Benefit to me is that my cost for a board is only a few dollars, instead of $60 if i sent it out. I did the same thing with two of SY's designs.

Not bad considering you didnt match the devices. Anyone doing the ear eq tests, yet?

What did you use as the source resistors - R3,4 - 47 ohms seemed best to me. I ran the amp for 5 hours and offset changed by only a couple mV.

I only had a dozen or so of the MJE200/210 so rushed to solder it up without matching the output devices, and the results were really excellent for my "pro forma" sennheiser hd-650 impedance of 300 ohms.

51.1 Ohms. The excellent thermal drift is due to the topology.... something i dont think most people appreciate and few of the circuits seen here can match without a dc servo (A concept I introduced to the world). You'll get sota distortion numbers if you match all devices. I hope others will buy the issue from LinearAudio for the explanations of this deceptively simple and cheap circuit. It's all in the topology as I think John Curl has said.

As this buffer shown in the article is one of the derivatives in the article moving towards the final circuit and not intended for diy building - note it will probably smoke the Q1/Q2 unless you put series resistors in their emittters.

Hello! I still love your article about capacitors!

Hi

Is it possible to paste a schematic of this amplifier?

That developed out of listening tests done first by my friend Peter Moncrief of IAR which got me to wondering-- what is it about a capacitor that could make them sound the way he described? The research i did first came out in bits and pieces in TAS LTE until Walt Jung contacted me to do a article on the whole subject.
