marantz 1060 transformer
2 Attachment(s)
Hi everyone I am new to the DIY website and am just entering into the realm of electronics. Prior to this I was mostly an audiophile type, now I want to know how exactly it is that the amps operate. My question here is how do you measure a transformer for its proper specs? I wish to replace the EI transformer with a toroidal type but don't have the specs. Can anyone help me there? Is this even a good idea? I'm thinking this is a good idea because Naim uses toroids in their amps.....Any help is apprecited!:D

Don't even think about it.

You want to tweak that amp But swapping out the transformer is NOT the way to go, for more reasons than I care to go into.

Forget it.

Hey EchoWars,
I have a Marantz 2215b with an open primary winding. Do you know, or can you direct me to, the voltage amperage ratings for this transformer?
