Question no current mirror, current mirror, cascoded current mirror, bjt or jfet VAS?

Hi Guys,
i started my tests with Borbely super buffer topology. But i modified the OLG because i thing that 40dB of feedback is too high and drop to 15dB. I checked hte FFT with my cd player with cd test at 1Khz to 0dB because i don't have a good sine wave generator and he has 0.0068% THD. I have cheap PS with regulator 7812 and 7912. The output for my all test is 2V rms. Any comments is welcome. Thank You! Maxpou

Hi Peufeu,
because in my experience, i have a better sound when i reduce OLG in my cd player, line stage, power amp and i listen a old audioresearch 100.2 ( 6 dB of feedback) in my friend home and i loved the sound. I listened the Ayre audio system too and my jaw fell to the ground. So because I find it difficult to build a pre-amp without feedback I want to reduce as much as possible. thank you! Maxpou
