    I doubt it. Looks like Class A/B to me with hints of design from Dan Dag.

    Maybe that amp isn't as big as the picture makes it look.

    Which other of their amps is Class A?

    Beautiful chassis!

    edit: Found it....it's right on their web page for the P-300
    "The Aavik P-300 features a unique 150 W efficient Class A, non-switching output section where the bipolar output devices never stop conducting current. This means that the amplifier circuitry never has to deal with residuals such as switching spikes and device latchings."
