Hi!

Hmmm, ok.
Sometimes i try different ideas, and get back to the original...
Another one... what if i replace the pass transistors with an Lm338 for both sides +/-V? So, lm317/337as regulators, and LM338 as pass transistor....

You'll have the same problem that LM338 is not really capable of handling the dissipation. Added complexity for no improvement otherwise.
