Why the TPA3100D2 other than the fact a boutique audio shop decided it would provide them a killer profit margin?

I think effort would be much better spent on a project for the new TPA3116D2.

The TBI has been out since 2008 with no notice until a few months ago. Please explain the killer profit margin on that.

If someone has actually heard the 3116D2, it would be great to hear thoughts on it. You've stated that you don't believe there's much difference between amps anyway, so what's the difference?

A difference in sound (or lack there of) is not on my list of reasons for the suggestion.

You might be right. That dates from May, 2012 while the other one 2010.

In any case, for anyone who wants to google, the new 2012 chips...

TPA3130D2 15 watts
TPA3118D2 30 watts
TPA3116D2 50 watts

Well the eval boards are only $149 ea. If someone wants to buy them and compare, that would be great. Certainly not about to go into hypothetical posting about an amp I have never heard. I'll leave that to others.

Hi they indeed refuse to sell outside Russia....but you mention a letter which indicates you work for that company ? Couldn't you make an exception for once if the order will be prepaid ?

Hi I would also not underestimate the fact that all these chips are very similar and maybe differences in sound quality may not be very big. All these amps are only designed with low cost in mind. I am convinced TBI did not choose this chip for sound quality only nor that they compared the whole range TI had to offer at that time. It would not be the first time coincidence played a role.

That having said I like the idea of a very compact stereo class D amp on one PCB with good sound quality as a bonus.
