Toshiba 2SA1943 and 2SC5200 Transistors
2 Attachment(s)
Hi All

I bought a surplus lot a while ago of genuine 2SA1943-O and 2SC5200-O (TO264 not the fakes as described on Elliot Sound Products website and elsewhere here) and I have used a number of them successfully in projects found here.

I have 100 of each left and I am asking $2.00 each.

I also have barrier terminal blocks and ATU Panel mount fuse holders for PCB mount (as found in car amplifiers) that I bought at the same time. I would like to sell a portion and keep the rest for my own use.

No one interested? :confused:

Just to inform you guys these are all brand new items. Not used stuff salvaged from old equipment. The writing on the transistors is done with a sort of gold/brown colour that is not visible from afar and shows Made in Japan towards the legs of the transistors. I still have the original Toshiba boxes and sealed plastic packets that has Toshiba printed all over.

I'm interested in buying some. Do you have pay pal ?

AndrewT 29th October 2008 09:48 PM

do you get a guarantee to a refund if they turn out to be out of specification?

You can get new Fairchild equivalents - less than $2 for 25 or more.

Can anyone tell me how do I go about pasting pictures in this area and not have to use the attach file button?

Hi Calman46

Yes I do have Paypal. How many are you looking to get?
Please note that the price does not include shipping.

Hi AndrewT
You can't get more original than this. See the attached .pdf.
I have used a number of them in various amplifiers - my favourite however is Michael Bittner's symasym. I rigorously tortured those transistors by running them at full power (1kHz) for 30mins albeit the heatsink was so hot you could literally fry an egg on it!I think the industry standard is 1/3 of full power for testing .....

Fairchild vs Toshiba to me is like comparing Toyota to a Subaru...

I'm not getting the my eyes Toyota and Subaru are very similar. Both make good quality automobiles.

My point was that the Fairchild units are genuine, guaranteed. The Fairchild devices are less money than yours.

I'm not trying to give you a hard time - 2 weeks ago I would have considered taking some off your hands as I just bought 25 of the 5200/1943.

Nevermind the anology :-)

John these are genuine. I am in the process of concluding a transaction with one of our DIY members that is from South Africa and does not live too far from where I stay.

I'm sure he would be in a position to verify the authenticity once the transaction is complete.

I know there are alot of rogue elements scouring the net for suckers but I value my membership with this site enough not to conduct fraudulent business.
