Class-A 100W Amplifier

Posted on Dec 19, 2012

A Class A // Class AB amplifier rated 100 Watts when driving a 4 ohm loudspeaker. This circuit developed out of my 30+ years of JLH class-A based investigations. The original `simple` 1969 JLH class-A design provided excellent first cycle accuracy through mid and high frequencies (dynamic clarity) because there were no stabilisation components nor a series output choke, whilst the NFB error correction was established via the input emitter (some describe this as current feedback).

However it did generate rather a lot of heat, the damping was `soft` at lower frequencies and the positive slew was weaker in the presence of loudspeaker system generated back-EMF at higher audio frequencies. I was eventually able to improve upo
