Yes it will work.

The most serious problem with most switchmode power amps is that their frequency response depends on the speakers they are hooked to. Not a horrible problem, but one that is potentially slightly audible.

How so? I've never heard of that, care to explain, or give a link with explanation?

It's a problem common to most switchmode amps - there is a low pass filter on their output that has increasing reactance even within the audio band. The filter is outside any feedback loop.
