RE: Power transformer for NAD C162

So worth fixing, then? Seriously, I had a NAD 1020 many years ago that I thought sounded fine, but NAD has always in my mind been "nice design, but built to a price point". (My 1020 had a factory original crack in the circuit board repaired by a factory original jumper wire soldered to the traces. I was not impressed.)

I wasn't in the market for a preamp (I have an old McIntosh that works fine). If the NAD is worth fixing, I'd gift it to my brother whose new U-turn Orbit turntable is in need of a decent preamp.

So I'll see what I hear back from the transformer manufacturer, the NAD distributor, and the local repair shop, and go from there.

Thanks for everyone's recommendations - much appreciated.
