Amplifier Technology: The Ongoing Class Struggle
[Feature] The quest for low power consumption with high output power and audio quality continues to drive the “class struggle” in audio amplifier design. The introduction of silicon carbide transistors is one important development in this field, helping to reduce distortions and losses in switching amplifiers. New testing methods challenge conventional wisdom about how best to predict the perceptual effects of amplifier distortion.
