Using MPSA56/06 in A40

To cut the long story short I'm using a single MPSA06 as an emitter follower running at 5mA at the output of my cd player for the moment. The one thing that I discovered with this is that these transistors are very noisy.

The noisefloor with this single transistor in place of two op amp stages that were used previously is many times higher!! So if you use these transistors in your circuit and the noisefloor tends to be high you'll know where to look...
