Default Reliable source for PHILIPS SAA7220P/B

I'm looking for a genuine PHILIPS SAA7220P/B... there are quite some for sale on ebay but all in China and I don't know if they are the original IC's.
Anyone bought from China or knows a good source?

naks.com and vintagecassette.com my websites dedicated to Cassette Decks!

They are not so much fakes because of the low demand and because, being purely in digital domain, there was no "selection" process to get the best parts - like on the analog (DAC). But, yes trust it is a real problem.

My case: I am looking now to buy some PCM61P-K and I can find them only in China. What's not to say they stamped a -K on the cip?

cd player at rommelmarkt, kringloop or marktplaats. just check the model, from the right era nearly all philips players are fine. There must be many thousands in the netherlands

Hi - I bought one of these and can confirm that it worked perfectly. I did break it eventually but I think it was my own stupidity rather than a faulty part!

They do also come up now and again from people breaking cd players, one went in the last couple of days (along with the SAA 7030) for 6.60 inc. postage (UK).

Cheer, Josh

@Guido Yeah got some players from those sources, but want to buy a fresh IC which saves the work of desoldering!
@Josha, thanks for the tip, ordered from that seller!
