Default Ask Jan First OPTs


Just ordered the ATRA0288 OPTs for SE usage with two 6V6s.

These seem to have favourable reviews, just wondering if anyone around here has opinions of them too

Jan's a pretty good guy, I've bought nixies from him in the past and he's a regular over on NEONIXIE-L, the world's de-facto center for cold cathode indicator freaks.

I'll probably give a pair of these a try once I decide I've got the cajones to try building a PP amp.

I've bought three pairs of these a few years back; one is performing very well on a trioded el84, second pair on a lesser 6ck4 being rebuilt for 'RH6v6', third pair unused for now. Price/FR extension seems hard to beat (there's a FR graph somewhere on the website); haven't heard any of the high-class SE trafo's. I must add that Jan is a pleasure to do business with.
