Just the FYI for the forum members. I have sent my amp at the end of February to Vintage HiFi and that's the last time I have seen it. I have been calling and sending email to the shop and first I got some answers they have been really busy and were unable to look at it yet. Now, I get no responses ...

Re: Carver TFM-35 transistor replacement

Unfortunately after replacing 2 transistors (q216, q218) and 2 resistors (R244, R246) and all the caps, I have plugged it in to the power and got a sparks and smoke from exact the same area on the PCB (q216, q218) and (R244, R246). There must be some other component that is causing this failure. It ...

Re: Carver TFM-35 transistor replacement

I have never heard of MCM Electronics before. I usually order parts from Mouser or Digi-Key. However I love how they find a suitable replacement. Thank you. I also ordered the other 2 mentioned by me in first post, since I was unable to find anything better before you pointed out to MCM Electronics....
