Kenwood also has a similar regulation circuit called the VIG in the early 80's. It used the output current to increase the input differential pair's current, doing kind of providing positive feedback and thus regulation to the input pairs.

I guess they did so because typically Japanese manufactureres had to use puny PSU'd to keep shipping costs down.

Sorry for Digressing...

By definition, wouldn't every class AB amp have this intrinsic adaptive biasing?
