A complementary pair implies class B.Berty bass wrote: ↑Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:53 pmMy Rega Elicit-R is described as having: "a low source Class A driver stage, based around a complementary pair of Darlington output transistors, forming an emulated Class A driver stage". No idea what that means or if it is 'better' than being Class A, Class A/B or anything else, to be honest. Sounds great though, doesn't it?!
Complementary Darlington transistors are also known as a Sziklai pair.
Emulated means it behaves as if it were, but it isn't.
A pair of Darlington transistors doesn't make much sense but pairing transistors often implies class B, except in the case of a Darlington Pair.
So, is this a Darlington Pair or a Pair of Darlington Pairs?
No, it doesn't sound great, it sounds like someone is trying to baffle the customer into hearing what they want to hear.
