Methinks you're looking at the wrong transformers there, kw. I couldn't actually see the ones that Jim has on the Plitron site, but the 2000VA's that I could find ranged from $290CA to over $600CA.

I couldn't read that one (comes up with a shopping error). The one Peter pointed to has the same spec sheet as the article pointed to by Jim, so I'd guess that's the right one.

KW, sorry about the "stitching up" jibe earlier, I was hurrying off to a meeting at the time (and words sometimes mysteriously appear on emails that might cause offence)...:sorry:
