Heh heh.I’ll wait until we have class-F amplifiers for audio and see what the religious makes up about that
Incidentally, about class D and arguments from certain audiophiles, I, and probably many others, have heard (the usual?) arguments such as the classic that it sounds sharp and hard, for example. Hardcore audiophiles prefer distortion factories in the form of single end 300B tube amps that may have a maximum power of two watts. Preferably then a ditto amp with a price tag upwards of $10,000.
There are many strange things I have heard being said. Example this at a HiFi fair (obviously by a class D hating audiophile): "The negative feedback in that amplifier created a too quiet sound, an abysmal black hole, in the quiet parts of the music. A spooky sound."
I went and had a sandwich and coffee instead of engaging in that discussion.
Do not put any of these types of audiophiles in a blind test. They will always come up with an explanation as to why they heard no difference. If DACs and or amps are tested, it will be said that of course you hear no differences with those speakers. Or that they are having a bad day and couldn't concentrate on hearing differences (that they obviously always hear otherwise), and so on.
