I think the BasX amplifiers are great! I'm really proud of them, and at their price points, they have no real competition. BTW, the output stage is a fully complementary, discrete darlington design and uses the same high speed, high current ON Semiconductor power devices as the XPA Series.
Since we are talking about Darlington.
It was discussed in a thread asking about it. Found here
This is Keith telling us it doesn't have it.
(Note that a triple Darlington is a classic Darlington with an extra transistor - so you can't have a triple Darlington unless you have a classic Darlington as part of it. )
No, none of our current amps use a triple Darlington output stage.
[EDIT: Correction: I misspoke..... the XPA-1 Gen2 does still use a triple-Darlington, although comprised of separate transistors, and it is still current - at least for now. ]
I'm also not sure which of our previous models used it; I'd have to look it up. While some design engineers have obsessions with using (or not usi
