Apart from Linear Systems, which are tricky to find in the UK, is anybody still making dual jfets (ie 6 pin package, not the Toshiba ones with the source terminals commoned-up). Looks like Linear Systems are pretty much the only show in town nowdays.

Might be worth asking Alfa to add something to their lineup. They're already doing dual matched Bipolar trannies. 394 clone.

This doesn’t answer the question, but for info, the linear systems parts are available from micross.com which has a UK operation: prices in £ and delivered from UK.

Low cost though, yeah not really.

Huh .. that's interesting. A few years ago I was wondering if anyone was going to start digging up old transistor/opamp (et al) masks and the old production plants/equipment etc .. to begin producing some of them again. A few years back when I learned of some certain jfets no longer produced (through hole, that is) I bought a few thousand ... they've increased in value a bit.
You mean this place has hot chicks, morning drinking, and free vomit? ... I'm all in!
