Best 300B SE OPT?
What's the best (bar none) OPT for a SE 300B?

Lundahl, Tango, Tamura, other?

Secondarily, what's the best for the money (value)?

OK, if not the best, then your favorite(s).

thanks, -Brad-

My favorite and I think is the best is ELECTRA-PRINT

IMO, for SE parafeed applications, Magnequest TFA-2004 100% Cobalt core.

Or course, YMMV.

For the money?

One Electron. $89 USD apiece when you buy two. $99 each if you only get one.

Antique Electronic Supply is the only place you can get them from, though.

Re: Best 300B SE OPT?
i'm sure that best will depend somewhat on implementation... the James transformers certainly need to be on the list for consideration.

Check out, equal + japanese appeal would be Tamura F-5000 series, next best, Silver Rock, next best, Kondo silver.

Dave-man not speak with forked tongue.
What exactly are you looking for your transformer to do? In what sort of topology, being driven by which flavour of 300B?

A great recommendation for an excellent value transformer with good bandwidth (for an SE), at both ends, would have to be the Lundahl LL162x/1663/1664 series.

Do thyself a favour and get thee listening to a good PP amp.

a good PP amp like what? I currently have a KTA 3030 PP 300B.

Salas 12th October 2002 02:04 PM

double c core opt is the best

Please do adequate research on Bartolluci transformers.. word of mouth has not been so good.
