Class D Integrated Amplifier Recommendations.

Just curious to peoples experiences with current batch of Class D Integrated Amps available today.

I have been unimpressed with the offerings from NAD and find the Technics model's  lack soul. 

Trying to stay under $5,000.00

Thank you for any insight, recommendations. 




I’ve recently purchased a GoldNote PA-10 which touts some kind of a GaN architecture combined with class A (or resembling a class A) design. Not exactly a hybrid, still more “class D” overall. It sounds spectacular, even running out of my integrated through preamp out. Looking at getting a decent tube pre to accompany it. Maybe get another one and run them dual mono.

it’s a power amp, not integrated. But just wanted to advocate the great possibilities with GaN offerings. It’s tonally rich, balanced, great stage, and turned my speakers into super quick little monsters.


OP I saw you’re unimpressed with NAD but I’ve had the NAD M33 for a couple months now and feel it is very good. Especially given the price point.  That’s in comparison to my Bartók driving Mark Levinson 536 monos which I also have. 

No offense had several NAD units and they all went back with technical issues. M10, M32 and one other I do not recall the model.

Love the comparison of the 536 to the 33. Still not looking at NAD with their track record. 



@riccitone Had a PA-10  in a office system and it was okay would have liked trying them bridged in mono.
