If you call a cascode single ended a folded cascode is single ended also, isn't it?

Since the output of the folded cascode is at or near zero DCV I don't see the point here.
I don't choose a higher current in a folded casc. than I would in a regular one (of course
as seen for a single transistor).

Input cascoded plus folded cacode or only folded cascode ?

Ok, color me stupid. We can set the DC voltage out of the folded cascode to a low value with the biasing arrangement.

I still do not understand. Even when we set the current low in the folded cascode, say 1mA, we still have the problem by Ohms law that too much DC voltage develops over the RIAA. This way ......

No, the collector current of the pnp transistor in your drawing has to be sinked
to the negative side in a current source (gain is too low without).

Ok, then we have a plus-minus supply. I did not think about this.
Somehow my brain can not connect single ended to a bipolar supply but why not ?

You should always work with split supplies in order to avoid coupling caps where possible.

OHH, JEE, one coupling cap less - one supply more, anyway itīs cool.

Do you remember FSīs phono i build him ? There you substituted a split supply with a single supply and it worked to my horror nevertheless.
That was the hat trick the other way around. The dove mutated into a cylinder.

At least two caps for stereo, and you need a negative supply for your opamp anyway?
