RE: I'm only talking about power amps.

Thanks for the summary of the path from the microphone; very informative.

Presumably there is quite a bit of analogue processing after the DAC in the home CD player? Low-pass filtering to block the digitisation artifacts, and so on? Op-amps, typically?

What I'm thinking, then, is that probably at the two ends of the chain (microphone amplifier, and output stages of the CD player) the typical setup will involve op-amps, with the usual very large negative feedback applied. I'm just wondering where that leaves the people who argue that negative feedback is a bad thing.
