I have noticed that the 300VA Anteks have about the same core size
as everyone else's 400VA

i have to say i'm quite impressed with the audio grade ones also. i bought a box full of stuff from them (well actually 2 boxes) got 2 x AS-4215, 2 x AS-3218, 2 x AS-0532 and 1 x AS-0509. I tried to arrange to add a shield to AN-5415, to make an AS-5415 (more for the 4 secondaries than 500va), but i'm not sure Jon understood, because all i kept getting was corrected quotes. Jon was indeed responsive which is reassuring when taking such a big jump down (at least in cost) from fully custom units from Richard Sumner.

These units are all for semi experimental builds, but i'm pretty happy initially with the performance, i will eventually replace a few of them with custom units and enlist them back into proto duties, but by no means do i need to do that. i bought some spectral dynamics sorbethane type toroid washers just in case vibration becomes an issue, they are oversized for their respective jobs, so i doubt i will.

indeed Nelson, the 300va i got are almost the same size as the 400va

I can vouch for the build quality and performance of thier produts. The one I have in my system now is 200VA, it replaced an Avel 250VA that developed a mechanical buzz. It out performs the old one in every way, even actual power output capabilities, and runs cooler doing it. Highly recommended.

I've also bought a few of their torroids and they are definitely oversized compared to others I've seen.

Good guy to do business with also. Very fair about pricing and shipping charges.
Good response to questions also.

I used 2 of these 300VA units in my F-5 dual mono amp, and have absolutely no issues....no hum, mechanical buzz or anything, and I dont have the CL-60s wired in yet. Amp is dead quiet.

Hi Russellc,
Do you experience any turn-on thump without the CL-60's?
