Question about Amplifiers & Preamps
I have an amp. the transfomer has gone and it a split transformer i need silmer transformer as this 1 was like it when i got from ebay but did not state what the problem was. thanks peter
The transformer has an internal thermal fuse. If you study the terminations coming out from the internals of the transformer you may notice either a pair of tinned thicker wires or insulated. This may be open circuit. I have often bypassed this internal fuse(they are notoriously common failures) to get a transformer going. You can get a replacement one from a parts supplier if you felt the need. I would just bypass it anyway.:)This may make the amp somewhat "illegal" in the US. We use the MEN (multiple earth neutral) mains power distribution in Australia and the transformer(if melting) would short out to earth and blow the mains primary fuse, the internal thermal is a US requirement.
