While waiting for more boards, I made some of my own.
The toner transfer isn't going well for me yet so I carved some with a dremel by hand,
looks like the work of Fred Flinstone...but it works. I really want a CNC for this.

Mouser is out of the 2sk170 Toshiba's and in the F5 thread Mr Pass said the Fairchild J111 could be used.
F5 power amplifier

Is there something I have to change for it to work?
The pinout is different but I have accounted for that.
It could be something with my boards that I don't see, haven't found yet but the last set worked fine.
I ran out of the 170"s so purchased 50 of the J111's

The ACA makes a great little headphone amp, all my friends like the sound of it, the F5 is better though.

Thank you

I used an MPF102. You can find them at Radio Shack. Idss was around 10mA. I would think a J111 would have too high an Idss.

Default JFET Substitutions?

I'm finally ready to stuff the boards I got for Christmas but I've run into a snag with the input JFETs.

I've seen only the above two recommendations for subs for the 2SK170.

Can we get a list going of known acceptable substitutes?

What are the critical specs for this part in this location?

Well buying from overseas is one option....

Another is to use what I have:
MPF102 with Idss= 2 - 20mA
MPF4392 with Idss = 25 - 75mA
J201 with Idss = .1 - 1mA

Or if these don't work go with the recommended part:
2SK170 with Idss = 2.6 - 20mA

Or the F5 substitute:
J111 with Idss = 20mA

Based on Idss it looks like Loudthud's recommendation is the best choice but what other specs should I look at to compare?
