    Not taking on new orders iirc

    Dyna z-565 output transformers wanted

    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

    Dyna z-565 output transformers wanted

    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)

    Dyna z-565 output transformers wanted

    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. thanks!

    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:

    How are these going, any progress to report? What crossover are you using? I have a friend doing the same but with my old 414zs

    Wiring RCA plugs to Connex “The Natural One” cable

    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.

    Push Pull 2A3

    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...

    Ha! Good one

    Push Pull 2A3

    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...

    Push Pull 2A3

    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...

    How good is the Tamura TamRadio iron?

    This is going to be my last attempt at trying to find a use for a pair of there output transformers... Not sure I have this correct; if I were to use the 8r taps on my 16r speakers the primary’s would work out to be 2.5k rather than 5k? I think doing this would be problematic in other ways, the...

    Wiring RCA plugs to Connex “The Natural One” cable

    After liking them very much I managed to smash one yesterday (only the plastic housing) when my SUT fell off a shelf - I forgot to disconnect it when moving my phono. Another broke years ago when I removed it from an amplifier, the signal pin must have been a bit on the big side as it was...

    Wiring RCA plugs to Connex “The Natural One” cable

    Very nice! After reading your review of this I have 8m and a few sets of Klei connectors waiting to be made up into several sets of cables. I’m planning to connect the shield at one end, as some of the cables ive made in the past managed to pick up interference here. I think the cable is made...
