Awesome set-up! I love the aesthetics. Interesting that you went class d with those speakers but I bet it actually compliments the wharfedales nicely. Also interesting that you feel the wharedales are commensurate to your front end. Anyhow, great system!
I'm in love with the Lintons! They're an absolute bargain for what you get in terms of sound quality, and especially build.
The Spendors (D7s) are in a different league though..heck, they cost 4 x more. Tighter/deeper bass, midrange clarity & extended top end all exceed the Lintons. The Spendors do reveal everything in a recording, so poorly recorded material is exposed of all it's flaws.
The Lintons are much more forgiving in that regard, and play nice with all genres of music. Zero fatigue, not matter what is playing.
I'm a fan of Class D amps. The S300 pairs beautifully with my Wharfedales. I may try the M700 monos soon too.
Nice system. I like the way it is not "over complicated" yet very up to date. One of the very few systems using Class D technology (S300) I have seen here on Audiogon. Class D seems to be the "red headed step child of Audiophiles" . That said, I run class D amps too. No heat, plenty of power and great sound IMO.
