Audio Electronics: Testing a Tripath Power Amplifier
Our late and much esteemed author, Ron Tipton, shared a fascinating project on testing Class-T or Tripath power amplifiers on the pages of audioXpress. As he characterized, these "small, inexpensive, and power-efficient units," sounded good "but testing them is problematic." The article also discusses the story of Tripath Technology and speculates on the reasons why the Tripath ICs remained popular among the DIY audio community.
