Anyone had a play, seem quite a step. Up from tripath days.pretty cheap to.

I did find a dc step up chip that looked interesting for a bit of car audio fun but not at £900.

The ti chips for car oems make you see why its all integrated now. A bluetooth chip and an amplifier chip comes in at only a few $.

I use ta2020 and tk2050 chips at home in the form of an amptastic mini-1 and sure electronics 4x100, both being run off laptop psu's
I bloody love them, and don't see myself going back to class a or a/b ever.

The ta2020 inparticular has impressed me, completely silent noise floor, feels MUCH more dynamic at low volumes compared to my previous amps, oodles of musicality.
The tk2050 is used in my active rig, because 4 channels is useful.
My whole music system now uses no more than about 50 watts at high volumes, not bad for a turntable, pre-amp, separate dac, 6 channels of amplification and an active crossover.

iirc ta2020 is a 12v chip, whack a voltage regulator and smoothing circuit infront of it and it should do you fine in car too.

Just finished building a hifi power amp using 2 LM3886 chips rated at 68 watts per chip.
