    The Kratos MKII is a direct digital amplifier with a few design tweaks to help it overcome some of the flaws of other direct digital designs, as well as traditional class A and A/B designs. A system with no DAC and as few conversions as possible, that's what this amp aims for.

    Another preview which is great but when is this one or the Anthem M1 (from a few months ago) going to be reviewed and/or compared with each other or with analog amplifiers ? I think this would be interesting.

    REVIEW PLEASE

    I auditioned the Lyngdorf TDAI 2200 digital direct amp and I loved it !!!!!!

    This is more or less the same animal I reckon, less powerful and less features, but we need a review (read: I NEED A REVIEW) :p

    I have the TDAI 2200 and will probably upgrade to the DPA-1 combined with the Millennium. I agree the TDAI 2200 is great.

    M1 is a strict class D, this is very different topology and non-comparable
