I like my X1 amp (ra-1) for portable battery power use and X16 amp (gilmore) for home use. The TPA6120 bass is the most noticable thing over my X1, X3, X12 and everything else also sounds good so far. My X12 amp (ppa circuit) is using opa627 and double buf634 on each channel, so I can't compare it to a standard PPA. My concern of the TPA6120 is on battery power as it won't run as long as the X1 without a bigger battery pack. Runs good on my dual voltage power supply but not as good as my X16 amp.
The TPA6120 draws 21.7 mA on my +14 volt supply and 21.6 mA on my -14 volt supply.
The X1 draws 8.2 mA on each 9 volt battery.
The X16 draws 106 mA on each 14 volt supply.
