I use lsk in lieu of the Toshiba 2sk.
They substitute as claimed in the datasheet.

Hi MASantos

The original ( and regarded THE BEST ) Toshiba brand part is easily available on eBay.
Just eBay search 2SK170.
No need for LT re-models.
Check eBay seller Polida ( or many others ).
I just bought 10 ( & will probably buy more depending on matching ).

ORIGINAL Toshiba 2SK170-BL...' Polida ' ( eBay seller ) 10 of 2.50p inc delivery, about 2.5 Euros.
Cheap as chips !
Simples.

Although 'adequate' many have commented that the 'subjective' sound quality of the LT remodels is poor by comparison.

Cheers

Si.

Have you measured those you got from ebay that all fall in the IDSS range that Toshiba manual defines as BL?

Keep in mind, cowboy legged K170s coming off an ammo tape strip are usually less likely to be counterfeit. The little circle at their curved back must have no symbol inside, and you can usually see a little copperish hue at the leads point of exit from the plastic.

Hi Space Egg,

I had already looked at ebay,but am always afraid of fakes, no matter the sellers say and whatnot. I have been on ebay again and found these:
100x 2SK170 K170 BL 6 12mA | eBay
which are the cowboy legged ones, what do you think?

please let me know after you test the ones you bought from polida if they are genuine.

zhoufang is also a member here and has original parts.
Zhou Fang's sales thread! - Parts you always wanted but hard-to-get, they are here!
I see though that he hasn' t reply to this forum for some time, so be cautious.
