Question LM3875TF source in / near UK etc

What is wrong with England? I have a king sized headache from trying to source LM3875TF here, 3875T - no problem other than I don't want them. Pleeease can someone help me out here? Also anyone know a sourceof caddock / vishay resistors here other than audiocom?
Anyone else got any Rehdeko's? Got my 115's a couple of weeks ago after much searching and they are amazing (at what they do).
Any help much appreciated, Cheers, Ian

The bad news is, that comes from the Newark warehouse along with a massive shipping charge.

Hi Ian.

Nick recently did a group buy of various components including the LM3875TF. I don't know if he got any spare to pass on, but it would be worth asking him.

If not, then perhaps Brian and someone over here will be doing another group buy if this first one proves successful.

Worst case, and depending on how many you want, I may be able to spare a few.

30 seconds before reading that post, I had an email from Brian stating that he was placing another order!

Brian can supply the insulated chips and Caddock resistors (and other bits) so if there is enough interest, we will do another group order!

So any UK builders looking for bits that they cannot source over here, contact me with your requirements via my web site contact form.

What are you complaining about?
I can't find any of those here.
TDA chips I can find everywhere.
Well... I guess European brands (Philips, ST...) always had better distribution in Europe...
It would be really nice to drive 5 minutes and get some LM3886 chips, I always get them abroad...

Hi,
I too am interested in knowing sources for getting Electronic parts and chips in the UK. I'm trying to help out a friend, who currently is based in cambridge. Any pointers in and around that place or other good suppliers in the UK. Excuse me 'coz i'm not very familiar with the place. Of course googling helps, but nothing to beat the experience of you guys..!

Also I would appreciate if some one could send me possible sources for good Subwoofers like the Siva/NHT etc etc and other drivers.

Many thanks
ajju

Buying online is just about the only option in the UK if you don't live near to a store like Maplin (and even they are reducing their range of components).

Farnell, RS, CPC and Maplin all have online sales.

Both Farnell and RS stock the 3875T, but the TF is difficult to buy.

Do you really want to use the TF? The isolated package has much poorer thermal conductivity to the heatsink than using the 'T' and a thermal washer. (This is from the data sheet).

If you are planning to run the amp at all hard I would still suggest the 'T' version and a modern flexible insulating washer. (Not messy mica + thermal compound).
