Bruno Putzeys article

I was reading about the origins of Class D amplification earlier and came across this interesting article from 2008. It's about Bruno Putzeys and how he designed and developed some of the first commercial Class D amplifiers:

Here's an excerpt from the article that I enjoyed:

"In the end he decided he wasn’t cut out to be a music producer. But he also had an insight into the debate, endless among audiophiles, about coloration. “If it sounds good,” he says, “the right place to put it in is in a recording or mastering studio. There, an engineer can add the coloration that is appropriate to the music. You get an artistically informed choice about when the coloration is used, and when it isn’t. It’s better than using it indiscriminately all the time”—as would be the case if your amplifier added the coloration."
