Default Old resistors

OK, dug up some more.

This time it's resistors.

All brand new.

What are these? Are they any good?

I have 10-20 different values

Regards TroelsM

Hi TroelsM,
Yes, those resistors are good. They appear to be wire wound.

Hi Chris.

Good for what? I'm just curious as they seem to be a lot bigger than modern types.

Regards

Hi TroelsM,
They are power resistors and are good for much more than 1/2 watt like the average part. I would hang on to them and use them when you need that value at higher power.

Hi TroelsM

Those AC176's might be valuable!
Back in the days of geraniums (sweet scented...) the AC128 was pretty much an OC81 update. The transistor sold as its complement was an AC127. It wasn't. If you ever tried to design a complementary 9V tranny radio output stage the gain fall-off of an AC127 was pretty poor, and you had to push the driver current somewhat to guarantee it would work. The AC176 was a "true" complement to the AC128 and you could successfully design the proverbial 1W amp. with it.

You have to go some to make a silicon tranny amp work like the AC176/AC128 pair. It is possible, but you need something special. For example, a BC327/BC337 pair CAN do 1W but run out of steam (a bit like the AC127) but a double pair of BC327/337 will do 1W. But then you've got the Vbe to limit performance unless you use a bootstrap on both sides; then the gain is still a little low.

But there again who uses 9V tranny radios these days with 1W/channel?

cheers
John

Headphone amp.

A 1W transistor radio would have been quite the performer! Most were a couple hundred mW, "back in the day".

Well, thanks for making me feel like a senior citizen. One of my first electronic kits was one of those 26-in-1 setups with a breadboard from Philips- got it for my 11th birthday. AC126 and AF116. I had just built a little preamp with CK722 and was intrigued by these European units. Nice find!

Cool Excellent, I have a use for them

Hi
I build Guitar Pedals and have a use for all (well most anyway) of these. I would be prepared to make adonation or pay what you want for them. If you have any left, that is

Cheers
paul

those Mot transistors can find use in old car radios or old Leslie amps. you might want to find a pro-audio shop that refurbs old organs like Hammonds. those transistors (large and small) would be quite useful to them.
