I am in Canberra (Theodore) and might be able to help you. I'm no expert, but have some basic test gear and have assembled a few kits in the past.

hi harrisni,

That's one big Toroidal Transformer you plan to use.

What do you mean by 65vac windings? Approx 40/45-0-40/45 VAC seems to be the recommendation.

Are those banana output pairs?

regards

Hi Greg,

Yes the banana outputs are pairs, 2 for either channel.

Yes I know its abig toridal, I was hoping but using a bigger one it would help with the quality of signal delivered to the speakers.

I would expect a transformer half that size would suffice, but it is your money. Anyway, I would be only too happy to help. I have been thinking about building one of those kits myself, so will be very interested how it sounds.
