Some Ideas on Temperature Compensation for Audio Amplifier EF Triples

Temperature compensating an EF3 audio power amplifier output stage is not a trifling task.¬† There are 6 Vbe junctions, running at 3 different current densities, different temperatures and neither is the thermal performance of the heatsink assembly characterized In most DIY cases. This makes deploying a conventional 2 transistor¬† Vbe spreader (or Vbe multiplier as […]

Small Signal Audio Line Stage Buffer/Headphone Amplifier

This design, which I completed in 2010, takes an LM4562 and marries it to a hefty single ended class A output stage, which can be biased up for either 50 mA or 110 mA. The output stage is included in the global feedback network and can achieve 1 ppm at 20 kHz  into 600 Ohms […]
