In any case, the class-D outputs are not tacked on the output of an analog amplifier, but perhaps the other way around so that the analog amplifier dictates the final result.
Their video talks about the Class-D and Class-A amplifiers running in parallel, but who knows if that's how it actually works. They claim to have it patented, so one could always look up the patent for a clearer description.

Either way, I don't think it's the kind of thing most hobbyists could knock up from scratch.
