If you don't like the Tripath chips, don't read the Tripath threads.

What? We need separate forums for pentodes and triodes, too?

I thought because of UCD the class-d section came in to existence but no doubt later it became littered with chips

Well you could be right. The Class-D forum was brand new when I joined.
Tripath amps are chip amps, for sure. But I'm not sure the chip amp fans want the class-d chips over on their side.

Anyway this is the right place for all class-d because much of it shares common features.
Good place for those who wish to go on to more complicated designs to get a start. Or just be happy with the chips.

I'm just beating the behive with a stick, enjoying all the buzzing. If the bees start swarming I'll go jump in the lake!

Cant we have a seperate section for advanced class-D discussion in main class-D forum, it will not do anything to chip amps also. Its just that many valuable threads vanish when loads of t-amp thread surface on the main window.

The moderation team don't see it as a problem. The Class-D forum isn't that busy.

Its not a problem for moderation team, but its a problem for those who are interested more into non chip amp technical discussions, because threads vanish and decorum ceases.

I can't say that I see any harm in going the other way, and giving discrete Class D amps a subforum.

The original thread that got class-d it's own forum to begin with......

Lobbying for a Class D Forum

And the previous attempt at a revolt by the class-d elitists......

Forum for issues related to the design of Class D amplifiers

Oh, please, like you can't follow a thread if you have to scroll to second page? If that's the case, there's the subscribe button.

Class T amps, or Tripath amps, aren't all strictly chip amps in the sense that it contains output transitors. Many are driver chips, and even chip sets. So by that definition should all class D amps that include integrated circuits of any kind also be moved? Furthermore, while we're at it why not move all threads about modules and modifications as well, like those on UcD, IcePower etc etc.

Then you can have your 3 thread forum all to yourself.
