Default Transformer selection/brands

Hi all,
I have decided to tackle a tubelab SE and am looking at OPT's online, the amp is 300b type. What are Sofia electric like? They have a model 91-01 that looks suitable. Any comments would be appreciated.

For the PT I am thinking about the Hammond 300bx or one of a similar voltage. They are quite expensive in Australia but people seem to like them.

I am at the reaserch end of things no solid divisions other than the amp kit itself have been made, there is much to consider all comment is welcome.

Cheers

I built my SSE with MARS iron from VT4C (google it) sounds and looks good to me

Hi deadpool,
That amp looks great! thanks for the tip on the Mars site. I have gone with the sophia OPT's and I have done more reaserch on the PT, It the 372jx that is recomended for the SE this is the tubelab recommended PT. As you realise being an Aussie this is still quite expensive.

cheers
