New Tutorial on Class D Audio Amplification


The latest in our series of online tutorials is now available for members to view online.

Given by AES member, Bruno Putzeys, at the 124th Convention, A UNIVERSAL GRAMMAR OF CLASS D AUDIO AMPLIFICATION helps to demystify the otherwise baffling array of seemingly disjoint philosophies and topologies. Putzeys outlines the building blocks and design choices underlying all Class D designs, as well as showing how certain arrangements can have real performance advantages. The release of this master class is timed to coincide with the 37th International Conference on Class D audio amplification.

Please note: most AES tutorials are currently only available to view online in streamed form. They cannot be downloaded and stored for offline viewing.
