Hi all,
Just grabbed a Citation 12, and am exploring completing this MOSFET-based rebuild. From a cursory - this far - review, it seems both vertical and lateral MOSFETs are suitable with different circuitry attached.

I understand Nelson uses verticals for this, but I'm leaning towards laterals as it seems the additional circuitry may be simpler.

What would be some easily available MOSFETs for each scenario? It's not trivial - at least to me - to discern which MOSFETs are of which kind when looking at parts (and their datasheets) from the usual distributors, but it seems a shorthand criteria may be that the pinout is different and maybe also the typical packages.

Thank you in advance for your help with this.
i have in all my devices an old Kenwood KA7020 100W 8 ohms dead, i think to recycle it in a Citation 12 mosfet N. Pass. This amplifier has 2 transformers with 45V secondary output and a heatsink 29cm/11,41in x 11cm/4,33in x 6,5cm/2,56in. Do you think it is a good idea ? I don't want to repair it but improve it by a new output stage and a very good preamp because the original class B amplifier is not the best they made (2SD1717/2SB1162 and opamp in preamp). It could be a nice project to keep same box and options but with a better conception
Thank you in advance for your opinions
