Yes, it is class D, but I'm not comfortable building an SMPS (since none of my simulations ever work as expected with those).Are you building a class-D power amp? If so, it makes no sense to use a linear power supply. Linear PSUs are inferior to SMPSs almost in every aspect, provided that a good quality SMPS is used. Especially if you want a small form actor. You also want to avoid long connection cables which will pick up more noise and may cause instability due to parasitic inductances.
ETA: I should also note that this is in no way a practical project for me. I could buy a SMPS from Connex and be done with it, for cheaper. This is me doing something because I am curious about doing it.
