Rather difficult to find audio TO3 metal case devices ,
moreover if they are darlingtons type like these ones,
with good caracteristics.

You can try plastic cases TOP3 BDV64C/65C
if you cant find metal case equivalents..

slim pickins' in TO-3 Darlingtons. The TIP142,7 - etc. can be jigged into place, and work quite reliably.
Why, silly hare, are you fleeing from the fierce jaws of the lion now grown tame?

two years ago I have order this types by farnell for repair a German power amp, brand "Kücke" (KS-Electronic, "Select" series), typ "E42" (see attached pictures of this model - it was the successor of "E41").
I guess, CPC-Farnell still offer this types - here some URLs about Farnell and an other:
Semiconductor: BDX66C (BDX 66C) - 20SI-P-DARLINGTON 100V / 16A / 150W
Semiconductor: BDX67C (BDX 67C) - NPN - DARLINGTON / 120V / 16A / 150W...
The electrical difference between E41 and E42 was only the amount of output power devices: 2 pairs vs 3 pairs.

BTW - he associated pre-amplifier V32 looks also nice:
KS-Kuecke V32, Preamplifier

What is your amplifier brand/model?
