SanKen transistors (A1492 & C4883A)
Hi all, new poster...

I couldn't find anything on this but do please point me in the right direction in case I've missed it.

Am having problems locating a supplier of SanKen transistors in the UK. I only need two, an A1492 and a C4883A. I believe the actual model numbers are 2SA1492 and 2SC4883A respectively. I have the data sheets from SanKen but the only supplier I could find was over in the US and only in quantities of 25 or 50, at a minimum cost of $113.50. Surely there's a supplier of smaller quantities?

FYI, the transistors are from a Wharfedale EVP-15PSB. One leg of each transistor has broken away from the body, causing the speaker to cut in/out, quite explosively.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Why have the legs of these transistors come away from the body?

Has the amp been shorted or abused and caused the devices to explode?
