I know, you first answered to my comment about the NOS parts not meeting specs but the Asian parts did meet spec.

The only part which is somewhat difficult to source is the 2N5457 -- and it's not as if sourcing an N-channel JFET with these specs is that difficult. There is a surface mount version and a strip of 25 will cost less than a pack of cigarettes. The 2n5460 isn't difficult to source -- Mouser has over 3,000 in stock.

For some strange reason there seems to have been a run on these jFETs at DigiKey which used to have a lot of them. As of a moment ago -- JAMECO Elect. has 149 of 2N5457 at a higher price than Digikey - 69 cents. Better hurry.

I know, this is the nth time it's been stated on here about alternative parts, but I'm OCD and first wanted to build it as Mr. Marsh did, so when he said he bought the parts on ebay, I did that as well. (yeah, very OCD!)

However, I have bought the smt versions as well and will also try that in the near future. With all these amps I will be building, I'm gifting them away to my kids and my nieces and nephews who would appreciate something like this.

Default Linear Audio at AES in SF

BTW, I will have a shared booth with Elektor USA and AudioXpress at this weeks' AES convention in SF.

If you plan to go there, be sure to stop by at booth 1230 for a chat or some serious auduio discussions!

I will also have Bob Cordell's VinylTrak prototype from LA Vol 4 on display.

If you meant Futurlec, then beware of fakes!

yes, I bought some of the jfets from Futurlec and the vast majority were duds. Unless you want to practice soldering TO-92's in boards!
