It does sound much better than toroidal transformers in any audio application.

It's VERY difficult to find off-the-shelf R-cores in North America, or even elsewhere with 120v primaries. I even tried doing a custom order several years ago, but quit in frustration with Chinese "English".

I am not aware if the situation has changed since then.

I made a call to Antek a couple months ago and they said there just wasn't enough U.S. demand to keep R-cores in stock. They knew of no other domestic vendor. Maybe some sort of group buy might influence their view.

i got one for a preamp on "ePay" some years ago and have not been able to find one easily in the USA since.

unfortunately, nothing's changed as far as i can tell.
