    Octavio AMP

    Hello, I'm curious about this product. There are no reviews. Octavio is like a French copycat of Bluesound. They made a first splash with their Octavio Stream (200€), a streaming DAC with only one AUX input and no digital outputs. Octavio uses Octavio Virtuose for streaming. It looks...

    Hifi News has a review of this very expensive class D with some measurements. Seems to use an Infineon Merus driver with the GanFETs output switchers in a tube bottle. Good power but doesn't seem state of the art in measurements, but interesting with slow rise in distortion with both power...

    Good day, I'm looking for a new amp and am seriously considering the new breed of Class Ds such as Hypex NCore, ICEPower ICEedge, and the seeming unique Starke Sound AD4.320 with NS600 Class D amp mods.

    ICEpower 300A2, 400A2 and 1500S announced

    Finally ICEpower is expanding the use of its ICEedge chip to other modules other than the 1200AS. They went with separate amplifier boards (300A2, 400A2) and a separate power supply (1500S). Still the 400A2 distortion is kind of disappointing. 300A2 Features: 2 channel 300 W @ 1 % THD+N, 20...
