Based on what? Thats just a question.
Based on actual user feedback, example: || DHTRob - Tubeamplifiers and fullrange units: A 1:2 interstage by Tribute ||

And don't get me wrong, the same is for other brands.

So your issue is he doesnt publish all the details on his construction methods?

Not even basic information as
- frequency response (domain 1Hz-1MHz for low and high power)
- copper losses

Some people think measurements are not important, the best transformer designers do think the opposite (Tango, Partridge, Monolith Magnetics).


Btw, your link shows 2 transformers i really not want to have for audio......

If you are not interested in his products then move along or contact Pieter and ask him if he can wind you a transformer to target specs.

If he's your student, why do you have concerns over his workmanship?

Sounds like you have a vested commerical interest - IE you can do it better than him. Do you sell transformers (your username hints that you do, or you wind for one of those other manufacturers in the thread)? If so where is your website and specs?

So here our opinions clearly differ, since I stop caring about measurements when it is cheaper and sounds better on top..

Without measurements we would be in the middle ages.
Because some people did we are able to combine all these parts to something that is called "hifi".

Btw, if you like cheap you can make such transformers for Appogee yourself. They are very easy to make, no special machines required.

esltransformer "stalks" every post about tribute. It should by now be clear to everyone he does this. Which is not very smart is it? Since this means your opinion can be tossed into the garbage bin, because it is biased, petty and backhanded.

Bas, you can't proof that so better tell no lies.

If you not agree you better tell your point of view.
