Re: The Deacy Amp
The class-B push-pull transformer isolated power amplifier was very popular in portable transistor radios. When I started playing guitar my first amp was the output stage savaged from one old VEF-206 radio (from the former USSR). I only used it for studying. It was a very low power amplifier but provided nice undistorted and overdriven sounds, even small speaker and the awful guitar I had at that time.

That radio was very very popular at that time. My father still has several of them at home. These are some pictures from Inet:







The schematic of an even older version (VEF 202):

The Deacy Amp
Dennis

Knowing that I am originally from Rhodesia, Michael Dunn sent this link to me about the "Deacy" amplifier that Brian may used. It appears that not all of Brian May's activities were based in theory! Aside from its country of origin in deepest darkest Africa, I think it is still interesting for all readers of Planet Analog.

Previously we looked at the electronics and sensors involved in data acquisition systems (DASs). Now we look at what to do with the raw ADC data once it is acquired.
This is a tutorial presentation of principles of instrumentation that is typically multi-channel, medium to high resolution (12 to 20 bits) and relatively slow - slower than oscilloscopes in sample rate
Continuing the chat from last time, we turn now to a circuit-related topic, that of current waveforms. The typical converter input waveform is shown with a static (dc) component and a ripple (ac) component
Semiconductor companies have now had fully-differential amplifiers in their product lines for a few years, though these amplifiers have been in leading-edge electronics for decades. These diff-amps are differential not only at their input but also at their output, doubling output range.
