The schematic says:

320V/0,35A
6,3V/5A
6,3V/5A
70V/0,1A

which is about 182VA.

Try contacting ASL in Hong Kong by email, you may be able to get a replacement for a reasonable amount of money. Shipping it here will cost more, but it will be form, fit, and function compatible. IMHO you need to find out why it failed, it could be that the amplifier was incorrectly biased and the transformer overheated or it may be that the transformer was defective. They were an oem for my business and I never had one of their power transformers fail.

Thank you for your advice .

I also wonder why the transformer failed . Before this problem , everything was normal & the tranformer didnt show any overheated problem . May I know if any other possible factors that may cause this unit to malfunction ?
Only thing I remember was I on the amp for about 5 hrs before the whole amp blacked out .From then onwards , fuse always blow .

regards

Default AQ1003DT Manual or schematic

Hi guys,
I'm wondering if any of you guys might have a copy of the schematic for this amp or maybe a manual for the Antique Sound Lab AQ1003DT integrated amp.
I'm buying (my first entry into the audiophile world) a nice, mint, used one and there is no manual with it.
So I would like to see the schematic, of course, anyway.
Maybe someone can direct me to a site for a users manual too?
If you have the schematic print at least and are willing to help me out by emailing me a copy, I'd very much appreciate it.
I'm at:
pbpix AT optonline DOT net

Also... I know it sounds very noobie-dumb ....but I would like to know if anyone can recommend a pair of reasonably-priced (maybe book-shelf) speakers below $400 that I can hook up to it to begin to appreciate what I have here.

Thank you,
Peter

I am pretty sure that you can obtain a schematic from Joseph Lau at
asl in China send him an email. As for speakers in your price range you should be able to find a set of used Klipsch Forte l or Forte ll or KLF20 with a little luck. Any one of these is a match made in heaven for your amp. Hope this helps. Best regards Moray James.
