"Life's too short to be changing tubes"
-Art S / Allentown PA
My neighbor Art who sadly passed away in 2013 was a former surgeon and audiophile. He was a tube amp fan for several decades. He had boxes and boxes of tubes, and many amps. Fancy, high dollar amps. He was biased against Class-D for the usual reasons - he was told they weren't any good. He hadn't heard a Class-D amp in his life, until mine. He was astounded, and that was with my early designs, which only morphed into higher performance. He loved having deep, clean bass. He loved the black background and low distortion. He loved the extended bandwidth and fast transient response. Most of all, he loved CLEAN sound. He was also a fan of nostalgia audio, but really appreciated the practical aspects of my amps, too, like reliability and high performance for the money. Cherry Amps aren't just any Class-D. The old Class-D, from the module crowd, is like a Toyota Prius compared to Cherry Amp, the Tesla of amplifiers!
