Ok, I did my best to find an existing thread on this but only found conflicting information that skirted around my key question, which is ... If you are considering a Class-D amp, is there a relatively easy way to determine if it's also digital or analog? The manufacturers of many lightweight amps seem to be vague in describing their own amps. The fact that too many people assume that all Class-D amps are digital doesnt help. What I have read and think I understand is the difference between an analog Class-D amp and a digital Class-D is simply the pre-amp controls and the signal being fed to the power stage? The power stage, in general terms, is the same and needs to be analog for speaker output - similar but more efficient than other classes? Close enough? I'm honestly trying! Either way, if the manufacturer doesn't come right out and say it in the manual but provides a schematic, is there a simple component (a chip, integrated circuit, etc) or lack thereof that definitively indicates whether the amp is analog or digital? I have the Traynor SB500H which I love and swear by regardless, but curious. If i email Traynor tomorrow, they will tell me about the SB500H specifically. I'm also interested to know in a more general sense. Hard to know what's what out there with so much misinformation. I sincerely hope this thread doesn't add to even more misinformation Cheers!
