Default how good is this amplifier?

Hi I've made my first MOSFET power amplifier, in the output stage I used the IRFP140 with IRFP 9140. The features are these:
rails +/- 21 V unregulated
output rms power 20W into 4ohm
thd 1 khz into 4 ohm 0.002%
thd 20khz no load 0.002%, 8 ohm 0.03%, 4 ohm 0,064%
signal to noise ratio 97 dB (1W into 4ohm), 108 dB (20W 4ohm)
thd is referred into pure resistive loads.
These are the values found using LTspice, I've built it and it sounds fine but i don't have the instruments to see the real performance.
So how is my amplifier? what do you think about it?

I must admit that it has at least one very special feature - it's invisible. No schematic, no photos...

Sorry, using LTspice to determine THD can give you a good direction for your development. But a realistic simulation of THD is almost impossible, you have to measure it later

You have made the same post to about 5 different threads. Are you trying for some sort of record?

Actually, 12 different threads, I've deleted the duplicates. Davide, do not repeat the same post in multiple threads.
