Default Class B without takeover distortion

Here's a old circuit I came across that is different from most. Has anyone built up this one or anything like it? It's almost asking me to put a pair of N-channel hexfets in it. Wouldn't be hard either.

Sorry boys,

Are these posts meant to provide any information?
Am I supposed to understand what you are telling?

I this kind of schematic something which is indeed useable, or is it some curiosity of the past (I'll spice it to give it a try)?

Regards,
Dirk

The reason I posted it was simply for people to look at something a bit different and perhaps use any ideas from it for their own projects. Besides, I had not built anything like it before and was hoping someone else could give me an opinion on it.

It is a bit unusual. Even Mr. Pass mistook it for a 1940's type particle accelerator

Hi alfsch,
How about giving details about the circuit u have built? It will add something to our knowledge.

Could it be something similar to the Quad 405 technique?

Yeah, c'mon alfsch. We want to know all about your amp!

e96mlo, from what little I know of the Quad 405 it used a big ugly amp sort of paralleled with a very refined but much smaller amp. Kind of like a husband and wife team (you figure which is which!). If you do a search on "current dumping" you should find some stuff on this.
