    It is my fear that if you mix the two together - they might form a tear in Quantum Space with one key up and POOF - you're in another dimension being on the bridge of some starship taking orders from guy calling himself Captain Kirk.

    His email address is threemanpro@gmail.com

    Email Thomas and see if he’ll match you one with yours, speaking of gain.

    I love you guys but y’all janky... y’all filling the man full of fear for no reason. I don’t feel as confident in the DEI pieces as I would others but I’ve mixed different brand names and hammered them without issue.

    I’d email Thomas and ask him to match as close as he could to what I had, drop it in and hammer it. If it works and last, good. If it blows the cover off, you’re no worse than you are now.

    Always pays to replace the large resistors close to the finals - IIRC . . .
    At least - test them.

    If it were me I would replace all with HG's cheap enough and call it a day. Good luck

    Mr. Gatekeeper is not a dealer/distributor for DEI transistors.
    He may still be for the HG transistors.

    Its not worth putting all new transistors in it, to me anyway. I dont like the new texas star boxes, rubbish. If i cant find 2 dei transistors in the next week im just gonna sell it on here for parts or repair.

    On a serious note,

    Did you find out why one pill blew - even before worrying about replacement?
