I managed to make the amplifier oscillate finally. I saw few hundreds of milivolts of Dc offset. Thanks for your help.

It is impossible to perform DC and AC analysis in this design. Am I right?

In order to calculate THD and IMD, what analysis that I needs to do ?

There's another problem with your schematic: bottom end of C8 should connect to the node common to D6 anode, R24, U6 collector, U4 source etc., not to U8 cathode.

For frequency domain modelling, you can build a small-signal equivalent circuit, which can be helpful in terms of designing additional active loop-compensation. See Bruno's paper on the amplifier.

For modelling distortion, you could try a time-domain FFT analysis.

There aren't many components in the amplifier and PCB layout will play a significant role in its performance, so better to build it and measure it in real life

Default my imd

Hai..guys. I had successfully simulated my thd with .four . My thd is around 0.03 which is almost the same with the manufacture datasheet. I had simulated my IMD. But I had problem on how to determine the value of my IMD. I inserted a series voltage supplies , 9.5KHz and 10.5KHz in my Vin. Both of my sidebandsi amplitude is below -100db. My amplitude in the graph at 9.5KHz and 10.5Hz are both -33.dB . The rest are mostly below -100db. So can I know the way to determine my IMD?

You'll probably be interested in downloading the "Audio Measurement Handbook" from Audio Precision here: AP High Performance Audio Analyzer & Audio Test Instruments : Home, and this application note from Rane Audio: http://www.rane.com/pdf/ranenotes/Au...ifications.pdf
