Urgent advice on Chinese purchase please!
A while back, ja2dhc posted the following thread:
Chinese Output transformer for 300B SET
about some transformers he picked up in China. There were a number of responses suggesting they seemed good and a number that they seemed poor, at first look. Has anyone (including ja2dhc) had any actual experience with them? I found them in the same shop ja2dhc did in Shenzhen and I'm considering getting them.
The shop also stocks standard Shuguang Treasure 300B-Zs, which the shop-keeper suggested were a good match for the transformers. Again, has anyone tried the combination?
More generally, could you please eyeball the prices I have been quoted and tell me if they sound ok?
Pair of output transformers: 950rmb (~£90 or ~US$145)
Power transformer (one): 350 rmb (~£33 or US$53)
Pair of 300B-Zs: 2200rmb (~£206 or US$335)
I am thinking about getting all the above to make my first ever SET. Do you guys think it is worth it? To my inexperienced eyes, £340 plus chassis and passives doesn't sound like too bad a deal, but wouldn't want to spend the money if the final product is poor - can easily afford twice or three times the investment, if you think that's a better option.
PS Would really appreciate a quick reply - leaving the city in 14 hours and I only bumped into this stuff a couple of hours ago!
