Crazzy, I don't know for sure, but in researching the topic for my Adcom on DIYAudio, I read that you should always buy the complementary listed on the data sheet. They said it is tough enough to find a complementary to match hfe and Vbe. Pulling another 'like' part from another manufacturer would be harder. Again, I'm no expert...just passing along what I read.

That is what I think to, and that is why I wanted to go for NTE instead, thanks for your opinion sonidos it can be very helpful to know what others think.

After I get some more house cleanup done I will set up my rig with the 12V power supplies, 100 watt light bulb and the Tip35/36's that I have, and see what kind of result I get. My dad is in Mongolia for two weeks so me and my mom have the entire house to our selves, meaning we can rearrange and clean the main room were I set up my equipment, the PC room will be next and then it's back to the work shop to finish up the rest of the junk removal.

I wish you luck to you and that Adcom, at least you don't have mass piles of broken and partially assembled projects to go through.

Crazzy, no problem. I was talking to a coworker, who is an old Navy tech about my transistor issues. I told him that I think of it as each brand (Sanyo, Pioneer, Fairchild, IRF) has it's own house recipe. I need to stay with the house recipe (pnp/npn) as much as possible.

Good luck! Oh, and my cousin wants to drop off his dead Rotel receiver. So, my first collection! :D

So it has been a while since I have taken a gamble with this receiver..... well for the past week I have been working on getting the numerouse broken stereos that have been laying around collecting dust and this just happens to be one of them..... as of now I have the receiver working! Well only one channel because I accidentally installed a bad output transistor in the Right channel.... I am lucky for the 100 watt light bulb because I would have been right back to ground zero.

I removed the power connector from the Right channel and because the output relay does not trigger (the protection circuit cannot be fooled!) I used an alligator clip and wire to bypass the relay, and amazingly it worked, very clear audio considering all the substitutes I am using, mostly recycled parts.

I managed to gather enough Toshiba 2SC3280's and 2SA1301's in common pairs, so what the heck, I have nothing to lose by trying them since I was just going to junk the amplifier section any way if I couldn't get it working, and I would have spent around $200 just to get replacement NTE outputs.

Now that I have it working..... IT sounds darn good for such a complex piece of equipment!!! :headphones:

I plan on making up a new amplifier schematic and power supply schematic, there are modifications I did to improve the power supplies, and I also removed the brittle sockets for the output transistors and directly soldered the wires, this makes for a more reliable contact.

Feel free to ask questions at will...
