Capacitance, too...

Besides the pure impedance issue, I believe that the capacitative nature of the load presented by any ESL poses issues for some solid state designs, particularly those that use a lot of NFB. Many of the older designs become unstable trying to drive what is essentially a giant capacitor. Modern SS amplifiers may be less prone to this type of problem, depending upon the topology and the amount of NFB.
