Can someone verify whether the National web site is truly broken? It sure looks that way to me. In addition to all sorts of snarled links and stuff, there's no obvious way I can find, say, the datasheet of an LM7824... had to go to Fairchild's site!

I've noticed that the current generation of 20-somethings and younger seem to have been raised in an environment where admitting you don't know something isn't OK, yet just flatly claiming that something doesn't exist or can't be done -- without actually knowing as much -- is considered perfectly OK.
The magic potion in that sealer bath is what gives you 10dB more :-)
I am pretty immune to the whole audio-phool saga but I must say that when I listened through a tube amp at a friend's house I was rather impressed. The dynamic range was incredible. You could set it to full blast and when the source (but not the amp) was turned off you could crawl into speaker and here nothing. Not the faintest hiss.
Ok, it cost a whopping $1200 because it was hand-built. But he had a higher end amp before that which wasn't cheap either but not even close in dynamic range.
Wow. You can't see parts by package, but you can see them by package volume! A TL082 can be as big as 11862500.0 mm3, which wouldn't fit into my backpack. And look at the pricings... the price on the LM101A ranges from $0 to $225.
They used to have a good web site, before they lost their minds.
Maybe TI has an opamp I can use.
Speaking of which, any recommendation for a cheap SOT-23 opamp, 4 MHz maybe, +-5 supplies? Seems that we've purchased over 17,000 pieces of LM7301 of late, at 90 cents each, and there must be a better deal around.
