The parallel combination of 100 opamps with 560 ohms in series with the output would give an output impedance of 5.6 ohms. The opamps have short circuit protection, they don't need that big of a resistor. The input offset is low enough that something like 10 ohms would work fine.

At an output of 20mA each opamp the output voltage can swing to about 2V from the rail. With 18V rails you have 16V peak, 2 A peak (20mA per) , that's 16W rms with 8 ohm load. Distortion raises quite a bit if you want too much gain or too much output current, especially at higher frequencies. Keep the output buffers at a gain of 1 or slightly higher. There is probably a better part out there.

I didn't try to figure out which package is best, probably the dual in 8 pin DIP.

OK. I have now posted my question and schematic here:

OpAmp power amp, would this work?

Maybe you want to see what Douglas Self has done with this.

Cheers Nelson. I've just downloaded the PDF of the design, very interesting read. Will have to make a similar thing

Default Maybe Large Scale Integrate [LSI] this Beast

This Beast may lend itself to LSI on a Si and/or a SiC wafer. Afterall, each individual P and N channel FETs belonged to a field of hundreds or thousands simultaneously made on a wafer by TOSHIBA or other. There is a precedence with CMOS Hex Inverters. Ditto for OP Amps which are also made by the tens or hundreds on a single wafer. Just link'em up.
The meticulously hand-wired prototype Beast worked with impeccable performance. The ongoing interest by DIYers worldwide may drive demand for the handmade and LSI Beast versions. The LSI Beast may have a lower cost than hand made.

Best regards.

Like I speculated before, I think Mr. Pass put together these little monsters to characterize it as a whole and reference it for his Pass SITs production...

Blues: Please direct me to the post of your speculation.
