I haven't done measurements in like 20 years, when i studied electronics. But, I hope it's common knowledge that electronic components have to settle in (stable temperatur etc). I finally decided another road, and am now in finance :-)

I have never been able to tell a difference over several day. With a completely cold amplifier, not used in several days, I can hear a difference after one or two hours.

How do I calculate this, I have a input resistance of 2k2 on the module, a DCR from the transformer secondary of 91 Ohm in parallel with the 2k2.

Can I just put a cap parallel to this or would this create a problem because
of the inductance of the secondary of the transformer?

Would a Zobel be a better solution?

Someone from JRDG mentioned that to get the best out of a class D amplifier
it would be good to limit the incoming bandwidth to the module.

Please advice,
A 1K series resistor on the input side of the transformer and 2.2nF cap in parallel with the secondary (assuming 4:1 transformer ratio) will give a 3dB cutoff at 38KHz.

A Zobel can be useful to dampen resonances caused by transformer leakage inductance but either a complete spice model of the transformer or trial and error with an oscilloscope is needed.
