Re: 10 ohms DCR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Dave,

The Triad I'd prefer over the Signal, as the Triad posseses about three times the inductance, not too big and heavy a core, is well made, and rated for 600 mA current. I use under 60 mA through them, and have no worries with that part. The Triads and /or its similar "cousins" operate in amps known to me, in the L1 spot, at +490 VDC and never have failed, ever.

Two weeks ago, Greg and I listend to his vintage UTC L that was 1/2 HY, ONLY 2 ohms, rated at 1.2 A, and it sounded TERRIBLE. Too big, too heavy, too much core and too much wire inside it !! I mean, the $10.79 Triad smoked this 2 ohm UTC, the UTC lost everything we had gained, the music's presentation was ALL out of time and dynamically ruined. What else can I say ??!!
