Default Don't know but ...

Hi,
I have no idea where you can buy one but if you would like I can measure the one on my TD166 and give you the details for a substitution. Any good ?

From memory it's 9v ac, but I could be wrong.

There's no trafo at all in my TD166 (And it plays)
Do I miss something?

Hugo,
My TD166/Mk2 has an 'inline' transformer on the power lead with a 3.5mm power connector (like a walkman) at the TT end. This is a UK spec TT for 240V/50Hz operation.

The unit I am looking for is USA Spec for 110v, part# Z4150077. Dave if you could get me the voltage on the output side it would certainly help.

Thumbs up INFO

Pete,
My transformer reads 18v AC RMS unloaded.
I didn't measure the load current / voltage.
(no spare connector)

I would guess from the size (approx 45mm cube
including trafo, plastic box &cable entry/exit) no
more that 10W of output - probably a lot less once the motor is up to speed. Hope that helps ...

Dave
