RE: Are these military potted trannys?

Thanks for the great suggestions Eli. I had been assuming SE, as PP requires 2x the tubes and around 2x the current. I really appreciate you researching the OP tubes and rectifiers. I used the Edcor CSXE series on another amp, but I believe a lower impedance.

The transformer is indeed potted, chokes as well. It has a "Spec" number (14513) but I don't know if they are military or not. They are black, and the PT weighs 14 lbs, 6 oz. I didn't mention before that the 5v filament windings are each rated for 3A. One of the 6.3v windings is rated at 2A and the other 2.5A.

Still quite a few options out there, but hard to anticipate what the PS would do near its limits.
