Default Antek's direct site up now

After arranging to purchase couple chassis from John at Antek.... learned the site is up now. Recall Jackinnj mentioning it was coming.

Nice... can see specs on each and see all the sizes available. All the prices there too.

www.antekinc.com right now redirects to http://www.toroid-transformer.com/

I bought one from him some time ago when he was selling on ebay. I would have to say it is comparable tp Avel-lindberg or Plitron, only a better price.

I bought the AN-1T200 and have to agree, pretty darn good. Shipping and handling was a killer though, more than the tranny. Recommend checking first.

i've always liked the transformers. tend to be a little bigger than comparably rated ones from other vendors. one little convienence is the long leads provided, hate having to append to wires (primary side).

seems prices a skoach higher than what sometimes could get them for directly via inquiry if buying 2-3.

will have to ask if can the >6 price if mix diff models.

I've never bought anything from him, but I've looked at his stuff quite often. The 800VA and 1000VA seem a little over-rated to me. Plitron and Avel 1000VA have 4% regulation. This one seems to have about 9% regulation. ex. for AN-10464 61V full load, 67V unloaded (67-61/67 = 9%).

I'm not saying that this is necessarily good or bad. It just is.

Comparing prices to Plitron gets different results in different years due to US vs Canadian dollar. My first Plitron was very inexpensive, but times have changed.
