It sounds so good, I wonder why all other grid and plate chokes cost so much.

Most transformer winders consider plate chokes to be more difficult than transformers. Parasitic capacitance becomes a real issue in a 150H choke. So you're kinda getting an even better deal this way: for your 10 bucks - 150H and quite a few nanos for free.
10 bucks gets you a very reasonable resistor and a disastrous plate choke.
But don't worry - you'll come around - the fact that you like the chokes is already a good sign.


cheers

Peter, thank you for your opinion, but unfortunately it means nothing to me because you have proven your lack of technical knowledge many times before.
Once again, all you have to offer is a smart a** comment culled from a background in Audio and Stereophile.

Hi,

Good thing I'm a very patient person...Joel how far do you want to push your ignorance?

Before you accuse anyone of being ignorant,do you mind looking at yourself??

Shall I bring on examples?

Common man,there is life outside the RDH,

Frank,

Since Peter has not heard my amp, has not seen it on a scope, and has not ever seen or used the mentioned chokes - how else can I take a comment such as "makes a disasterous plate choke"?

Again and again he criticises any design or component that does not cost a lot of money. This is worthless "advice" to me.

Also, your endless commentary is becoming really boring.

Does anybody with a brain have some discussion on this subject? Please?

Default ATTITUDES.

Joel,

Honestly,I think Peter has half a lifetime of listening on his credit side.

You OTOH may have a couple of years of reading on your credit side.

I don't welcome naysaying either way.

Me,I'm just nobody really,

Ok, I apologize for being a bit defensive there.
Let me take a different approach:
1) Peter, do you, or anyone you know have any direct experience with this particular model of choke?
2) Do you have any data to back up the assertion that this makes for a disasterous plate choke?

A small complaint: you've misquoted my words twice with wrong spelling. People may start thinking i'm truly ignorant


cheers

Can you give us a URL? And where did you get them? Is $10 a special price?

Nice spot Joel!!!

They're 10 euros over here in Italy. Advertised as a filter choke but good specs for a cheap plate choke. I've used power supply trans as pp trans before and they can work well. This is the same sort of thing...

I'll order some up before the price goes up!

thanks

James
