Background :  Aside from audio guru Yasui Akira,  Kizuka Shigeru was another prolific contributor to Japan audio magazines. He published his designs in Radio Technology Japan Magazine ( sometimes called Craft Audio). He also wrote books for audio amateurs back in 1970's. His focus was on power amplifiers, in particular complementary symmetric structure and multiple power amplfiers for electronic crossover systems. 


This design has a lineage of Yasui Akira and Hiraga power amplifier architecture. This power amp is unique in the sense that the output devices are lateral mosfets( originally 2SK134/J49 and now we replaced with 2Sk1058/J162). This simplifies the biasing scheme and without worry for thermal runaway even operating at a moderate power ( 45Wrms at +/-38Vdc) at high biasing( quiescent current 250mA ).


Sound performance : the amplifier gives a wide-open and relax sound similar to Hiraga with the added bass authenticity from lateral mosfet. 


If you are looking for a medium power amplifier with simple circuitry , very good sound and tired of hugh heatsink as in Pass amps, then this can be your next project.
