Default Equivalent Transistor

Hello everybody,

This is my story.

I bought a vintage heath kit AA-22 SS Amp few months ago. It has 2 RCA transistors for one channel (2N2147). But now, all power transistors were dead.

I would like to replace them with other equivalent Transistor of Motorola.

Pls show me what type is the best.

I guess some of those similar in the list will be right for you.
Here is the link for you:

this looks like a power inverter circuit because some of the wires seem to be cross connected to windings on the transformer. if it is, you only need to re-bias the base winding for 0.7 volts instead of 0.3 volts, and replace the transistors with silicon PNPs, and the 1N23 diodes with 1N4002 diodes. even if it's an amp, unless you're trying to preserve historical accuracy here, i would do the same thing, go to silicon devices.

I try to find out to the most vintage transistors the associated amplifier models. Perhaps also of interest for you - go to

BTW - how is the sound of your amplifier? Your model is listet by post #36 and #44 from above link.
