Default Need an all NPN (Quasi) ops power amp

Hi guys,

Can someone please point me where I can find an all NPN (quasi) output power amp? Power output from 40W up is preferable. An all 2N3055 amp maybe? A full discrete or opamp frontend will also be helpful.

Thanks in advance!

JojoD

hi jojo,

just about any complimentary output design can be converted to a qauasi-complimentary one to use all npn output trannies...

this is done by changing the pnp output and drivers from a darlington to cfp pair wherein the base of the npn output trannie is driven from the collector of the driver which is a pnp....

early pioneer amps like the sx-770 used this type of outputs...

hope this helps...

Default Hello!

joan2,

Thanks for the very quick response! If it's not too much trouble, would it be possible for you to send me some of your amp schematics? My email, jojod818@yahoo.com

Thanks!
JojoD

I'd be interested too in the schematic.

I have a PDF file with an all 2N3055 in the outputstage.
Too large to post it, tell me if you're intersted, I'll send it per eMail.
(in german, it is an old Elektor article).

Alfetta87,

Got the pdf, thanks! It's sad I can't read German but I think I can follow through. In the schematics, there are parts that are encircled using a pencil, protection circuit maybe, I wonder why?

Have you tried this amp?

Best Regards,
JojoD
