Another new wrinkle, along with a further set of tweaks - in the circuit below, the sonics (as well as THD) can be tuned by adjusting a single resistor, R18. If it's low, the H2 component is significant, but the THD is also higher - similar to the classic JLH1969. By increasing R18, it's possible to progressively lower the THD, but at the cost of decreasing the H2/H3 ratio.

In principle, it's possible to have a selector switch (or maybe a CD4066 quad-bilateral switch) to select the desired sonics from the front panel - say Classic JLH, Normal or Low-Distortion; or maybe even a log-potentiometer.

Here's the simulated 16W THD20 FFT at ~ -60 dB THD (R18 ~= 4.7k):

An idea for input bootstrapping on the original 4 transistor JLH topology follows - this is only a concept for simulation, although it could be built to deliver >2.5W into 4 ohms with a single +12v rail.

The main idea here is to increase the input impedance sufficiently to allow the use of a small input coupling capacitor, which could be high quality, e.g. styroflex or silver mica.
