Default Power Transistor Difference?


I have amplifier originali build with pair of MJ 15003/15004 on +/- 42 V rails.

I tried to swap these output's with 2sa1302/2sc5200 and I have feeling that my amp is not as powerfull as with MJ15XXX transistors.
Am I wrong or there is difference?

From my perspective it looks that MJ15003/15004 are really very good trasistors.

Hi zox !

By replacing these transistors by that much faster powerbjts you
might have brought the amp into oscillation. (maybe too slight to see)
In this case an amp typically sounds a bit flat...

I think a better replacement would be mj21193/4, they are also TO3.
Or if you already switched to to247, the mjl21193/4.
