I can't tell if they are Class D or AB from the pictures. . .I suspect
they are Class AB. . .someone has used them though. . .give it some
time. . .certainly scant info on the web.

Maybe write to them and see if they will let you contact current
customers. . . someone other than the company that uses them?

Good luck.

Class AB.

The designer has deep experience in this area, and they are reputed to be very good.

Would you believe that some people of this club are familiar with Anthony Holton's designs for well over a decade ?

I know Anthony reasonably well, and value his experience and opinion. He is a very nice guy, and this is lonely work, and credit is due his designs.

Sadly I have heard only one of his amps, an early NX series. Damn good too. We have discussed many amp design issues over coffee and I have particular respect for his skills with mosfet design; he knows mosfet cross-conduction and HF operation better than anyone else I've met.

In fact, in an amusingly guarded way we even discuss our designs!!

There are enough customers in the world to keep us both in daily bread if our products are good enough..... and some collaboration improves the products, no question.

Cheers,

Hugh

I dont know which personal devellopment Anthony has gone through, but clearly something has happened, and I think it is clearly seen in his new deigns, which look much better and more "mature" than his "older" ones ... I am quite confident that they are good solid designs

There may be an issue with handling mosfets with regards to earthing your work area to deal with "statics" ... I am no expert, but it might be better to buy assembled boards ... some oppinions on this aspect would be nice, if it really is an issue

you can only buy it as a fully assembled "module" now and not just as a kit.
