Question Fake or Real?

Hi, I have the impression the darker green ones (bottem line) are fake. Anyone?
Or did Toshiba change the molding compund at a certain point in time?

Without having the answer, I would say that the ones on the bottom has a very poor molding quality

Hi Jan, Yes the lower ones have the molding compound splashed over the tab. The upper ones are totally clean.
Also the lower ones have small indents that the upper ones do not have.
The lower ones do work in my amp but I will try the upper row also and listen to the difference.

I also notised those small dots from the mold

It could be interesting if you can hear any difference, however telling the difference may be impossible

Interesting in this connection is you specified MJE15032 and MJE15033 for the VAS in Krell clone. I would rather use something like the displayed Toshibas. Any reason for your choice?
If I don't hear any difference there is no point to bother.

The short answer:
No reason

The lang one:
There are two "reasons" why I used the MJE's. I have good experience with these, and they are the sort of devices that "could" have been used originally in the Krell

Regarding your listening test, I would still say that you need to have two amps (with different trannises) lined up in a blind listening test to even have a change to tell them apart

People has the tendensy to not be objective (but subjective), so if they think (or have been told) that this amp has better trannies, they would say that this sound better...

Default Fake or Real?

Jan,
You switched the u and the o in the last quote. Not really inportant to me.
I can try the MJE parts too as I have plenty of these.
Why bother with blind listening tests? I am am the only one listening to my amp. This machine is for listening pleasure so if I like it is is good to me regardless what visitors tell me or double blind listening tests reveal.

Thanks for pointing out my typing mistake

I feel the same way as you regarding the sound of my gear...
If I like it, I give a damn what other thinks
