Applying cathode feedback (putting the cathode bypass cap to Speaker terminal in stead of ground) gave me ~7.8 db of NFB, I think I am going to try and reduce that to ~3db with a capacitive voltage divider. However Preliminary listening is disappointing, It sounds Kinda like a bad "Sand" amp, distortion is defiantly characteristic of Negative feedback being present. I am going to try a voltage divider to bring that feedback down, but It looks like Zobel is going to be the answer...
