    I'm working on a Pioneer SX-950. In need of an HA1196, and I haven't found any I think are legit except for LittleDiode, and they're outside the US.

    Any recommendation? TIA

    For what they are worth and free shipping from one Asian source I saw on eBay, I'd try a one of them first. Might take a while but so does LittleDiode. I would not worry too much about a guarantee on a $2 part.
    Utsource looks like a good chance.
    Hope it solves the problem, P.S. use a socket
    In another thread for a HA1156, he ended up using the NTE part, it worked

    If you can hold until next week I can check my old NOS stock.

    I salvage them from junk.
    Got a pile of tuner boards stacked up.


    Utsource sells fakes.
    I got stuff from them.
    I posted a warning here.

    I really appreciate the offer, but as I posted above I'm going to try Consolidated. I've been curious about them, so this is a good opportunity to see how they are.

    I may be in touch if they don't work out.

    I just tried an acid test on Consolidated web site.
    I searched for STK0050.
    We know they are NLA and fakes around.
    Consolidated shows it as discontinued.
    That tells me they don't try to pass fakes.

    HA1196 is so common, I would expect a not of NOS available.
    But this stuff is getting old.
    Keeping old parts around for 40+ years is a chore.

    Consolidated has been around since '79 and acquired most of their Japanese semi inventory in the 80's before counterfeits was even a problem. I believe they were one of the first sources for Japanese replacement parts in the US during the 80's.
