Default Son of Dork: Active Circuitry

The Son of Dork (SOD) project is the result of the diyAudio.com multi-channel preamp initiative (http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/showt...?threadid=3517). The project has been split into threads dedicated to discussion of the preamp's different functional units:

- General Discussion (project status, functional requirements)
- Active Circuitry
- Attenuator
- Power Supply
- Connections and Layout (including input switching)
- Chassis and Construction
- Hardware Logic, Controls, Display
- Microprocessor (programming, implementation)

I will be managing the project as a whole, as well as initially overseeing individual threads. For a background on the project, please see the original thread referenced above. A website dedicated to the project will be located at http://dorkus.org/diy/sod.

Let the fun begin!

the borberly DC-coupled FET line amp we were talking about (the one the single-ended guys didn't like ) is actually a tweaked-out version of the super buffer. the line amp includes source followers for additional output drive capability, and a servo for better DC stability. i suspect it sounds pretty good but i've never tried it, i'm probably going to try the full line amp version. check out the article on the borberly site on the all-FET line amp, from the 5/02 issue of AudioXPress, it mentions the super buffer.

Question Borbely line stage

Isn't that the same 12 year old circuit that HPotter posted in the previous thread on this topic?

I guess so. That circuit is 10 years old and looks better to me.
