Read this review and tell me what you think about the idea of digital amps.

Personally, I think they are the goods. We have the Bel Canto amp that I FLIPPED FOR at CES and Andrew Robinson LOVES (see pending review in March).

Less heat, liquid sound, HUGE volumes of power, quiet, small.

Vast improvements over analog amps of the past.
I haven't read the review yet, but I can tell you this.
The NuForces have a much better control of the bass, but are less refined in sound than the Bel Cantos (I havent heard the latest monoblocks, but a friend of mine is going to buy them).

I dont think SS or Valve amplifiers are a thing of the past. Class D amplifiers still lack some of the magic of Music for me. But they achieved a tremendous sound quality comparable to traditional amplifiers of 3-4 time their price.
