Default Kenwood Excelon KAC-X4R and Infinity Components

All,

I am planning to get this amp, mainly because it looks good on paper.

Link to specs here

I think Kenwood Excelon is similar to Pioneer Premier. I could not get a listen of this amp.

Does anyone here have experience with these and would like to warn/encourage before I go buy this?

I am planning to pair these with:

Infinity Kappa/Perfect (Are the Kappa series brighter than the reference series?)

or

JL Audio XR650 components (these are costly but sound lovely)

Went through the specs, DSP looks very interesting - guess you could use it to run an active 2-way front stage without additionally investing in a high-end HU or outboard processing...if you wanted to. Seems to be conceptually similar to the Zapco DC Reference series...

Dunno about the sound - there's a lot of debate on SQ of class-D vs class-AB, especially for fullrange applications...haven't A/Bed the two personally so can't comment.

Thanks Gunbir. Would you be able to comment on the quality of those amps? Good enough for mid-range speakers such as Infinity Kappa/Focal Access ?

It is available here for $220, which sounds like a nice deal..

Regards,
Kiran
