oh man, that looks old, are thoose really silicon transistors? hmm well I guess it's possible.
I have two lm12's deep in the cellar, I'd like to do something like that with them some day just for the hell of it.. 80watt driving something hmm, that gives some weird thoughts in my head :-D

Default discrete op-amp --> the solution

Working voltage: +/-25v DC

http://www.bursonaudio.com/Burson_HDAM_Module.htm
http://www.audio-gd.com/enweb/pro/diy/OPA.htm

that is good to have an accurate VAS
with a domestic power

need just design a current stage in class A
easy with LED's polarization
you have to select numbers and color!

...the problem is thermal drift control
maybe a very big dissipator it's a way

or see this current stage with IGBT
The ThunderGold AMP

Default Re: IGBT version

Not quite sure why it is class A. The output stage is classA, what about the OPAMP, its crossover distortion will simply be amplified, what is the point?

Default Hi

i think the OP-Amp works in class A also final stage

see version two
maybe 5A biasing is too much?
(5A x 30V = 150W for one device on dissipator)
