Default My line buffer preamp

Hello

I've done, with Ltspice, a line buffer preamp with a gain of 1.4x , any opinions about it ?

Any improvements suggestions ?

I include the schematic and the asc file.

Thank

Bye

Gaetan

Looks a bit too much like an opamp Why not try single ended input?

Yeah then instead of voltage feedback to the gate, how about current feedback to the source? Then a passive RF filter on the input, series L shunt C?

Hello

You mean moving it to between R10 and V3 ?

Thank

Between R10 and J3. J3's source.

Hello

I've just simulated the circuit with feedback between R10 and J3, the result are very bad.

Thank

It might be because of the 2nF (C4) capacitor - can't use a capacitor with CFB. Also the value of the feedback resistor probably needs reducing as its critical with CFB, unlike with VFB.

Hello

Your right, I've take out the capacitor and reduced the feedback resistor by half, but it may need more experiment since the thd is higher at -60db.

Thank

Hello

Here's the asc file of that last circuit with current feedback.

Thank
