tnx boyz ...... as I said , I'm in age when I certainly forgot more than I know now ....

regarding buffer type - I'm working on Diamond buffer , which is going to have similar THD spectra as complementary JFet one , and even better when loaded hard
of course that most important advantage is 100% lesser number of preciousssssss JFets in it

I couldn't stop turning my head in circles for day or so , trying to figure how's that I can't manage less than 25R on output , whatever I do ...... how's that possible that Diamond buffer is same as JFet buffer in that department , when I know that I both simed and measured bjt as superior to JFet , regarding Rout
and then , I realized that I'm constantly probing values for Rout calc on autoformer output ( not on buffer output) ..... while I was doing exactly opposite when calculating the same for JFet iteration
so - not bad , 25/4 R on buffer itself
we'll see soon , I'm getting pcbs in few days , will test them as Iron

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Now that is bloody ugly. Hahahaha

Never mind, it's what's on the inside that counts.

10/10 for cool ugly factor.
