Without specific current knowledge of the transformers themselves, I have to believe that the iron in these Heath EL84 basic amps was good. Their performance reflected it.
Russ, great lesson, thats what I wanted! Keep it coming anytime I'm all eyes and ears.
Eli, always on the ball!
Russ, I am using a Heathkit AA-32 in my small living room and love it. As what you said Story I also have a subwoofer in play with the AA-32 and seem to look at an amp like the Heath W-5 with the giant Altec transformer as over kill. The cheap bastard in me has me wondering about smaller transformers and which ones you guys like. Thanks...Mark...lately the HF-14 and HF-12 Eicos are peeking my interest more than Nina Hartley!
I'm no engineer but how do smaller trannies fair with easier loads. using small very efficient speakers and low watt systems vs. less sensitive speakers and trying to pump out 20+ watts???
Sort of the right tool for the job kind of thing?
I rewired the socket to power a McIntosh C8 preamp and nicely drove a 12 inch Altec in a Karlson enclosure.
Dave O'Brien, who conducted the McIntosh amplifier clinics, spoke well of the UA2 and included a chart of it in his book as an example of a good amp.
