Default S.s. Preamplifier No Feedback O.c.l.

Hi!
I'm looking for a schematic of a all solid state preamplifier, with approx the following requirements:

- only B.J.T. (no I.C.)
- approx amplification factor 20 times
- max output around 30 volt at minimum THD possible
- Output and interstage Capacitor Less
- low output impedance (around 10 Ohm or less)
- 100% No feedback

No problems with the power supply and budget.

Any schematic or at least ideas?

Thank you, regards!

A couple questions.

Why do you need a 30 volt output? Most every power amp out there has an input sensitivity of around 1-2 volts. Or are you planning to drive some sort of unity gain power buffer?

Also, how literally do you mean "100% no feedback"? Do you mean not even an emitter follower or do you just mean no loop feedback?

Hi!
Thanks for reply.

1)Yes, I need this preamplifier as a voltage amplifier for a current BJT buffer with gain = 0.95 approx.

2)I meant no global feedback, no interstage feedback, but just (if necessary...) local, device feedback.

Any help?

Regards.

Ah, ok. Now that makes sense.

Ok, I see where you're coming from now.

Not sure yet. One more question. Do you have a schematic available for the BJT buffer you're using?

Hi!

The buffer I should drive, could be, approximately, the one I link to this message. It Is a stage found on the Net, I know lack in output protection and, eventually, a servo.

Carefully implemented, It works very well.

Now, we have to options:
- entering at same time on points "input A", in the preamplifier stage has two outputs,
- or entering, for example, on "input B", if the pre stage has only one output (Complementary BJT)

BUT, I don't want to use coupling capacitors.
And not I.C. Only BJT.

Sorry for beeing not so precise, and again thank you for reply!

Sorry, I don't know why for a 20K gif file the admin says "is too big..."

I'll try again later.

The maximum resolution is 800X600, 100Kb IIRC. This could be your problem.

May be this satisfy you?
Distortion 0.06% according to PSice.

Hello and thank you!

How much is in db the amount of interstage feedback?

In your proposal I must use, according to my schematic, the "INPUT B", is that right?

Is it possible to implemet the two "INPUT A", linking this to collectors of Q23 and Q27 on your schematic?

Thank you in advance for your kind answers!

Pardon, on more question:
I have got Micro Cap evaluation. Will your schematic work on it? And in this case, could you give me the usable file so I can try to simulate and link to it my buffer?
