I presume you are referring to L702 and RT34 in the schematic above, just to the right of center in the drawing above (HK Citation 12). Notice that there is also a Zobel which is less common:

The following is the schematic of the output stage of an Onkyo TX-809 AVR which shows the series insertion of a similar parallel R/L circuit R5411 and L5424 in center-right.

The word "Naim" comes to mind. I believe that some of their amps are only guaranteed to be stable if you use their brand of speaker cable.

Yes, of course. Outlaw has such a system available and probably others do as well.

Hi Andy. I think you are doing a fine job explaining things. it is just my own quote I don't like. I probably should have had a smiley in my post to you. Cheers.

Okay, I've gone back to the previous page and edited or deleted some quotes.

Yes, that's it. I've also seen the Zobel on the amp side of the inductor too. Dr. Leach in his amp from the 70s put it on the speaker side, actually right across the banana jack terminals at the amp's output. Apparently he had problems with the amp oscillating if it was on the amp side, located on the PCB. I've spoken to someone, I can't remember who, who had the same oscillation problem with the Zobel on the amp side on the PCB, and fixed it by giving the Zobel its own separate return back to the star point from the PCB (isolating it from the main signal ground on the PCB).
