Any diff if in F3: Plitron vs. Avel Lindberg?
 
I purchased an F3 clone second hand. Very excited about this. Is there any material difference for the F3 if the transformer is Avel Lindberg Y236752 330VA versus the Plitron that ships with the F3?

Reason I ask, is that I asked if it was a Plitron and the answer was "Yes". Thanks for your feedback.

plitron is supposed to be the better of the two transformers, so start cheering

The Avel transformer in my BOSOZ is as quite as a church mouse. The Antek in my A30 amp buzzed something aweful, until I tracked the source of the buzz to a CFL light bulb on my front porch. Turned off the CFL porch bulb, and poof! the buzz in the amp disappeared.

Lesson learned... Some other AC appliance can cause issues with a hifi set-up. Just another thought to consider.

There are better alternatives?
I'm thinking to build a F3 and just started inventory checklist :)

Sure, if you're willing to pay a few times the price of an Avel/Plitron.

I have had custom trafos made a few times, in most cases a very expensive solution.

I'm using trafo's wound by Harbuch on chunky Antrim cores in my A30. Nice and quite until someone is using an device that messes with the AC - hair dryers and electric heaters are culprits. Antrim were pretty popular in the UK hifi industry for a long time so should be a good quality alternative.
