Help! Busted transformer Raysonic SP-500 tube amp

Postby noblewolf » Mon Nov 07, 2011 12:58 am

Mga boss, may pag-asa pa bang marewind ang potted transformer? Or mas maganda OEM na lang ang ipalit? Tingin ko kase mas extensive ang quality control ng nirewind kesa mass production e.. (FYI, Raysonic equipments are designed in Canada, manufactured in China), malamang boh chup boh chup ang gawa..

first post btw... :)

PM Edrel Sison. He does excellent transformers, pero hindi potted. Export quality, kai he has a shop in an export processing zone. WS and PDVD folks use his transformers for their DIY projects.

is there any way na maretain ang original looks, i intend to just repair it and unload na lang and get a monoblock or anything more reputable..

i emailed raysonic and asked for a quote, tinanong lang serial number, then wala na di na nagreply.

Actually pag pinalitan mo ng transformers ni Edrel mas maganda pa tunog niyan. And you can make custom covers naman that match the look. Have you seen them ba? They're very diffent from the local transformers that you see locally.

Here's a 750kva step down he made for my Luxman Class A integrated.

IME, Edrel's transformers (whether PS, or audio/impedance matching) easily exceeds China made products
