I see no reason why those Fets should not work here.
A simple parallel symmetric buffer whithout the BJTs whould work well too.
John Curl made buffers that way.
I will try my RME Firface 400 card today and try to make some higher resolution distortion measurements.
The RME card should be better then my M-Audio Transit.

I guess we all need a small dead bug construction headphones amp to fit in our phono stages as standard. So we can listen to vinyl at night without feeding through preamps, interconnects, stand alone headphones amps. It can be a an integrated phono-phones-preamp even if we steal for current boosted RCA output too. What do you think?

Its the 2N54XX are good and linear but they lack current. But have low Ciss, Crss and noise on the other hand. So BJTs are needed to boost. And here is the original from the 90's. JLH used 2N54XX indeed!

Yes, good idea. My Self preamp has that feature.

i knew the JLH buffer for many years but i never tried it until recently. That was a mistake, it works very well indeed.

Can the trimmer really null the offset at JLH's output node in your experience from when you implemented it as input stage in your headphones amp? Or it will need cap coupling if a standalone volume buffer for instance?

The offset can be nulled and is very stable at + - 0.1mV.
PSU needs stable voltage of cause so after i listened 2 hours on 7AH batteries the offset was 0.3mV on one channel and 0.4mV on the other becaue the batteries did not have equal voltage any more. No problem with the sound though.

Now I think if we put BD139,140 directly in the JLH Jfet-BJT compound follower, maybe we can directly drive headphones with just 4 semiconductors and a healthy voltage input for it?

That should be posible.
The circuit as is can drive 150 Ohm, so even that circuit could already drive high impedance phones.

Errata : Ikoflexer found a small mistake in circuit post 1088.
The LME49713 op amps PSU connection is reversed. Pin 4 should go to - supply and pin 7
should go to + supply of cause.
A Rega P3 + arm went on eBay yesterday for 277 euro....
