Default When returning to use the scope plugged to the amplifier i will produce the picture

The amplifier will remain playing music, continuously, over a load or using speaker till wednesday.... soon you will have the picture.

The simulator image is fine, and if i can remember the waveshape was fine too.

Carlos

not a good idea at all, sorry..
lower gain vas transistor means more current pumped from the
differential, increasing the output DC offset, not to mention higher
THD..better to use vas emitter degeneration and, as as proposed by BV,
with cdom of higher value, 47 to 68 pF , along with getting rid of the
100pf shunt compensation cap, as it s connected on one of the worst
path, in respect of global feedback efficency...

Default Do it the way you want dear Wahab, but do it instead to go analising

What about to listen?... to hold some soldering iron.....and then you can try several options, the correct and wrong options....you may confirm, giving a nice check up into the theories.

Enjoy the sonics.

regards,

Carlos

Default Here you have, i have cutted and continue to play stable, but i will not take the

risk....will solder it once again

it is the one out of focus, the small ceramic one.

But do that in your own amplifiers, install pressing your finger tip over the ceramic and remove it, just bent it to the circuit and return...please, use a non magnetic tool..plastic or wood.

And listen..then return to me to say that i must remove the unit.

Will stay....and check by yourselves, a excelent chance to check some beliefs, rules of thumbs and theories into real life..difference is audible.

regards,

Carlos

it s already done, carlos...i didn t manage to do better since
1990...i m still sticking with the amp i then designed and built..
i had no simulator at the time, but as i recently simulated it, i found
that it was useless to try to improve it...
must admit that i was very influenced by well known designers, and i
took it as a chance to read their guidelines,as it spared me a lot of time
and deceptions...

regards,

wahab

Default Fine dear Wahab...in 1990 i started the second marriage

and also started to work to Sony Corporation, sadly was not audio, was Video Professional..but helped me a lot to scape to the audio laboratories in Japan.

One year after the third son born, and i started to became a little bit old, but thinking into the third marriage and one more daugther.

ahahahahahah!

Here is the capacitor, sound was different, and heatsink started to be too much hot....soldered in place once again, with reduce gain and so on, but stable and sounding much better.

Of course was tried from base to colector...but resulted better this way.

regards,

Carlos

there s some components values that make your amp unbalanced..
it works relatively well because the negative feedback
correct these nonlinearities permanently, at the expense of stability, thus
requiring a hard compensation scheme...

wahab

You speak to us like we never made any amps?? I built 6 + of these self amps.
Click the image to open in full size.

Wahib is right , higher gain is good .. but not too high. In the amp above I finally used a single 2sc3503 (300 gain) instead of EF for VAS with 68p CDOM. 2sc1845/2sa992
(2n5550/5551 will do) as current mirror/LPT ... 80-90db OLG. This is not analysis , this is a real amp that works , daughter is playing games using it NOW...
I also built the same amp as above with bootstrap like your new one and it had better bass but clean highs just like the CCS 'ed VAS (original self amp).

Default Sorry folks, that capacitor is connected to ground, so, it is a miller spreaded

One to the VAS first stage (100pf) and other to the VAS second stage.

Error into the schematic and will be soon fixed.

That capacitor was never connected to the negative rail.... error into the schematic, my mistake.

The schematic was correct, error was into the board layout i have produced.

regards,

Carlos

the result is the same, safe that connected to ground
it has to stand the full rail voltage rather than 1.2V when connected
to the negative rail...
