Maybe more grasping at straws for something in topology that relates to perceived sound quality. I had not heard a reason I am off the cliff on this. Good point, parastatics may swamp it. That's as good a reason as any. Might that suggest the ubiquitous BJT/LED is good enough for most standard applications.

Joachim,

Your heat spreaders and special heat sinks will be on their way this week.
Will email you for details in the next few days.

But all to no vale, since it seems I still need the servo in the end.


Patrick

Added complication, and some people swear they affect the sound .....

So I took the challenge to try to do without.
But as you also said before, doing it for circuits without global feedback is very tricky ....
Apparently the N and the P devices do not track each other very well thermally.

If you follow other threads I post, you would notice that I have a HAGS module (gain of 4) for the DAO SE headphone amp.

http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/headp...ml#post3436424

This has been proven to be DC stable even with gain of 4.
The circuit topology is very similar to that of the XCEN, so that I can see no reason why it cannot be adapted.

So at this moment, we'll finish th ework on the HAGS first before we come back to adapt the results there for the XCEN.


Patrick
