Default Which class D is the best

Hi,
I'm using CAV FI-EX loudspeakers 6 ohm and 86 db (big speakers with 4 drivers). These speakers are very hard to drive.
I'm looking for a good class D power amplifier kit that can boost these speakers (minimum 200 watt in 8 ohm)
1. Which are the best class D chip / kit?
2. Which are the most cost effective chip / kit?
Thanks

classaudio-usa, thanks for the answer
I saw your products as far as I remember I saw in documents that you talked about the "warm sound". Since I'm looking for a very details sound and emphasized tweeter, I wonder if this is what I'm looking for?!

Yes, our amps are very detailed. When I talk about a nice warm sound, I mean it's a very clean detailed sound. You can't imagine how dead quiet these amps are, and you will hear details you never heard before in other amps. If you want a more emphasized tweeter, I think you might prefer our amps with the TI based chips like our 600W amp with the TAS5630 chip. These have a little brighter sound in my opinion, and probably exactly what you're looking for. Also, more clean power than you should ever need.

A better word for the Classdaudio sound is 'transparent'. It completely shows up all the strength and weaknesses of your system. Nowadays I believe whenever the word 'warm' is used people automatically think tubes and 2nd order distortion, etc. or that details and transparency are lacking. This is not the case. And certainly not the case w/ these amps. Tom's right, they are very very clean and quiet. I have the IR 250w and highly recommend it. And when you see the toroid it comes with, you know they mean business!

Also, when talking about these amps note that we're talking stock. I dug the TK2050 but it's nice to put an amp together and not have to play Operation with all kinds of compenents and tricky soldering to get it to sound good. The Classdaudio are plug and play.

That said, I replaced the output filter caps and it made a great amp, even greater.

Can't recommend this amp enough.

Out of the ones I've heard..
Best sound: Hypex UcD HG HxR modules
Best value for money: Tripath amps (2050 if you don't need much power and 3020 if you do need the extra watts).
