One of the common misconceptions about D-class live power amplifiers is that the 'D' stands for 'digital'. It actually doesn't stand for anything in particular - the simple truth is that it was just the next letter in line after classes A, B and C. With that said, D-class amps do share one thing in common with digital pro audio equipment: they're compact and lightweight. In live sound systems, which tend to contain large numbers of power amplifiers that may even need to be rigged up anew for each show, this makes a huge difference! A D-class amp is also more power-efficient than the other classes, which leads to a cooler-running and more reliable rack of equipment than the competition.
Lots of the top amplifier brands have D-class live power amps in their catalogs, so choosing the right one for your system can be as easy as going for the name you're most familiar with. Behringer is a classic choice for situations where high standards and tight budgets collide, making a strong showing with options like the Behringer iNUKE NU1000 Power Amp and iNUKE NU6000 Power Amp. Another favorite is Peavey, with top sellers such as the Peavey IPR2 3000 Power Amp to its name. Looking for something with all the bells and whistles? Maybe a QSC model will hit the spot - how about the QSC PLD4.2 Multi-Channel System Processing Amplifier or the QSC PLD4.5 Multi-Channel System Processing Amplifier?
These are just a few initial suggestions to get you started, so don't hesitate to look further and check out all the D-class live power amplifiers this section has to offer. Finding the best one for your setup is something only you can do, because nobody else knows your pro audio system as well as you.

Not many pieces of pro audio gear are as consistent as D-class power amps, so finding the perfect unit can be as easy as building a list of your 'must-have' features!
