Default Whats the best Class D / T Amp?

Hi All

So im gonna start a new power amplifier project! I have B&W DM683 speakers that are quite demanding, specially since they go down to 2,6 ohms on certain frequencys.

What im after is the "best" sounding class D or Class T amp diy kit! thats affordable. The reason i am asking you guys is beause there are many many kits out there and many opinions. I know that the word "best" is very individual, but please come with your expirience or knowledge!

I have been checking out a few amplifiers like:
SDS-258 Amplifier By ClassDaudio.com
IRS2092 Stereo Amplifier By Connexelectronic
TA3020 Audio Amplifier v3d By Connnexelectronic

These are just a few i have been looking at. If you know any other great sounding amps please do TEll!

I sendt an email to connexelectronic asking him what his best sounding ampmodul he sold was. and he said that his "Class A/B 500W LME49810" was the one he thought sounded the "best". Anyone heard this amp?

So anybody have an opininon?

Greetings and thanks in advanced
Jørgen Solvik

I have designed class d and class ab amps and find it hard to tell the difference.

I would probably go for a irs2092 based amp as that is what I use mainly.

How about ICEpower? I know it is no comparison to the 683, but I have the 125asx2 in stereo mode for my B&W CDM1. This is a very fine combination. With the CDM7 of a friend it works equally well. No clue about the impedace plot of those though...

I know hypex has an awsome reputation! And their new Ncores is maby some of the best class D. But it also costs alot of money!!

I am angeling my question to the middle price range. THere are many chinese kits, but theres little information on how they sound.

@Joschl i have heard Icepower (Norwegian brand "Midgard Audio" with B&O 1000asp modul), i know its good, maby a little "flat" for my taste. But i wanted to try something new.

I tried Rotels Icepower amplifier with 2x250 watts in 8ohm. And it started clipping the when i turned the volume up. So dont have the best impression of B&O ice power.

also try sinewave. They can be found at AliExpress - Buy directly from China They have several modules, alsp capable og 1 ohm loads.

This one is very versatile and good price too, but you have to buy 5 pcs, so hope you have some friends with same hobby.

Buy tas5630 class D 4 channel, 1200W, Easy assemble, 4CHANNEL 1200W DUAL TAS5630 High Field CLASS D Amp V1.1 at Aliexpress.com

Best: Hypex Ncore
Second best: Hypex UcD HG with HxR (sjekk bruktmarkedet i Norge nå!)
Close to UcD with a bit of warmth and probably more forgiving: Abletec ALCO300

The best I've heard is the NuForce (this is my humble opinion) but if you want to experience the sound of a well made ​​amp with expensive equipment, then ask a couple of demo samples (free money for 30 days) at AudioPower. SDA-400 high-res module. I know also, is quiet at 2R (28A max output)
