This reduces the feedback, which increases the distortion so that it's above the residual of the test equipment.

Since the noise is magnified 60dB, will it interfere with the measurement, like in FFT?

I was interested by the bootstrapped current mirror in the one stage topology mentionned in appendix B. Are there discrete implementations of it ?

Well, the noise will get worse, but according to his text, he imports the raw data into the MATLAB program and does a bunch of averaging and filtering to reduce it. I gather the noise is less of a problem than the residual distortion of the AP System 1.

OPA211, THS4031, OPA827, OPA2822, OPA842 from TI
ADA4899-1, AD823, AD8066, AD8610, AD8599 from Analog Devices
EL2227 from Signetics/Elantec

...and probably more...
...5562, CA3140. The last one has an excellent for audio output stage, but noisy input.

CA3140 - I have evaluated a few samples from Signetics and I was not happy with. The output stage might be very good, but it's a slow opamp, to slow to avoid slew rate induced distortions.

5562 - What is this?

In applications where I use them 15V/uS is enough.

Oops... Sorry for the typo, I mean 4562

LM4562 is (AC) identical to the already tested LME49860. The slightly higher supply voltage allowed by the LME49860 is most likely the result of sorting the chips.

This explains a call I got the other day. Did anyone notice the unbiased and unbypassed 6800uF caps in the test circuits?

Unbiased, do you mean the + of the 6800uF should be more positive than the - of the 6800uF? How can we do it in a simple cct?
