Default small, but high quality amp

Hi,
I'm looking for schematics or general design remarks about amp designs for portable gear (not necessarily battery powered though)

So far I've been playing around with those hybrid modules like the LM1875 or TDA1562 but I'm not really happy with their sound so I'm looking for alternatives, even if it means going discrete

hope this is the right place to ask
thanks
Sukandar

Too many parts. Take out about half a dozen and it'll sound even better.

Yep....If I could find a xfmr that would give me an about x10 voltage gain. With maybe 10 kOhm in? More realistically perhaps 600 Ohm in......... and drive the fets ........

IMO these outputs are the greatest thing since peanut butter. This circuit is a little differant in that it uses feedback.

Well, if you're using a digital source, your Red Book output is 2 volts RMS. To get your 6 watts or so, you'd only need a gain of 5.

I finally got 'round to ordering up the transformers so should let you know how it sounds in a couple weeks. I've already done a lower current version (about 160mA) using 1:1 transformers for driving headphones and it sounds fantastic. Just need to scale it up with some 1:5 transformers and higher current output devices.
