Default Tripath Recommendations for Start-up

All,

As a start-up business, we're seeking guidance and recommendations regarding Tripath amps for a new product similar to the JoeyRoth speakers which received a great deal of attention in design-related circles (See the the 6 Moons article for a more informative critique after his site).

Where we will differ is in the possible use of a bi-amp set up, and in providing some degree of tone control as well. We must source a quality amp for our speakers that is on a par with or preferably exceeds that of the 2024 Tripath in Roth's offering. Which leads to the next issue...

All the Tripaths I'm coming across are without tone controls except for the Lapai, the quality of which I'm highly dubious about. How involved would it be to add a level of tone control to a high quality tripath-style amp?

Thank you for your comments in advance,
Luca

Look up Baxandall tone control circuits there are hundreds on the internet.
It involves a couple of pots and a few resistors/capacitors and a high quality op-amp.

There are a massive number of companies making audio equipment.
The only way to make money is to specialise.

Rather than business advice, we're seeking guidance and recommendations pertaining to Tripaths similar to the 2024 used in the JoeyRoth speakers (link above). Looking currently at Baxandall circuits (thanks) and audioconnexion offerings.
