In my experience, Exicons are not exact replacements for the Hitachi lateral Mosfets in certain circuits (e.g. Hafler).

While sometimes they can be made to work, many times chages to compensation, bypassing, and / or gate resistors are necessay to ensure stability.

In at least one instance, I was unable to prevent oscillation in a Hafler DH200 regardless of heroic efforts to stabilize the amp. Exchanging the Exicons for Hitachi's cured the problem.

If you want true drop in replacements, stick with the Hitachi's.
