They have a range specially made for audio, good prices too.
Yes, those are very popular, probably best, in Poland.
Quality is excellent.
All my trafos came from "Toroidy".

Yupp, they are the diyenclosures models -- i think i purchased them before he had a website -- the handles I use were purchased at Home Depot, and the rubber footies are from McMaster.

$150 for a 2KVA specimen is more than good in these parts.
The quotes which i received for multiple 2x50V-2KVA local production items ranged $600-$900 each.

Thanks for the suggestion. They do have a large collection, but I checked their prices and they are ridiculous. They have recently increased the prices with some 20% and they are now twice the price of their competitors in Gemany (who also offer good quality). Amplimo seems to be selling well because they have got a good reputation and they want to cash it!

I will look further...

Apart from the fact that Schottky diodes have less voltagedrop, did someone compare the influence on the sound of the F5.

Nelson has a very sound no nonsense approach to this and ordinary bridges are wonderfully reliable and cheap, yet the difference in spectral polution of the rails cannot be denied. The question is how much of it is left after the filtering in the PSU. Anyway it would be nice to hear from someone who did a comparison...?

Are you married to a Dutch girl?

Then, I could comfort you with the thought that all girls become greedy and pennywise when they see how much we spend on our hobby, whatever nationality she has!
