Default Quetion for Thorsten

Hi Thorsten,
I read about your Legacy amp and since I have almost all the parts I would realy like to try to build this amp. My question is actualy about parts that I don't have.

Mains Transformer
- Is this readily available trafo or is custom made for you?
-Is the secondary#1 500VCT or are this two 500V separate windings conected in series?
-Are all the secondaries for filaments separate windings on a same trafo or are this separate small trafnsformers?
I was thinking of spliting PSU for each chanel.

Ansar Caps
Can you please sugest source for this caps. I contacted Ansar but they didn't respond to my e-mail. Probably those that are custom made for you are not available in small quantities. In the event that I can't get them would you please sugest something else of equal quality based on your experiance.

Thank you.

I used the ones from the Edison 60 Kit, 2pcs.

500V is actually DC, it is the marking on the original transformers I used. AC is around 350V-0-350V

They are all on the Edison 60 Mains Transformer (2pcs used).

Alternatively use metal encased MKP Motor Run types.

Hi Thorsten,

You seem to have very good connections and experience with suppliers in the UK, and was wondering if you had any more suggestions for components sources in general?

Thanks,
Steve

Short of my private ones (eg I know someone who knows someone et al) or places I just walk in (like cricklewood) I only useHificollective.co.uk, Farnell & RS components. Most interresting stuff I tend to buy in germany.

Virtually all UK businesses that do not sell me ready comodities like milk (that said, my personal chocice supermarkets are between a Swedish or German Co-op british subsadiaries) get me the feeling British companies just don't want my business (exceptions do exist, but not many).

I have experienced better (customer) service in communist russia!
