Charlize amp and SMPS
Here's more to my amp. Charlize on the left and Sonic Impact in the middle and the SMPS on the right, all under one hood. I called it the CSI (Charlize-Sonic Impact) amp.
Mods done: Replaced all wirings to Belden cables, ALPS potentiometer, fans to cool the chips, gold plated RCA's and binding post. Changed the input capacitors to boutique quality Clarity Caps, 2.2uF for the Sonic Impact and 3.3uF for the Charlize.

My poorboy audio system:
You can read reviews on class d amp using Tripath chips. This competes with the hi-end audiophile amps in quality but at a cheaper cost. A true "bang for the buck" gear. It has all the bells and whistles from the international audiophile community.
Below are the links to the reviews.
