Performance
   Bandwidth       An amplifier's power bandwidth or large-signal bandwidth refers to the device's ability to provide a maximum output voltage swing with increasing frequency. At certain frequencies, the output becomes slew-rate limited and begins to degrade. This frequency is the upper limit of the power bandwidth. The output voltage at this frequency is the peak output swing of the amplifier.

   Operation Class       
   Your choices are...         
   Class A       Class A amplifier designs are output stage devices that pass currents at all times, even when the input stage is idle. Since the output stages are always "active", presence of an input signal causes output current to be diverted directly to the loudspeakers. The slew rate is very quick and there is only a small delay between the introduction of signal at the amplifier's inputs and outputs. If all stages of the amplifier are biased in Class A mode, and the amplifier produces all currents at its output, regardless of input signal. Because of the full-bias-current-on state of Class A amplifiers, they are the most inefficient of all designs; however, Class A amplifiers are the most linear. 
   Class AB       AB amplifiers are a combination of Class A and Class B operations. An amplifier is said to be in Class AB operation if the amplifier operates in Class A for part of its output, and turns on an additional current for the rest of its output. The amplifier's slew rate is slower in Class AB operations than in Class A because there is a measurable length of time between the appearance of input signal and the appearance of output signal. The Class AB amplifier type is the most popular due to its increased efficiency and excellent linearity. 
   Class B       Class B operations are essentially the opposite of Class A operation. No currents flow when the output devices are idle, and thus must turn on from a zero-current state when signal is present. In addition, both output devices (negative and positive) are never active at the same time. If given a sine wave, each output device will operate for half the waveform. Thus, the Class B operation is very efficient; however, the linearity of the amplifier suffers when the signal approaches the point at which the output devices change. Class B operation amplifiers are not generally used for professional audio equipment, and are reserved for low-power operations such as radios. 
   Class C       Class C amplifiers are used for radio-frequency transmissions. This class is similar to Class B operations in that each output stage device (negative, positive) is turned on for less than one-half cycle, and pulsed on and off through the duration of the half-cycle. Class C amplifiers can produce large amounts of output power, although the distortion is great. RF circuitry has been developed and tuned to alleviate the effects of this distortion. 
   Class D       Class D refers to an amplifier design that is also switched. The output devices are switched on and off at least twice per cycle. Because the output devices (negative and positive) are completely on or completely off, no power is dissipated. Real-life Class D amplifiers are not 100% efficient, but approach 90%. 
   Class E       Class E operation involves amplifiers designed for rectangular input pulses, not sinusoidal audio waveforms. The output load is a tuned circuit, with the output voltage resembling a damped single pulse. 
   Class F       Class F amplifiers are RF and Microwave amplifiers. 
   Class G       Class G operation involves changing the power supply voltage from a lower level to a higher level when larger output swings are required. There are several ways to do this; the simplest involves a single class AB output stage that is connected to two power-supply rails by a diode or a transistor switch. This design is for most musical program material; the output stage is connected to the lower supply voltage, and automatically switches to the higher rails for large signal peaks (thus the nickname rail-switcher). Another approach uses two class AB output stages, each connected to a different power supply voltage, with the magnitude of the input signal determining the signal path. Using two power supplies improves efficiency enough to allow more power for a given size and weight. Class G is becoming common for pro-audio designs. 
   Class H       Class H operation takes the Class G design one step further and actually modulates the higher power supply voltage through the input signal. This allows the power supply to track the audio input and provide just enough voltage for optimum operation of the output devices. The efficiency of Class H is comparable to Class G designs. 
   Other       This refers to other unlisted operation classes.
