A great resource - good reading for geeking out. More fundamentally, you tend to find Class D amplifier output stages used in the new breed of miniature amps. They are simply very light and can be made smaller, they are managed by a digital system. That's really the grass roots difference you find between the two. IMO, much of the class D stuff is very 'Fat' and Powerful sounding, but I usually prefer the sound of standard Analogue amps. With the possible exception of the Jule Monique powered amp.. :blink:

Here's a fairly thorough explanation from one of Peavey's amp engineers: http://www.talkbass.com/threads/class-d-illustrated-lots-of-pics.1083366/
