I have such to visually compare too. But better we take that to the sticky thread: My Transistors, original or copy?

Hi

Here is the photo of my 2SK170.

If it's not toshiba, could it be genuine 2SK170 from another maker ?

Thanx

Paul

Hi

I've just look in a box of old amps boards and I found six 2SK170 on one amp board.

I have done again the IDSS test, using a 9 volt battery, and it have a IDSS of arround 5.3 ma for all those six 2SK170

They have a bit low IDSS, but can I use those 2SK170 for the B1 ?

Thanx

Paul

Hi

And how about the six 2SK170 I found on one amp board, they have a IDSS of arround 5.3 ma, can they be ok for the B1 ?

Thanx

If they are GR then that IDSS is in range. If they are marked BL then that IDSS tells they are wrong parts.
5.3mA is for Yfs ~30 which is not low in general although a 9mA BL gets you to ~40. That figure is the "amplifying might" of the part. In B1 all this is utilized as current drive, the more its got the less THD and output impedance it presents, but bit more input capacitance. And more IDSS that goes with the territory ups the TO-92 cased JFET's heat dissipation too. B1 was designed around BL grade, 8-9mA is a good compromise. V grade would need a cooling aid without giving analogous gain in might because the Yfs curve tappers off as it ascends its scale. All in all, its you compromise by a margin if going with GR but you still got a B1. Although on the somewhat weaker performance side.

Hi

I've look and those six 2SK170 are GR grade.

So with those jfet I would have much more thd in my B1 ?

Thanx

Preferable than the 3mA ones.
