Does anyone know of a good place to purchase these from?
Mouser and digikey are both out.
I know theres a NTE replacement, but I'm not sure of NTE's quality.

Thanks.

I ordered some 3046 chips from them although I have not tested them out.

Re-badged? Really? Do you know if they're just old seconds so the quality is not as good? Or are they really just nos?

The IC's I got you could actually still see the old numbers below the NTE markings. They seem really over priced but I have never had a bad one. I usually look for the originals since they will always be cheaper if you can find them.
