My understanding is that it is the VA rating thats important.
Please copy and paste the list, adding your name.

Buzz, Richard's work is more closely aligned with Plitron than Antek, superb transformers. I would suggest that you definitely get him to do his full range of load testing. each unit normally comes with a spec sheet, not sure if he will do every single one that thoroughly, or just take a few and make sure all are to spec. (very thorough, input VA, output VA, offload voltage, loaded voltage, temperature at full load etc)

nobody is looking at potted units? or smaller units?

the international shipping IS rather expensive and not even that good though, so you will see benefit from there being someone in the US to distribute rather than dropship.

Potted units are an option on the 400 and 600 VA units, adding $25-$30, I believe. It is not an option on larger units.

Thanks qusp for the info. I was unsure if folks wanted to spend the extra money.

Hope things are getting back to normal for you.

I buy custom toroids from SumR all the time and they are really good quality. Well worth a GB

the reason I mention the testing and that you be very specific as to what you want, is that he rates the units at Full load, so if you are not loading the power supply fully, it will be higher voltage offload. unlike the Antek units, which tbh do not really give you that. so dont just go totally OTT on the VA without keeping that in mind, you dont want to exceed your caps rating because of it.

this isnt as big a deal for Class A since they will be loaded more similarly at all times, but for AB its certainly something that needs to be considered.

you can also spec solid core copper leadouts if you fancy =)

thanks yeah the last day or 2 everything is getting back to normal and i've been playing a bit of catch up, but all good, i'll shoot you an email tonight (your morning), i'm just hitting the bed.

You can count on me for an 800VA unit at 24v.
I want to wait for Antek, just because, but don't want to wait too much longer to get my F5 V2 going...
Ah well there's a few more amps in my future I'm sure!

Put me on the list for an 800VA, 24V * 2.

Question for those of you lucky enough to see the new F5T boards. Will the new V2 boards have a separate board so you can easily run them in mono and use heat-sinks on the opposite side? Separate board for output FETS?

I may be in for a pair of 400VA, but only pencil and I would be interested possibly in potted, perhaps open core. it will depend on shipping, i'll price that up. what sort of time-frame are we looking at here?
