Default Doug Self article in EETimes

He's focusing on power supply to solid-state amplifiers, and how to reject supply interference by proper amplifier design. Worth a read.

Parts 1 and 2 are excellent value too though I'm not totally in agreement with Doug's view that switch mode power supplies are undesirable for audio amps, and necessarily more expensive than unregulated linear supplies.
'The total potential here must be nothing less than astronomical.'
'Nothing less. The number 10 raised almost literally to the power of infinity.'

This material has already been published in EW+WW, March 1995. So, old wine in a new bottle. Besides, he doesn't even mention the most obvious and simple trick: a small cap, equal to Cdom, between the current mirror input and gnd. See also:

and here if TMC or TPC has been applied: Bob Cordell Interview: Negative Feedback

IMHO whilst Self's articles are very good and generally well researched he is guilty of propagating a "there is only ONE correct way of implementing any piece of circuitry and that's Doug Self's way" attitude.
In spite of this I am still very grateful to Self for those areas in which he has increased understanding for many people, including myself Even if I don't always agree with his viewpoint on matters such as Mosfets...
