Default Burning in class-D/T amps

I remember reading a few years ago that class-T amps should always be burned in with a load, either speakers, or load resistors. If I recall correctly, this was because they can become unstable running without a load.

Was this correct, or just another Internet myth?

Personally, I wouldn't think burning them in without a load would be sufficient anyway.

leaving behind the idea of burning in, i suggest that neither a class T or D amplifier with pre-filter feedback should be left running at any volume without a load. even if it has Zobel network.

Hi,
I not agree with this.
Is likely that the amplifiers are unstable or not well designed.
