[time-nuts] ? phase comparison or other device

you are right: Both of these articles should be read with Collins's
perhaps the better (and newer!) one. 

There is however one question remaining for me: When I learned
electronics it was generally considered bad design to let an amplifier
run into limiting due to supply limitations. If limiting was needed, so
was the rule, then it should be accomplished by planned feedback, say an
pair of antiparallel diodes in the feedback path. Can you give some
comments on whether this also applies to ZCDs or if really supply based
limiting is necessary?

Best regards
