Transistor push-pull amplifiers, like their vacuum-tube counterparts, require the use of a phase inverter to supply the required balanced signal input. Transistor inverters are more complicated than conventional vacuum-tube types in that they must provide a balanced current, rather than a balanced voltage, input signal. However, the principles of operation are essentially the same.
