Title: DigDug2 VTL5C9
Post by: karter2000 on June 08, 2022, 04:47:09 PM
Hi all,

I have a DigDug 2 PCB which I'm finally going to get around to populating.  With (trustworthy) VTL5C9's pretty much non-existent, what are my options as far as a sub for the VTL5C9?

Thanks!

I've had good luck with Thonk UK: https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/vactrols-vtl5c/
They always have a broad selection of Xvive vactrols.
The downside is the exchange rate of #sterling to USD, but I've never had any problems with being shipped a bad photocoupler.

Thanks!  I didn't even think to check Thonk.  At this point, I'd buy from just about anywhere  ;D.
