Default MJL4281A & MJL4302A transistors - UK supplier?

Has anyone found a UK supplier for these ?
All my usual sources have drawn a blank.

Thanks, Frank

OK, I'll reply to myself.
AFAIK, these semiconductors are not available in the UK.

You can get them shipped to the UK from http://www.digikey.com/ but it will cost you $26 postage.

Did you know Digikey have a UK website? Might save on shipping that way.

Also there is the OnSemi samples programme...

Hi,
Digikey is very UK unfriendly.
As well as bumping up their UK prices to way above the US$ price they add on what appears to be extorionate delivery charges and small order charges.

It appears that they are simply exporting from the US and charging like all the other money grabbers do. Converting from US$ to UK£ with a currency conversion of worse than 1:1.

I have, as a result, kept clear of them as a supplier.

Thanks for the warning Andrew. Practices like that really annoy me.

Thanks guys.
I did look at the UK Digikey site and it suddenly started pricing in $US so I think you are correct. They just import from the US.

Hi,
just got a chance to look up my UK paper catalogue.
£12 del charge from Falls US.
£10 handling charge.
both +VAT
£3.99 each or £36.44 for 10

Buy 6pairs for a stereo 3pair and the bill comes to £82.11, that's about $12.60 each. ouch!
That's almost five times OnSemi's guide price.

I even considered a bulk order of over £100 to avoid the charges but their UK pricing policy still made it uneconomic. I would have to be desperate to support Digikey.

Have you tried OnSemi's website. You can request samples or, I believe, buy from them directly if you're opposed to asking for freebies. I am not sure about shipping costs, etc., but it might be worth a look.

SteveA

PS, they list the devices at USD 2.50 each

If Onsemi only provide large quantities from their website, I would certainly be interested in partaking in a GB GB if anyone would organise one.

So there IS a UK demand for them....
I searched right here and found a private seller in the US who had 10 pairs for sale. He's just sent them so when they arrive, I should have some spares.
