I had a very good sound from two simple projects that Rockmandrake published along here 10 years ago. AD 147 or similar...
Being very old transistors, they deteriorate very quickly for the reason of the white powder inside them that changes over time.

Thanks John,

And thanks to everyone for the help in trying to figure things out.....whether or not the differences I hear are only my imagination they are there none the less.......maybe everyone should enjoy a bit more imagination?

From Bob description of the sound, I thought there is possibility that base resistors have been aggressively used. But if we follow the logic that all amps sound the same, it could be just Bob's ears
Here’s a pic if that’s the same one.....

This is description from Alterman audio.....

“FETs. His design uses balanced push pull complementary circuits. Dual JFETs are used for the input section. FETs are Field Effect Transistors which combines many of the sound characteristics of tubes with the advantages of transistors. Matched MOSFETs are used in the driver stage.
The output stage uses 12 high voltage, high current bipolar transistors”

Here is a link to the stereophile measurements......

Parasound Halo Integrated integrated amplifier Measurements | Stereophile.com

Anyone see anything that would equate with what i’m hearing?

Thanks,
Bob

Output resistance 0, 075 R with 1t910a, and 0, 018 R with 1t813a

What causes grainy sound
Looking at the datasheets only the 910 has a a spectacular Ft. The 813 sheet mentions only the switch off delay which is probably irrelevant for linear applications.

The 813 appears a lot easier to source but is it worth it? Big sonic difference to the 910?

Sound is a bit more detailed with 910, but their reliability is not so good for se operation. Also transistors forming output triplet are germanium. Ge has less base region resistance in chip, theirfore less output resistance

Ft for 813 should be around 10MHz, by analogy with gt806 transistor. 813 has two 806 chips in parallel.

1T910A. Does T stand for T-rex? Vladimir knows good stuff, I think the Ge I have access to won't be half close. BTW, I need to make a commitment now not to waste my time thinking about Ge anymore...
