Default Class I and T, ┐Que?

I read in the JAES (vol 51, no 1/2 p82) about class D, I and T in a article about Audio Precision.

D = is switched amp but what is I and T?

I think I'll stake a claim on Class X, Y, and Z right now.

Concepts to follow......

Since we in Sweden have three extra letters after z, I suggest that we also define class ┼, ─ and Í and we must also consider class ▄ so the germans guys will stay happy.....

Seriously, is class I and T an "accepted" class?

Imagine all the classes of amps possible in China.
Will be a hard task to invent so many different
amplifying principals.

Hi Peranders

A search on Google: http://www.google.be/search?hl=nl&ie...ss+T+amp&meta= revealed a lot of Class T amps. They seem to be used in the car-audio world.
Here's a clittle more explanation on the T-class http://www.tripath.com/downloads/an2.pdf

Nothing on Class I, but here http://www.mtt.org/ims2000/wma.htm they list almost the whole alphabet.

And here they stoped at H: http://www.win.net/audtatious/audio/ampclass.html

Umm, enough... lol... But thats RMS, so, you either need to be able to supply 3 times the current, or you have a few thousand farad of caps.. Power cable rated at 500amps should be enough.... but better go for 800, just in case.. lol
