Default Hafler parts - Sound Valves?

I'm looking for some parts for my Hafler XL-280s. There used to be an eBay dealer called Sound Valves that has bought the remnants of the Hafler factory, but I can't seem to find them any more.

Anyone know what happened to the company, or the stock, or where I might get parts now?

Well, just so I wouldn't look like a fool, I went back and searched eBay for Hafler parts, and there was Sound Valves selling the old remaindered stock.


So - Never Mind!

DMF,

I have some extra Hafler parts. Which ones do you seek?

How about a transformer? Or heat sensing switches? Or heat sinks? Or MOSFETs graded by Hafler numbers 1-7? Or a chassis?

If you are seeking jfets used in the input diff circuit, contact Erno Borbely in Germany. They are not cheap, unfortunately.

I need power switches and power caps for XL-280s. And I gotta replace those cords (no I don't believe in wire voodoo, but they're getting kinda old).

I buy power switches at a local parts supplier for around $4@. The switch is a standard shape, just get the one with the proper wattage rating and that includes the pilot light. No big deal.

The PS caps will be a little difficult. The SoundValues parts are old, original stock items. If you want new ones you will have to sort through parts catalogs or find a good supplier. Capacitor technology has changed things since the late 80s when the XL-280 was born so you might find something suitable in a smaller form factor.

As for power cord, I just buy one with the length desired and with the wire gauge desired and cut off the end plug. It is easy to find a cheap extension cord that does the trick.

Just a word of warning, I have had some very unpleasant experiences with Sound Valves recently. I found him to be extremely rude and uncooperative regarding arranging to purchase some parts, so much so that I completely abandoned the transactions. If you just buy something he has on auction you would probably be fine, as long as there were no problems with the transaction. If you want something special or not currently on auction, then be careful!

Take care,
Doug

Dick,

I have power cords.

The caps I was trying to stay with the same form factor so I wouldn't have to fool with the mounting hardware. But that may be a vain hope. Do caps degrade on the shelf like they do in use?

I replaced one power switch with a stock lighted rocker, but the light won't go off when the switch is off. I assume that it's wired between different poles than the original, but I can find no specs on the internals of these things. Plus it doesn't match the other one cosmetically. So I figured I'd go back to the source.

Yeah, I'm finding that out. I've sent two emails and no reply. I won't hold my breath waiting.
