For the parts hoarders overhere (CA3046)

Post by Jarno » Sat Jan 12, 2013 6:09 am

On eBay: Mikes antiques 25xCA3046 $25,-

Ordered a tube before new-year, received them this week. Original Harris CA3046 New Old Stock, in original tube as well.
checked one diff pair, and seems to be the real deal.
Even with shipping from US to EU interesting IMHO.

you can still get Intersil CA3046 from Futurlec for 80c each, dunno if they are any better/worse/same compared to Harris.....certainly cheaper.

They were OK, not perfectly matched but within the +/- 5 millivolt spec on the data sheet. They are out of stock at the moment, but Iam assuming they're going to get more as the part is still listed.
MEEEEEEOOOOOOWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!

Was it really necessary to bump a dead thread just to advertise?

Personally, I'm very happy for anyone who is serving the DIY community by reintroducing obsolete ICs or producing an interesting PCB to notify us with a short post.
