Aren't the A-4s Class AB? I paid 1K for my Outlaw 7000X and spec-wise it lines up with two A-4s (minus the 8th channel obviously) but the thing that interests me with the new Monolith offerings (and the D-Sonics) is the Class D implementation. We've known efficiency-wise that Class D is where it's at, but according to the hi-fi community sound quality has needed to catch up to AB--though I have an old Pioneer Elite SC-05 with ICEPower Class D amps which I thought sounded fine back in the day. Speaking of, maybe I'll dust that sucker off and plug it in to my old MB Quarts and see what it sounds like in stereo. The only reason I decommissioned it was to be able to support the latest HDMI versions and audio codecs like Atmos.However, having said that, between the 8125 for $2K and two Emotiva A-4s for $1,100 total, with similar specs, I'll take the Emotivas.
