Old thread, but can you actually order CUSTOM? r-cores here, or only the ones with specified voltage on the site?

Has any Member assessed Selectronic's quality assurance for the product and it's manufacturing process?

Ordered two pieces 30VA 2x24V to try at first (for paradise phono, since my transformers there hum ALOT). But is it also possible to order custom ones?!

I know the ones from Selectronic and I like them; their magnetic stray field was surprisingly similar to a toroid (in terms of strength).

Why do you think they manufacture themselves? Selectronic is an electronics distributor.

Because I suspect they are buying in cheap transformers from Countries that reputedly have very variable Quality Assurance.

If Selectronic don't have good checking of their product, then we could be buying crap.

I am quite confident that Selectronic source their R-core transformers from China, and that they are of the generic type just as the guys at VTC.com are selling. Custom configurations can be ordered from them, too.

I have been in contact with KITAMURA in Japan. They do not export to the Western world.
There is at least one manufacturer in the US which can do custom singles. I do not have their name here, but I got a price quotation for a transformer (R-core) for a tube line stage some time back. Think they were approx. USD100 each.

What in an Rcore makes it different from a Toroid, or from a Ccore?
Is that difference responsible for a change in audio quality?
Is the toroid or Rcore or Ccore change in quality for the better or worse?
