It's not so much that class D power amps are more transparent, it's that they're more linear. As in their sonic characteristics don't change (much) as they get louder. You need high headroom capability for that and class D amps are usually up to 90% more efficient than classes A, AB and C amps. This translates to smaller/lighter/cooler ... perfect for a high powered profiling amp like the Kemper. You don't want that beautiful 1968 50 watt Plexi profile to significantly 'change' (due to power amp inefficiency) just because you turn it up or down a 1/2 db.

600 watts (300 per side) is pretty normal for a good stereo power amp and one that can and will handle the 'linearity' needed for a PA, studio monitors and by extension - profiler/modeler amplifiers.
