  Mobile Phones Glossary - From the Polyphonic Ringtones Site
Digital AMPS (Digital-Advanced Mobile Phone Service) is the digital wireless standard widely used throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific and other areas.
On digital networks, data doesn’t need to go though the extra step of being converted to an analog signal, voice is sampled and coded in a way similar to how it is recorded on a CD.
Digital networks are fast replacing analog ones as they offer improved sound quality, secure transmission and can handle data directly as well as voice.

  Embedded.com - Digital amps pose power supply challenge
A digital amp applies a 30- to 40-volt signal from a power supply directly across a speaker and reverses it at a frequency of several hundred kilohertz.
Digital amps typically have no feedback and apply the power supply voltage directly to the speaker, so the power supply typically needs better regulation than a system with feedback.
One difference between digital and linear amps is that digital amplifiers have an open-loop architecture.

  Digital AMPS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
IS-54 and IS-136 are second-generation (2G) mobile phone systems, known as Digital AMPS (D-AMPS).
D-AMPS uses existing AMPS channels and allows for smooth transition between digital and analog systems in the same area.
Capacity was increased over the preceding analog design by dividing each 30 kHz channel pair into three time slots and digitally compressing the voice data, yielding three times the call capacity in a single cell.

Digital modeling changed all that by offering tube-type tone in responsive, flexible, and cost-effective packages that retained much of the flavor of the amps and effects guitarists have known and loved forever.
A modeling amp's mission is to stuff all the sounds associated with a wide variety of traditional amps into a single box.
In the case of guitar amp, a model is not intended merely to sound like a specific amp; it's meant to behave as that amp would in real life.

It was later replaced by the newer Digital TDMA systems, such as Digital AMPS and GSM, which brought improved security as well as increased capacity.
AMPS and TDMA are now being phased out in favor of either CDMA and GSM which allow for higher capacity data transfers for services such as WAP and i-mode, Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS), and wireless Internet Access.

In other words, a 500 watt digital amp may well put out 500 watts max, whereas when we rate an amp, we're rating RMS and you double that figure to get full peak power.
Digital preamp uses midi to change settings/parameters (bass/mid/effects, etc), and digital processing to mimic various kinds of amplifiers, these are the "modelling" amps.
Digital power amps could mean digital or switching power supply with a normal solid state output stage.

with digital amps on the horizon does anyone know if they are supperior as far as sound quality, i can understand as far as size and heat issues, but for sound quality do they really make that much of a difference over their analog predecessors.
An amps job is to take an input signal and output the same exact signal (ideally) with enough power to drive the speaker on the other end.
A digital amps advantage is smaller size, much better efficiency, and practically no heat.

Coming back to the subject, I think, digital amps are not exaggertating the attack, but I think the decay is not that good (in comparison with high-end audiophile analog amps).

I have read just about all the threads around here that relate to digital amps, being a recent convert, and it is interesting to read about the experiences of others, when they try a digital amp in their system.
I modified two by putting the amp circuit board in a wooden block, and used one to drive Jordan JX92S drivers in sealed boxes (with a cap for 1st order HP around 180Hz) and two bass boxes that cover the bass below 180Hz..
I fired up the Blaupunkt car amp again to compare it to the modified Sonic Impact amps, and I felt that the little SI amps actually sounded better with the Jordans than the much more powerful car amp.

 Define D-AMPS — Digital Advanced Mobile Phone Service
D-AMPS is a spin-off of AMPS which is a first generation (1G) analog mobile phone system developed in the 1980’s.
Dualmode analogue/ digital terminals have been developed, allowing operators to include both analogue and digital base transceivers in their networks, often sharing the same base station.
Digital channels can easily be added to an existing AMPS network and any number of analogue channels can be made digital without disturbing the level of service.

 Guitar Amp: Buying Guide
Modeling amps are programmable, and often have built-in digital effects such as delay, chorus, etc. Some include digital or analog outputs with speaker simulation for going direct into a recording interface or PA system.
Practice amps are usually solid state or modeling combo units featuring low power (10-30 watts) and small (8" or 10") speakers, although there are some small tube amps to be found.
Digital amps often require the purchase of an additional MIDI footswitch to change tones remotely.

It is a digital extension of AMPS and so it is also quite widely known as Digital AMPS (D-AMPS).
Developed by Bell Labs in the 1970s and first used commercially in the United States in 1983, AMPS operates in the 800 and 1900 MHz band in the United States and is the most widely distributed analog cellular standard.
Digital transmission is preferred, so when a cellular system has digital capability, the mobile unit is assigned a digital channel first.

Digital AM stations were supposed to deliver sound quality close to what analog FM stations deliver.
Digital dropouts aren’t expected to happen often, however, because digital stations broadcast a second digital signal as a backup.
In fact, specific features have been designed into iBiquity Digital’s IBOC technology to improve the existing analog reception during the “hybrid mode.” As the market reaches maturity, broadcasters are expected to transition out of analog broadcasts and offer “all-digital mode” in much the same way that television stations did with fl-and-white programming.

Clearly, digital amps deserve serious consideration in new designs, and the overall size of the audio market means there's great opportunity for purveyors of digital alternatives.

After all, the distortion phenomena that stand in the way between a perfectly formed digital control signal and a perfect analog replica are inherently analog.
Quite obviously the concept of a digital class D amplifier was dreamt up by DSP folks who presumed that the signal should be kept out of the big bad analog world as long as possible, at the same time expecting the power stage, power supply and filter (all highly analog in nature) to perform flawlessly.

Furthermore, most modeling amps and preamps work well in direct recording situations (in fact, DI is the raison d'être for popular preamps like the Line 6 POD and Johnson J-Station).
Perhaps the biggest reason for modeling's emergence is timing: Digital amps started to develop sonic credibility just as home recording became a viable alternative to commercial studios, and at the same time that tonal tastes have become more eclectic.
First, guitarists are accustomed to using simple amps on stage, so designers must balance the ideal of flexibility (and the complexity that comes with it) and simplicity.
