If you buy the RIFAs in an expensive place in Sweden they are about USD 30 at qty 1 and USD 27 at qty 10.

UrSv,

Is there a good chance to find them surplus in Europe?

The only place I know of is www.svalander.se (there are
english pages for the shop) but he has mostly high-voltage
types.

I actually live just over an hours drive from the Rifa head office,
which is also a production plant, but I guess I would not find
a shop selling cheap electrolytics there.

I'm not surprised. I also thought that I would be able to buy Atlas air tools cheap in Sweden, but they were more expensive than in America.

I think you should go for 548 or (if you want more power) 549.
In fact I'm just listening to OPA548, and I like it very much. OPA548 can be used exactly the same way like the GC with LM3875, except that you have connect pins 3 & 4 (leave pin 7 open or break it off).
OPA549 can roughly be used the same way, but you have to provide extra GROUND, and also connect Ilim to V-

I would say that both are at least equal to LM3875, if not better (BurrBrown has an excellent reputation for it's audio ICs, and both ICs are (correct me if I'm mistaken) newer developments than the often used National ones...

I will definitely check out 549, as well...

Bye,
Arndt

For surplus (albeit new) Svalander is only place I know of. As I have posted before there is a guy at http://www.hififorum.nu/ that sells some really cheap. USD 10.50 for the 10.000 uF/63V or USD 70 for 8 pieces. He also had 82000 uF/63 V at USD 41 each or USD 140 for 4 peices. That's pretty cheap.
