Not only that but they only do 4/8 ohms ones, I double checked with them, the other dyna clone company as well as trancendar.
I think if I have no luck here I’ll just find a regular pair of 8k transformers and not worry about trying UL
Not a clone, I don’t need the UL taps but if I had them I’d give them a go!
agreed, it seems the well has dried up, I’ve been casually looking for about a year and a half (I’ve got literally every other part, even chassis partially done)
I’ve been looking for a pair of these transformers for ages but haven’t come across any with 16r outputs. On the off chance anyone here has a pair with 16r secondaries they are not using and would consider selling please get in touch, can be clones but must have the 16r secondaries.
The first post has his eBay shop link, I should have just posted that : shop
I think you can contact him with a pic and dimensions and he will do the rest. The one thing I’m not sure about is I don’t think he will do very thin plates, they all look a few mm thick.
from the Lenco thread:
I think the cotton of the signal wire grips the shield a bit as I tried that, I actually had trouble getting the shield to take solder (cardas) so left it disconnected, Ill try again but haven’t had that problem before.
That’s a very good point, I do have plans for building a phono and I’m not that old so maybe lots more to come! I think it makes sense to get to grips with it now then. I just looked it up and QCAD should run on my laptop (wiped the hdd and committed 100% to freebsd in a fit of frustration last...
Thanks! I was a bit unsure about the output transformer oriented the same way as the interstage splitter transformer but have seen other amplifiers where it’s the same so maybe not a problem.
I’m thinking about outsourcing the top plate to someone else but will need to learn how to design it...
The lack of progress is frustrating!
I have all the parts so have given the layout a bit of thought and have come up with what’s below. The transformers on top of the chokes and PT would go below, as would the rod coleman dc supplies and ccswith the heatsinks. I think the output transformer and...
