I am working on a old Yamaha MX1000 power amp.
Each amp channel has 3 2sc3280 and two 2sc3281.
ditto for the 2A1301/1302.

It appears this is some sort of cascode output topology with the higher
voltage 3281/1302 stacked by the rails.

It looks like there are a lot of fakes on the market now for these devices.

I was thinking of just using the 3281/1302's for all.
It seems these are just a up rated 3280/1301.
any reason NOT to do this?

Yes, there are fakes of those numbers.You have to buy from a reputable
dealer but even then, I would imagine fakes can still sneak in.

I bookmarked this page years ago. It's still around. HTH.

ones you find are FAKES.

There are numerous eBay auctions with them listed.
So you think they are ALL fakes?
Some of the people selling them seem to have excellent feedback ratings.

I wrote to Toshiba on this subject in 2003. Actually, inquired thru their
website.
Yes. Unless they are genuine "new old stock" any C3281 / A1302 types being
sold are fake.

Here is their response:

Quote:

"Thank you for your e-mail inquiry for 2SC3281 and 2SA1302.

Toshiba no longer manufactures or supplies either 2SA1302 or
2SC3281.

You may wish to consider using Toshiba near equivalent parts which are
currently available :
