RE: Inexpensive Power Transformers

The idea of an umbilical and HV connectors has never appealed to me. Maybe I should be looking for a toroidal transformer instead. They generate a much weaker EM field. Mouser has a Triad VPT230-110 with similar specs for about $18. Or there's a Hammond 1182D240 for $44. The preamp I have in mind will enclose everything, including the tubes, so it doesn't matter which type transformer I use. Yep, think I'll go with a toroid for this project.

Buy Chinese. Bury freedom.
