I've recently seen a paper of a guy who read out SQUIDs with a single Infineon SiGe BFP650 at cryo temp.
Did this with Si JFET @ 10-12K 15 years ago. Good old days...

Yeah, sorry, I mixed this up with the notion that Siemens apparantly never made a EL34, that was my point. Other tubes than EL34's they used to make of course, in their own fab (I have a bunch of E83CC's in a drawer).

BTW, @John, did you receive my PM?

No, that's Linear Systems. But they only have the 170 replacement. They've been promising the 74 for at least a couple of years now but so far haven't delivered.

OK ..... Would you please compare IRF610
to it's higher power equivalent ... I.E.
Mosfet with same breakdown voltage,
threshold voltage, more gm and higher
power rating (current capability) , noisewise ?
Just to make a perhaps an impracticle point ?
Dare to be even greater !

Not a good direction to go.

just to prove the point that power mosfets are
actually the sum of a bunch of small signal mosfets
no practicle knowledge gained
just for the basic insight

Low noise jfets are paralleled also. That is why they are called Meshfets. Please, you are wasting time and space.

my experience is that a small RC-filter on the input with superb passive components does not affect sonics. With small I mean 50-100 Ohms and 10-100pF, and with superb passives I mean film&foil type PS and or PP caps.

P.S.: Any lower rate college student could answer me about phase response, it is not helpful. I am asking for experience in this field.

I hope you do not mean polyester (mylar), when you write PS.
