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.

A seemingly simple circuit with only two components, an op-amp and a feedback resistor, is commonly used to convert a current to a voltage. This circuit is familiar as a photodetector or impedance-meter current-sense amplifier.
Oscilloscope triggering circuits can be adapted to other applications, as precision synchronizers. Both analog and digital ‘scope triggering has been enhanced by various auto-trigger schemes. This tutorial overview of ‘scope triggering circuits and schemes presents the basics of trigger generators and also some enhancements

In this part, we push forth to transfer functions in s and z of ADCs and DACs, then consider briefly how to design feedback loops that span the analog-digital boundary.
