Truly a superb and versatile power amplifier which was named The Absolute Sound Amplifier of the Year. I have owned this unit for about a year and am only selling due to the purchase of a Pass Labs amp which was on my bucket list.
The amp has great features - I used this with two preamplifiers by switching between XLR and RCA inputs. And unlike some of the other very few power amps that include this feature, the DPA-1 is designed specifically for this purpose!
I have owed Parasound, Marantz, McCormack and Wyred4Sound power amps and this amp sounded the best in my system.
I give the unit 7-8 out of 10 as it has very minor scuffs, that you may be able see on the top of the unit to the left and the front of the unit lower right, if you look very closely. (You would probably never notice them from a short distance away.)
"The DPA-1 stereo amplifier and DPA-1M mono amplifiers are no less impressive. Their wide dynamics, terrific grip in the bass, and upbeat sonics made them a joy to listen to. Moreover, the amplifiers possess the same level of clarity and resolution as the DDP-1. Significantly, the amplifiers don’t exhibit the shortcomings I’ve heard in previous Class D designs. Even in the context of reference-quality sources and loudspeakers, it was easy to forget that I was listening to electronics that aren’t stratospherically priced.”
“The return of Audio Alchemy is welcome news for those seeking the highest possible price-to-performance ratio in electronics today.”

DPA-1 Review," Stereo magazine (Japan), May 5, 2016:
... The DPA-1 is a beautiful small-sized device that distinguishes itself from many other heavy-duty high-end devices while it has a strikingly appealing sound beyond its class, and its massive output power is noteworthy.”
