Default XVR1 active crossover, discrete active stage

Hello,
does anyone have a real circuit diagram of the active stages in the pass labs XVR1.
There is a general schematic but it has no parts list.
Any ideas would be helpfull.

In my quest for a buffer, I have made this up so far.
This is only a draft. I have not yet build it.

Regards

Thumbs up does anyone have a real circuit diagram of the active stages

I'll bet Passlabs does.........

That´s about what I also had in mind, I was trying to find the correct resistor values today in simulation. Have you simulated or built thic circuit yet ?

Mr. Pass does this circuit have anything to do with the new active crossover that will be posted soon, or will that one be totaly different ?

As I mentioned before I have not build it. Yet.

Just simulation. Load was 100 Ohm and up. The "simetrix" phase margin shows around 50 deg. -3db down at aprox. 900khz.
Not to bad, I think.

Let's put some better transistors in, and this could become a real circuit.

Regards

I am trying to make a dicrete opamp like this for an analog output for a new DAC I am building. It has 4 opamps int original design and I dont want to use them. I prefer to put a discrete stage instead.
I saw the simplified circuit in the Pass active crossover. I think it is what I want. I also like the Borbeley FET cascode line stages but are not quite my taste.
What you designed is really really good.
the 2SK389 is one of the best around and the BC550C are also low noise very good transistors. Do you mean to change the output transistors ?
The BC337 and BC327 are also very good high current BJTs.
The specs you say are very good. I will try to simulate it and tell you what I got. How do you simulate the 2sk389 btw?

transistors
J.A.Pan makes some realy nice ones. So does zetex.
You could ask H.H. (sorry Harry, just teasing).
There is a list of really nice devices somewhere on this forum.

For the 2sk389, I use a model. If you can't find it, I can post it.

I forgot this:

I think it is Mr. Nelson Pass or someone else at PassLabs who designed this circuit. I just did a simple implementation to start with.

Regards

Of course this is from Passlabs, i know that. I use circuit maker to do my designs and the 2sk389 is not included in the library databank. can I use two normal fets instead ?

model for 2sk389

.model J2sk389 NJF(Beta=51.76m Rs=8.008 Rd=8.008 Betatce=-.5 Lambda=11.22m
+ Vto=-.5275 Vtotc=-2.5m Cgd=18.28p M=.3367 Pb=.3905 Fc=.5
+ Cgs=20.07p Isr=112.8p Nr=2 Is=11.28p N=1 Xti=3 Alpha=10u Vk=100
+ Kf=92.85E-18 Af=1)


Drop two of these in, after you have added this model to your simulator, or one of its library's.

Hope this helps.
