Default dual N Channel Jfet

Has anyone used something like this for a differential front end? Any reason why this part would not be ideal?

Default a little better


This firm is located in California. They are now producing under
license the Toshiba 2SK389. These are dual matched JFETs
but much higher gfs than the U401s, this means much lower noise.

In addition, this firm is also making the 2SK170, which is a high gfs single JFET found alot in MC phono stages and what not.

As far as I know, the only other producer of these devices in
North America is InterFET (Texas) - but they will only sell minimum
200 ct orders. Linear will do samples as well as smaller qtys.
You can request up to 5 ct as samples too which is nice.

Another part out there is the 2N5566. However, the 2SK389
outguns that as well as your U401.

I'll hijack this thread, since I don't appear to be able to start my own:

I'm building a phantom powered impedance converter (instrument input to XLR balanced) and settled on a JFET buffer design similar to what used to get put on FET probes for scopes.

Now I am finding that the Dual Matched JFETs are not readily available. Is there a good source for these things, or is it time to redesign using MOSFETs?

There seem to be a lot of dual N-channel MOSFETs out there....
