Superiority of Current Drive (Part 2 – is finally here!)

Damping Factor Freaks and Zero Output Impedance Believers …. a  **MUST** read of you all.
The PART 2 of Mr. Esa’s exciting article is freshly out, fairly fresh stuff, dated 21 January 2014, to be read at  EDN:

Loudspeaker operation: The superiority of current drive over voltage drive (Part 2)

… for those of you, who missed out on Part 1 …

… and since we are hitting the theme of clarity of sound, distortion, and how to get rid of it, while you are there, on those respectful EDN pages … also check out the two other articles on the side tab:
