Hi guys,
I just updated the schematic, added the clamping on the gates and changed the decoupling capacitor in the FB to the same value as the input one (c2 and c3).

Sorry.
Never mind.

I've just done a quick sim of the circuit in post #1 for a starting point using laterals. The circuit as is doesn't run and the output sticks at the rails. R8 (10K) is the culprit. Its too high. Anything below 5 k runs and the amp works OK. I haven't time tonight to look at anything else on it but I will be interested to see how it performs, how it performs lateral vs HEXFET and how it compares to a new design I'm just toying with :)

It's interesting with those poorly translated to english sites where I found that circuit, it seems as if they, in general, deliberately screws something up in the design so that it doesn't work, I've seen lots of designs where one of the output transistors have drain source/collector emitter swapped for instance, with this design it's the resistors...

It's a nice circuit, I really like the simplicity of it, regarding laterals for this circuit wouldn't it just be a matter of biasing them with a different voltage or how?
Why would you choose laterals and not hexfets, something with distortion?

Some quick sims here for anyone interested. It might be possible to greatly improve on the performance but as it stands its not good. Seems to be a lack of current drive for the gate capacitance of the FET's for one thing.

You asked earlier about choosing Laterals... well for me they are the device of choice for output stages :) Last two plots show a lateral design.
