Default Antek out of business until April

Apparently there was an accident and they won't be able to get things going again until April at the earliest.

There was a fire that destroyed their offices and warehouse but fortunately nobody was hurt.

I find Antek to be a top-shelf operation. Timely, reasonable price, quality stuff.

I hear this is just a standing 8-count, and I hope the community returns to them when they recover.

Again, I like Antek, and want them back, but someone has to say it:

In the mean time, what is the comparable alternative for such a selection of trafos? I see this thread is in the tubes section, but I don't need those big guns. I haven't found another firm with such a large menu. Any suggestions until Antek comes back?

Amveco comes to mind. They are not as favorably priced as AnTek, but then nobody is.

Some words of support to them may be of value. I don't know how profitable our part of their business is, but if it's marginal it would make sense to encourage them to stay in our segment.
I'm going to drop them a note......

I've visited their facility several times -- just over the Passaic River in North Arlington -- which, coincidentally, was the first place in the US that the Dutch mined copper!

I was really looking forward to an AN-4TK400 for my KT88 PP build. I guess I'll wait.

All the best to Antek.

If you can't wait I may have one I am not using and not sure what I will use it for. I certainly don't need it before I would presumably be able to replace it.
