Default What should I do with extra transistors?

I'm a chipamp man (OK, I just built one, so far) and I don't know what to do.

I have a couple extra pairs of 2SC5424 and 2SA1962 transistors. I'd like to do something with them, but I have know clue. From the specs, they look pretty nice for an amp.

Does anyone know a good project with these for the occasional chimamper?

I know this may be the wrong forum, but before I post in the other forums, I want to see what you guys think.

You could do lots of stuff:

build a power amp as high quality as possible and compare with GCs
build a power amp especially for your tweeters (if any) and go active
subwoofer amp (current hungry - current ready)


Best regards

If you are a bigtime chipamp guy, put them on a chipamp! Some sort of unity follower type circuit, just for the current capacity... then run it into 2 ohms or so.
Jesus loves you.
