Hi, guys.

Where do you buy power transformers (either EI or toroidal) from? Any place other than Plitron?

If you are cheap surplus is good but you don't exactly get a large amount of choice. If you are building a large class A amplifer I would stick to a new transformer as a surplus one wouls not likely have the needed power. If you are building a class B or AB surplus may be the way to go. This is an example of what is available

my not so local army surplus shop has them occasionaly, and a web search for surplus transformers has given results in the past

I forgot to mention that I got a 7x14x1.25 heatsink from them for $10 also.
