That's fine - as long as it has the original pair of output trannies. My one has 2N3055 o/p transistors fitted (not by me, got it like that), which work - sort of - but the original trannies are 2SC898.

Check if the ON Semiconductor part no MJ21194G will work for you @Family_Dog

Thanks for the suggestion - I did manage to procure 4 x MJ21194G transistors from RS which are supposed to be a recommended equivalent. Just have to get myself into gear and fit them ;)

Wow great job!
I too now need to find one as well as drop off my NAD 3020 with Nilam for some work.

Definitely an inspiration. Keep it up.

Ha ha.. I think the problem is when we do find them we over pay, then pay more to fix odds and ends and by that time there is so much invested in it that it would be hard to move.

I love my two and the new tuner I recieved. Can finally pickup LM radio now and quality is great.
