Default WANTED: 1KVA Toroidal's

Erm, this may be a bit of wishful thinking, but i'm after a pair of 1 kva toroidal transformers for a large ish poweramp.... and as a student i'm not up for paying the 50 +vat that i have found them for... can anyone else help me? or is there a secret toroid parlour i can raid for a smaller fee?

(secondary is not so important, 55 odd volts? and 240 primary?)

Cheers Muchly

Matt

Hi,
I got my 1kVA 2x55V from Maplins for only 35 each!!! These are now discontinued, but if you ring their customer service number they quite often have some lying in some store.

Their part number was VS57, made by Antrim. I'm sure you could buy directly from Antrim for a good price.

Anyway, try Maplin first on 0870 429 6000 and ask if any stores has this xformer in. If they do, the procedure is that they have to get the store to send it back to the warehouse before shipping it to your address...Bit of a faff, but there you go!

Good luck,
Gaz

I'm about to use them in some Tripath Class-T Monoblocks. The are stereo but bridgable for about 500W into 4Ohms.

Everyone who has tried them, loves them!

Cya,
Gaz

Nice... unfortunatley i'm mor into poweramps... as i need something hefty for my pa system.... i'm building a 500w a side using mjl21194/5 but the amp has been measured up to 714w, so i think 1.4kw would do!!!
