TO-264 Transistor

TO-264 Transistor (19/21)



  1. It’s been a while, I’ve seen both black and anthracite colors for m4.0t. The tfm-4.0 basically is same amp iirc most are black! My theory on this is the m-4.0t black models are precursor models to the tfm-4.0. I have also heard of people ordering black face when it was not yet available. A good question for Bob! barryg
  2. I have recently been introduced to younger men early 20s who heard good stereo finally. I been trying to get younger folks involved in this hobby. Rather than sell for making a lot of money I sell to them so they maximize their joy from their audio. It’s great to see their faces glow, especially their first sonic holography experience! Good Luck with your sale! Barry
  3. Can’t go wrong with a BillD c-1 preamp! BarryG
  4. I’ve been using Amazon HD music for a good while snd use the echo link into my DAC. Sounds good, easy to use and can easily be controlled with my iPhone app! now I’m in hospital still use it with my iPhone and sound-core liberty iii earbuds. Does a good job, sure can’t wait to go home!
  5. Welcome to the site! OCCD is strong in this one! Lots of great info, and wonderful knowledgeable people here. I came to this site 13 years ago and I’m still here. I repair the simple things, my first piece I repaired was the c-1 easy access, strait forward layout. have fun, kick off your shoes, grab your favorite beverage, relax, it’s time to wake up your neighbors, must of all have fun!

  6. Update to my update! cascading problems, looks like myeloma has metastasized to my ribs snd to my lungs, I’ll know more after Monday! I am actually getting scared at this point!
  7. Like a cute red headed nurse named Melissa!😇
  8. Update January 21, 2023 In December I had a 10mm titanium rod Inserted in my left femur. To repair a hole caused by myeloma which had metastasized to my bone. In getting physical therapy things were improving nicely until I injured my right shoulder. Initially, we thought it was a fractured collarbone, but in addition to the clavicle, I have a torn rotator cuff, which put my physical therapy on hold. Suddenly I had New pain in my thigh, which led to x-rays than an MRI on my back. Apparently cancer has metastasized to my to my lumbar vertebrae. In fact, my entire vertebrae, except my neck is affected by the myeloma. The next course of action is daily radiation over the next few weeks to my L4 vertebrae. I am in severe pain and hospitalized for pain management. Anyways, I wanted you guys to know what was going on and why I have been absent for so long. I have been hospitalized since before Thanksgiving. I really want to go home. I realize that my time living alone is limited and will probably will be in assisted-living in the not so distant future. I hope you guys have a great day! BarryG
