Take a look at Edcors Transformers:
Power Transformers
Output Transformers

Many have had good experience. The only down side is the long wait time as they make for orders. Torroidy is good but shipping cost to this side is very high.

Thanks Fred, looks like this might be a better buy than Hammond products.

Hi pchw,
Just received my Toroidy TTG-KT88PPs as recommended by Marc.
US $26 shipping to Australia
(Ordered on the 22nd December.)
I think postage charges most reasonable, considering the weight.
Delivery was excellent, particularly over the Xmas period.

I wonder Toroidy has changed the shipper or has more shipping options.
Which shipper did you use?

4 years ago, I ordered 10 15VA small customized toroids, the shipping was double of yours, here is the quote from Tomasz:
Dear Fred,

Audio grade TS15VA PRI: 2x 115V SEC: 2x 12V costs 20,00 EUR/pc.

Shipping cost to USA for 6kg package which can takes 10 pcs. - 51,00 EUR.


According to the web page, 2 x KT88 OT's fit a 6kg package as well.

Edit: there is no shipping option to US or Canada yet.

Thanks,

Hi Fred,
I just used their standard online process for ordering.
The shipping cost calculated seemed reasonable; so I just proceeded with the order.
On the receipt provided with the goods, it indicates:
Transport: Koszty wysylki
The package was delivered here in Australia by UPS.
Online you should be able to replicate my experience.
(Total cost inc delivery for 2 items = $190.57 USD.)
regards,

Colin

Thanks, Colin.

26 USD is very reasonable, even shipped from the US Continental.

Unfortunately, the online ordering apps doesn't have shipping to US (or North America in general). I will send an email to inquire.

Thanks,

Hi drpro,
Compare the core size between the two transformers. Hammond cores are typically much larger than others with similar ratings. I looked at many before settling on Hammond products. The larger core will give you lower distortion, especially at higher power levels and low frequencies.

Thanks Chris, I probably will go the Hammond route for the simple reason one transformer covers all of the voltages needed. I believe this will result in a cleaner simpler build, at an increase in cost, though not a huge one. Also the wait times on the Edcor products is a bummer.
Finally got to keep sending those dollars to Canadian companies!!!
Tnx
David

I just realized the Mouser shopping cart link didn't copy so here it is:
