Default bipolar (bjt) transistor families for audio power output stages

hallo everyone
there are many technologies by manufacture to reach perfect data so as high linearity and transit frequency. The newest is "BiT-LA" (ST) and older versions are "M.E.T" (TOS), "LAPT" (Sanken), RET (FUJ) and EBT (NEC). I think, there are many more versions without especially abbrevation. Until this day I don't find a describtion about the advantages and the disadvantages between all this technologies. Perhaps one of you knows books or websites especially about this topic.
For me it is amazing, that the currently types of old motorola MJ series (e.g. MJ21193/MJ21194 without DC-SOA in data sheet) provides perfect sonic transmission by only 4 MHz ft. What is in real life the advantage for 10 times higher values of ft for audio power applications (possibly depending on whether the emitter follower or common emitter is used)?
In additional very helpful for me are to know the exactly titles of orig.data books and application notes from NEC and Fujitsu. Then I can order copies of this books by my tele rent library. Because the titles of all my own data books are very unspecifically (eg "power Devices" "discrete Power" "Bipolare Power" or "High Current Transistor"), I need the exact title of data book for order copies. Perhaps one of you knows orig. data books from NEC and Fujitsu between 1977 and 1987 about transistors for audio.
Thank you very much for your replies - I hope, you can understand my not perfect english

You should be more cautious about using the word "perfect".

I use single pairs of MJL21193/94, and they really deliver the goods, in any load
Someone say, bahhh only 4Mhz
Whats the problem with that
To do 15khz, which may be the limit but also enough for a perfectly good musical experience, with all the sonic goodies one can imagine

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transistor#Types ??????
this are basic article about different kind of transitor technologies in general. Very good for beginners.

Is my english so bad?

Please read the headline - I need advices about articles, that compare each transistor technologies - only in case of audio power bipolare junction transistors.

thank you very much and best regards
Andreas

"Is my english so bad? "
Your English is fine to me and perfectly understandable.
As to using devices with very high transition frequencies, some designs, either deliberately or unwittingly really on the "slower" older devices to help maintain stability.
With the (in my view, not really neccessary) trend to designing to deliver ever increasing full power bandwidths, and phenomenal rise times, the characteristics of the semiconductors become ever more critical.

Are there really no books, application notes and literature about various emitter structures in Audio power bipolare junction transistors?

I still want to know exactly titles about literature of follow various emitter structures in Audio power bipolare junction transistors:

"M.E.T" = Multi Emitter Transistor
"R.E.T." = Ringemitter Transistor
"LAPT" = Large Area Parallel Transistor
"BiT-LA" = bipolare junction transistor linear application - planar technology with an advanced base island layout
"E.B.T" = Emitter Ballast Transistor
"MESA" = ?? (Matsushita)

what are the pros and cons of these technologies?
Which technology use ON-SEMI for their types MJ21193/MJ21194 (still 4 MHz ft - the other models similare to the 2SA/2SC audio power versions from TOKYO SHIBAURA ELECTRIC CO) ??

Thank you for your comments

Switch technology, not very exciting for audio use.

The MJL21193 and MJL21194 utilize Perforated Emitter

Lumba, You are joking?
