Did some home work and made a few calls this afternoon,The Antek trannies AN0506 are out until October, the AS0506 are the 17.00 per will work.

The only difference between the 2 are, the AS0506 has a foil shield purple wire that can left un used...and the 5.00 increase....

Shaun is good to go but that's great news for anyone else needing trannies. $17 still beats any price out there and we know they sound fantastic.

I am not so sure about the shielded version!
The shielding may increase (maybe even double) the transformers parasitic capacitance.
This is something that needs to be tested before it is recommended as the added capacitance will lower its resonate frequency in to the audio band.

I agree it would be best to first test, Is this foil shield present on the AN0506 just not wired?

I don't think it exists on the AN version.

Even if it is not connected it will still increase the surface area of the coupled capacitance just as the core itself does.

Doy you think there could be a possible option available from Antek's catalog, short of winding a home brew?

Yes a higher power version such as the 100 watt transformer should work as long as the transformation ratio is the same.

There was one that I had suggested a while back that as 4 equal voltage HV windings on it and you could add your own primary like I have down with mine.

I will find the model number for you.

That would be great however, as we discussed I would not mind looking into having a single torroidal custom made to handle each channel. Having the capabilities of handling a 150 watts full range, and one for a hybrid build as I believe you suggested?
