Diamond jfet/bjt headphone buffer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

this idea is swap input transistor of traditional diamond buffer with jfet

That probably works but is not a diamond buffer.
You have to flip the positions of the jets and move the current sources
To the bases of the output transistors

actually that schematic has a number of problems.

 

This is what you want.

and then you can add a servo around it and drive the current source

to maintain 0 volts dc on the output.

 

performance about .005% thd, and flat to 20khz.

HELLO KEVIN!
tries to mimic the pattern without current source (no with fet)
and with the bootstrap (the voltage is lowered to 12V)
I think it is better for several reasons
