Well, I don't agree with him either. I think the Super-T sounds marvelous on big horns as long as you remember that you only have one good watt, and I still think it's one the best things I've ever heard for those late night listening sessions. I had a three channel Hypex amp built for me last year using the UcD180AD, and it was freaking awesome on the Klipschorns with a Heresy center. It's one of those pieces I regretted selling, but the center channel wasn't practical in my room, and since so much of my listening was late at night I just didn't need the three channels or the extra watts. It's a clean, open, natural sound with a minimum of grain or hash, and that's more than you can say for a lot of solid state. It doesn't bloom or project like good tube gear does, but hey, cheap tube gear doesn't bloom or project like good tube gear either!
Spot on, Dean. I would also add the Trends to the list.
Certain Class D sounds surprisingly good on horns so long as you don't try to do too much with any given unit.
