I too would strongly recommend O/Netics. Bud makes absolutly awesome OPTs. I would always go through the trouble of importing from the USA again.

How about the Lundahl line? I've not heard them, I know Allen Wright used the PP ones in his commercial amps. The 1663 is $150, it is a C core transformer. It is also availabe in Amorphous Core for 2x. I have not heard it, be nice to hear some reports.

I run that amp wih 45's or 300B's and it is the best sounding amp I have built. It has been auditioned along side some rather expensive amps with favorable results. I got the Electra Prints so long ago that they were $100 each.

I have another Tubelab SE running triode wired 307A's that uses the large Edcors. It sounds nice, but is not as detailed as the Electra Print amp with 45's in it.
Tubelab and All,
I have read your counsel regarding the Electra-Print 5K:8R counsel in several locations now.
I followed the Electra-Print 5K:8R recommendation and purchased the same and have only glowing recommendations.
Not the most expensive, but definitely high end.
