I'll have to read the technical description carefully, and rearrange it into paragraphs, to get the hang of what they are saying. I wonder what the Doc would say about parallel output drive circuits and output transistors?

Does it really matter what Richard might have thought ?

If it has a good sound who cares ?

It 'sounds' just fine and the 'sound' changes with the recordings played through it, so it does the job well enough I reckon.
Do you write for What Hifi ?? :)

I am sure Richard would have been looking to make it better.

Probably, but manufacturers normally have a price point in mind, so that usually dictates what can be done.

Look at NVA and the difference between the cheapest and most expensive amps.

PS I apologise to DQ for replying to posts that were not made by him. :lol:

Paralleling output devices is hardly new, or controversial.

The power supply is the only difference.

Plus bigger heatsinks as well. :)
