bias help
in an amplifier like the one shown in the att. i am about to replace obsolete transistors

Also i have to do plenty of metalwork to create space enough to fit them

Question is how i am going to be able to adjust idle for this amplifier ???

here is the

I only see the potential to change the current and Vbe of Q009 and Q010 via resistors marked *R019 and *R018 but I suspect you already knew that.

Hope this helps

Unusual centre driven bias
That is a somewhat unusual bias circuit, what is it from?
I am interested in "centre driven" bias circuitry like this for use in amps with complementary LTPs but it seems unneeded complexity here.
Does anyone know what it is intended to achieve or have any references?
R020 / R022 and R025 / R026 also would seem to set the current.
Perhaps related to power supply noise rejection?
Current thru *R018 and *R019 will be modulated by supply noise.
I will think more if no one has the answer!

Best wishes
