Default Anyone familiar with James output transformers?

I found these on EBAY and I'm kind of curious about them. They would sure look good on a 6GK6 SE amp. Hmmmmmm.

Thanks for the info john. How did you contact them and how did you pay? Were you happy with the transaction? That is a good price if the specs are accurate.

Hi,

Gavin,

Tang Hill used to be a regular customer of one of the companies I ran.
They always paid in advance by bankers cheque so I can comfortably say they're trustworthy as a business.

You can e-mail them compliments of Reference Audio Belgium and add my name if you like.

If I'm not mistaken the business is run by two brothers, one of them is a surgeon, the other a passionate audiophile.

Analog_SA is correct, the xformers are made by former Tango employees/engineers.

I also recal a member (Thomas?) here starting up a business distributing, amongst other audio goodies, James OPTs.

Just found his website:

AUDIOCRAFT.

Cheers,

James audio transformer 6123HS is a 20W output transformer.

This is the cheapest version that they manufactured.

Better sounding one with telfon as isolation. 6123HS is using mylar as isolation material.

Default Smallest James Transformer

The smallest transformer James make is the 6112HS, 2.5K-3.5K, 10W transformer, not 6123HS.
