Best Class D GaNFET Amp Comparison. Who to invite?

The time has come to put to the people a listening test of some of the better

current "Contenders" in the race for Best Class D GaNFET Sound.


The existing media can not manage such an undertaking for many reasons.

This event will help consumers decide which products best meet their needs.


I have not heard all the players but will suggest these names for inclusion in this comparison.


1. Mola Mola 

2. Atmasphere 

3. AGD

4. Bel Canto

5. NAD

6. ?

7. ?

8. ?


Finale Aavik vs winner of above 


Event will be held either in Seattle or the Bay Area.


We can support about three more brands in this comparison.  

It will be setup as an A/B audience listening event

comparison starting with the two lowest MSRP products.



After the seven A/B comparisons one amp would emerge as the audience favorite.

This winner would then go head to head with the Aavik in the 8th round.


I will plan this for a July-August 2023 event open to the public.


I now open this to further discussion, ideas and suggestions for the last three slots.





Jeff.....ya forgot our Orchard Audio Ultra. It'll win I'm sure of it. Let me know when you need it and I'll work it out with Leo for ya.

@evank,@rajugsw, and @ricevs  thanks.

I am open to supporting this please contact me and we can make arrangements.

I live in Anacortes, so coming to Seattle with my two amps is doable.  I currently have the HifiRose RA180 and NAD M33.  I am very familiar with those two amps.  

PS Audio M1200 would be a great amp to test as well. I'm actually looking to pick up a class D amp so I'd be willing to bring some drinks to the event to listen, if in the Bay. Scotch anyone?

Seattle seems to be taking the lead on support. 

I need to find a better venue to rent for 2 days.

Anyone in the NW with a good room for audio?

Need to be legal for a 200 person capacity.

Joe/Leo- thanks! 

HiFiHandy- the Rose and new NAD are great. Please PM me so we can coordinate.



I will contact the Bay Area folks to see about arranging one there as well.
