Marantz discrete op amp (line stage or headphone amp)

Last one for today.

I was having problems getting this to work, the key seems to be adjusting R6 to null the voltage offset. Works fine now, but this is just a rough reverse engineer of the diagram, the parts values and the type of transistors are essentially placeholders.

The input jFET is shown as a dual package. The output bias current is most likely much lower than the 100 mA I configured, so the class A output power is proportionately smaller. For the rest of the currents and the types of transistors used, your guess is as good as mine.

edit: R7 should most likely be closer to 47 ohms, while another 5p capacitor should go in parallel with the feedback resistor, R17.

    You might have to adjust R6 a lot less if you substitute a diode connected BC547c for D1. As is you get uneven contributions from each side of the diff pair.

    I'll look into that. Thanks!

    Why are R4 and R6 such drastically differently values? Shouldn't they be the same?
