Default After search...need schematic to stereo preamp with only 4 bjt transistors

Hi all , how are you ?
I want to build a simple stereo preamp with gain of X5-X6

Something like this preamp stage in Marantz 2226 (this stage is before the tone control )

i did a search here but I founded only complicated preamps
I want preap with only 4 BJT transistors , 2 to each side .

do you have a recommedation for me ? or you think I can build this marantz 2226 stage . and it will be just fine ?
thanks have a nice day .

Circuit around RE05, RE07 & RE08 does not look right to me!

Anyway, just out of interest: why are you limiting your design to the use of 'just' two BJTs per channel? However I agree that less is more (sometimes)...

thanks for the replies , i don't know why think something wrong with RE 05 07 08
but the schema shows that there is connection to ground here ,
but there isn't .
it is goes straits to the other channel

But without short circuit across RE08, should work OK, and give a gain of about x3.7 if using for example ZTX651 / ZTX751 for the transistors.

Looks like a half of diamond buffer. Do the proper diamond buffer and throw the caps away.
Two additional BJTs are better than two additional coupling caps. Much better.

edit: ahh, you need gain. I always though of preamps as unity-gain devices....

This is taken from the Radford HD250 preamp. These simple two transistor gain stages can offer outstanding performance and are easily altered to suit.
