get off our egos. Talk about the GaN amps you have heard.....the only thing that matters. 
GaN-based Class D power amps
The upper mids and highs are really great on my amps.  Noticeably better than the 1meg bandwidth (no phase shift in the audio band) Job 225 amp.  Sorry, George......another opinion (based on zero listening) shot down.  BTW, I have strong reason to...

The GaN amp is not my design.  Tweak 1 has not mentioned who is making it.

Two of my audio friends have used the Tortuga LDR thang and both find the Truth preamp much better.  The Truth is a zero feedback buffer, photo cell attenuator and another zero feedback buffer on the output.  There is lots of info on the Truth on ...

Why is this thread any different from any other thread on this forum where people who own a product comment on it?  Yes, some of my customers are wordy and like to talk.  All they are doing is sharing their experience.  I think you just don't like...

"is wrong"......"should know better".... aren't we judgmental!  There are no absolutes in this game.  I am not "defending" my amp.  It speaks for itself.  You cannot speak to what others hear.  Others experience is just as valid as yours.  There a...

how about intimating......that is what I meant.....or is it.....he he?  . I like the fact that I wrote that though.....makes you think.

Brewmasterdon,So, you have never received an amp or whatever that cold unburned in sounded better than your totally burned in piece? Are you saying it is "common knowledge" that Class D requires hundreds of hours to sound any good at all? This is ...

I guess you cannot read.  It says 400K switching frequency twice on the website.....this is even less than most mosfet based amps. 
Open Baffle vs Box
Totally wrong.   The back wave can cancel some response of the front wave (less output) if the baffle is narrow and the frequencies are low.  To get low bass you need a big baffle, large woofs or servo woofs, Distort?  No way.  Open baffle speaker...

How much is the GaN amp going to retail for? 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
If the $4.5K Moab sounds that good stock......just imagine how much better it would sound if you used great xover parts, wiring, internal damping, driver damping and felting around all the tweets ($1000+) and hardwired it!!!!!! Yikes! Now how abou... 
What Class D amps will drive a 2 ohm load
This is so weird.  We have a guy here who thinks that one thing he makes up means something.  No one else would make up such a story.  You don't need double the wattage into 2 ohms to drive a 2 ohm load.  All you need is an amp that is stable into...
