I had the same problem... "Oh my god I hear everything more!"
I am used to them now.  My mixes sound better.

Would you guys mind swapping your old amps back into the system after spending a few weeks in Hypex-land?

I'd like to hear some comments about what your old amps sound like to you now.

Is anything particularly noticible about them now that wasn't so obvious before?

Do you miss anything about them?

I sold my Haflers before I thought to do that. I have suspicions what I would hear but at this point it just memory and conjecture.

Any time you've back in the neighborhood you can give them a listen.

Interesting. Not at all my experience - unless the source material is fatiguing. What monitors are you using?

Greg, John,

Thanks for the additional input.

I spent the early part of last year mixing through a 'lesser' class-d amp, and I noticed that when I swapped my high current linear amp back in, I felt that I was hearing music for the first time...

I realize that the Hypex is light years ahead of the competition, but wonder if anybody has had any sort of empirical observations about what the differences they are hearing might be, in going from Linear to Hypex and also Hypex to Linear....

I hear what you're saying, Chuck. It's sort of reminiscent of the rush to transistors then back to tubes - or even digital then back to analog. I don't think this is the same thing, though.

I really think the difference, at least in my situation, boils down to a lot less distortion than I had previously been hearing. I may learn these 'new' artifacts some day and decide I've made a rash judgment, but I don't think that will happen this time.

We'll see.

big difference for me, is im hearing all sorts of flaws in the recordings i was having a hard time hearing before..... every little edit, cough, chair bump, and gnat fart is painfully obvious.

stereo is WIDER, mono is more centered...etc...  

i have very phase sensitive ears (i cannot wear headphones without getting dizzy), so, i think thats what's causing my "fatigue"

but, im very happy. (except about the part where i blew up one module)

I'd be interested to hear if anyone has tested the Hypex amps next to the Pass Labs stuff. I know the Hypex stuff has WAY lower distortion, etc, but I'm wondering how it sounds in comparison...
