I've heard of them, but have never dealt with them, that said their site seems disorganized. By reputation (hearsay only) their transformers are supposed to be fairly good. Caveat emptor, etc..

I recommend you take a look at Sowter in the UK, they have an excellent reputation and I have had some first hand experience with their product and can recommend it. I expect it is probably more expensive.

I have ordered power transformers from Shinrock. Did it because I wanted custom wound transformers for a tube power amp. It is a small (one man?) company, so their order stock might be full, or they might be on vacation when you order. In this case it might take some time before you get your transformers. I started communicating with Shinrock in june/july, they were nice and polite and could deliver to my specifications.
Once the order was ready, I waited about two months before the transformers came (in november). This was in 2004.
They look professional, just as good as Sowters, but alas, they still sit on the shelf . Partly because I never received any data on them. Unmarked cables, coming out of 4 holes, in a power transformer with three secondaries - too hard for me to figure out. I haven't even managed to find which is the primary "outlet hole". In the end I got tired of sending all those "come on, send me a legend" emails, and nothing has happened since. Sad, really.
So, if you order, be sure to make him/them mark up your cables.

He recently helped me out with clues on how to find out which wires are which. The papers were somehow lost in transit, and since this was a one off transformer pair, it is not strange. I have been too overloaded on the job to check it out, but I am sure it will work out when I follow his directions. Have forgot to thank him for this by email, so, officially: thanks Ingo!
