Thanks Boscoe __________________ Audio projects and more: gswdh.co.uk

You need to know the effective impedance of the CCS then it's an easy sum. If you have no physical emitter resistor then it comes down to the value of the intrinsic "little Re" as our lecturer used to call it, of the BJT. __________________ www.readresearch.co.uk my website for UK diy audio people - designs, PCBs, modules and more.

That is almost impossible, if the load is only the output EF. So the gain depended by the input impedance of the EF, divided by the total emitter resistance. But the input impedance is depended by the load, the output current, the temperature. So it's not easy to predict.
You apply fixed resistors from the VAS output to the ground, and if this resistor is small enough (1/10 of the worst case input impedance of the output EF) it will depend the gain.
