Just a senseless observation...
Subjective ramblings, nothing quantative here...
It occurs to me, after some months of listening to my UCD 180's that they remind me of my fathers Heathkit tube amp on a pair of early AR's, both of which he built. (I'm on a pair of Exodus 2641 clones - but don't even ask...)
A certain warmness, discreteness, almost whimsical musicality. I get the sense that when I'm listening to "Fixing a Hole" that I'm hearing (however bizarre) what was recorded. Or Dire Straights, with their almost vocal guitar tonalities.
I have a Jamo MPA-101 which is warm and round (very satisfying) but it is a distinctly coloured sound.
A friend of mine, a studio musician, remarked when he heard the UCD's - "That's the most honest amp I've ever heard."
My NADC270 is magnificent but still lacks the "honesty" of the UCD.
Odd quality, honesty.
It makes you unlearn old listening habits - redefine power in terms of listening satisfaction as opposed to raw SPL.
After a longish time - I like this amp more than the rest. It takes a while to learn to hear it - but once you do it ruins everything...
Are Brystons Class-D?

Re: Just a senseless observation...
Welcome to the club, always good to hear these stories, especially the remarks of a studio musician friend. I also think these UcD modules are very natural sounding. I have found that to be a quality of other Class D amps as well. There is something magic about Class D.
