This integrated amplifier gives me all I need for the best sound experience in my living room. It offers very good value for money. You can clearly tell the difference between class A and AB mode and switching to the former gives your brain an excellent sound experience. Integrated DAC offers additional input option for a lot of modern input sources. I combine it with the set of XTZ stereo loudspeakers what makes them perfect combination.The design is pure aluminium, very solid and modern look. The only problem was volume knob potentiometer which does not run smoothly anymore but thanks to excellent XTZ team support I will fix it by myself.
Having owned the Class A100 D3 for a good few years now I am still very much enjoying this amplifier. Solidly and quality built, simple but elegant to the eye and being paired with 99.36mkll contributes to a fantastic sound. Enough grunt when required with subtle and refine delivery.
I must also give The XTZ support a thumbs up for the support they gave when the amp developed a couple of problems. THough it was out of warranty, they still help to resolve the problem with spot on diagnosis and fixes on each occasion - for free.
Serves adequately for several years, the quality of sound is excellent. No complaints on the device. Circuit design on an aesthetic level. I am sure, will last for many years. My recommendations.
