This 400VA started out quiet - not sure what changed. Can confirm great customer from Antek though.

Yes, I have used quite a few of their transformers, for both power amps and preamps, always trouble free. many here use them.

If yours was quiet before, either the transformer is defective, or something got undone or broken somehow. I am the king at having "unsolvable" problems that end up being some mistake I created....see just a few posts back with my "Cold heatsink on one side" silliness...

Thatís a nice, clean build! Did you run your AC mains under the riser to the bridge (on the right)? Iím thinking of doing something similar when this new transformer arrives.

No, I didn't, but it probably a good thing to do. Mine are just zip tied to the perforated floor.

There’s no wrong answer, both are wonderful

Aleph J for Christmas seems a perfectly wonderful plan.

F6 ia a great amp. I thought I had others that covered it's tone, so I cannibalized it for AlephJ. Dont miss a thing. Build both, but AlephJ is one of my favorites to return to. Everyone's mileage may vary...taste, front end, speakers etc.
