Default Re: Sony 2SD625 line output transistor

Thanks for these thoughts. Yes it seems like the circuit is tightly designed around the 2SD625. Love the thought that it might also have been a specially selected 2SD625 - eeeek!
I do seem to remember from my holiday job in a radio and TV repair workshop that if it was a Sony then only the right/original part would do. I learned a lot from the experienced service engineers.

Thanks for the characteristics of the 2SD625. I got some data from the net and in particular from a well known site but I'm doubting the accuracy of some of what I read. In particular a minimum hfe of 120. Might have to resort to a characteristics plot.

Any thoughts on whether all the transistors in the set will be as critical?
