Some people has tried regulated PSUs but switching ones, not linear. You will ruin the high efficiency of a Class-D using a regulated linear PSU.

Why will I ruin the effeciency of the modules by using a regulatet supply?.....is that not just a question of making the regulated supply able to deliver the 20 amps that UCD modules are limited to?

Well, in a linear regulated PSU, you need a raw DC voltage above the regulated value. Let's say that, in order to have some margin, you need above 10-15V over the required output. Any current drawn by the amplifier, multiplied by that difference will becompe power dissipated in the pass devices (transistors, typically) of your regulated PSU.

Unless you use a capacitance multiplier, which is kind of semi-regulated. Then you can have less voltage drop in the regulator itself.
