  1. I pulled a couple of these NE646N Dolby chips off an old phenolic board,
    mostly analog chips and transistors. Apparently from some Panasonic
    audio equipment, whatever. I was surprised to see that a google search
    turned up a site selling these for over $16, so I guess they're getting
    kind of rare. Or is it that the newer chips don't require sooo much
    support circuitry? I dunno. The board's crammed with a lotta caps,
    transistors, etc.

    [OT] I saw a Merc Cougar the other day wih the license plate


    Heh, pretty good.

  2. **My local wholesale supplier has them listed at AUS$6.00 apiece (in one off
    quantities). $16.00 (US?) seems a bit rich to me.
  3. Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.

    The cost is the Dolby IP fees.

    Your sig is missing a space after the dash.
  5. **Nonsense. The same chip is 6 Bucks in Australia (about US$4.50). The only
    possible reason for the difference, is greed (of the supplier). I am,
    however, certain that Dolby do (or did) receive a small amount from the sale
    of every Dolby IC. That amount does not account for the huge differences in
    price, in different parts of the planet.
