Default amplifier switching power supplies

OK, what are the pros and cons of switching power supplies? The Bel Canto seems to be a good implementation of a switching power supply amp. Are the nOhr Le Amp IIs similar or do they have design differences that make them worse than the Bel Canto?

Bel Canto Design -- Bel Canto Digital Amplifers
Bel Canto Design -- S300 Dual Mono Audio Power Amplifier

Le Amp II

Pros: Small, light, efficient, easy (if you buy ready made) Some like the way they sound.
Cons: Noise, cost, complexity. Some don't like the way they sound.

That's my take. I use them.
Take the Speaker Voltage Test!
