Let us ban it first the 100 kilowatts passenger cars with a bigger performance.
And I was quite liberal yet then.

some thoughts of my own to add:

I suspect that Class A is a niche product, with the vast majority of amplifiers being Class AB and growing rapidly into Class D. How significant is the contribution to global warming from Class A amplifiers ? could it be less than the contribution from the use of our computers participating on DIY internet forums?

Will Nelson be 'forced' to make a particular type of product - well, perhaps that's for his customers to decide ?

Do we use too much energy - I think the issue is how we get that energy.

In the meantime, let's have some fun with Class A amplifiers

You do know the Heartland Institute is funded by Exxon, and the vast majority of "scientists" on that petition are conservative economists, mining engineers, and television weathermen, don't you?

That is a good point.

My PC which typically runs 24/7 uses quite a bit more power than my little Class A amp.

On the other hand I am replacing many incandescent bulbs with LED's which will save energy and heat. My kitchen has 9 65 watt incandescent recessed fixtures. Having the kitchen lights on uses much more power than my amp. My mother-in-law who lives with me turns them on everytime she walks past and has not once turned them off.

I guess it all has to be in perspective. If I could turn off my PC and the kitchen lights, I could run my amps for FREE!

I would have agreed with you 100% a year ago, but she has been so helpful with our one year old that I now only agree 80%.

Bill,

Coloradosound,
While you're at it, why not find some tenuous link for Class A amps and abortion? A little politics (and make no mistake, AGW is as much politics as science) mixed into this forum should heat things up nicely.
Merry Christmas,
Garrett
