Is the Axiom? The A1400-8 is a Class D amp. The "D" does not stand for digital.

Nope; D just happens to be the amplifier class that follows class C. It's a switching amplifier(possibly even tube-powered) that can use either analog or digital control circuits and of course has an analog output. See brief Wiki discussion.

In the general nomenclature of amps, D was just the letter that came after C to designate the class of amps that converts an input into a pulse-width modulated analog signal. It was not meant to refer to digital amps.

Digital amps convert input into a pulse-code modulated signal. Digital amps can be Class D, Class E or Class F if they pulse code modulate.

Dundas, yes the Axiom amp is a digital amp, the "D" has nothing to do with it.

There's no such thing as a digital amp as there's no bit-stream conversion at all.
