Default Ultimate Amplifier

Hi there!

Has anyone ever built the Emory Cook/Gus Jose "Ultimate Amp" partly described in the attached? Is there any reason to build it now?

I have the rest of the article, the parts list and the schematic if anyone is interested.

Lacking a magnifying glass ...

I suspect you would get more replies if the attachment was readable.

Seems interesting, but I'm usually wary of negative feedback.

I would be quite interested to see the final circuit diagram and indeed the arguments for it.

Meanwhile, reading the first two paragraphs, the temptation to add (get on with it - ED) was almost overwhelming.

Bit of a waffler eh?

"But now, pilot lights in the eyes of circuit-designers ..."

Oh dear!

Never take advice from someone who thinks 'comprised of' is English!

I think the author is getting around to describing (eventually) how to add some current NFB to an amp that uses voltage NFB, to improve damping factor. In fact, a number of commercial amps did just that and they usually made the 'damping factor control' adjustable, to suit the speaker in use. Maybe the speakers of the day needed it, I don't know, but the idea seems to have been discontinued decades ago.

What's not English about "comprised of"?

"Comprising" or according to context, "Comprised" is enough; the "of" is superfluous - indeed tautological!

Somewhat akin to "foot pedal". English is indeed a strange language, even for the the native speaker. Imagine learning it as a second or third language.
