PA4 - 2x300W/4ohm Solid State Power Amplifier

This amplifier was inspired by conversation with John Curl in a ‘Blowtorch thread’, as well as by his thoughts ( http://www.parasound.com/pdfs/JCinterview.pdf ).

The aim was to build a reliable, solid, good sounding amplifier. Topology of the amplifier is complementary differential, with JFET input, MOSFET cascode and VAS, and BJT output stage with 4 pairs of 15A transistors.

Simplified, basic schematics is shown in the following image:
