Great bang for your buck!!
I've used these transformers in an SE 6V6 stereo amp AND a Fender 5F1 Champ clone.
In BOTH amps, they were solid performers and well worth the money!!

Beautiful Performance
I use these in my 6V6 UL amps with 50mA of bias current. They are solid performers with beautiful, even tone and great detail. I highly recommend these to anyone building quality tube equipment. They are excellent!

Better then they have any right to be!!!!!!!!!!

I have used this output transformer with at least four different tubes, the 6BQ5, the 6CA7, the 6CL6, and the 6P15P-EV.  With all of them this transformer performed beyond all my expectations.  The flavor of each individual tube came through seemingly completely uninhibited.  I am especially fond of treble clarity and extension and this output transformer has that beyond many other more expensive output transformers I have used.  But what was most striking compared to some is how musical they sound, and how consistently good they sound in every application.  I don't think you could get better quality in many output transformers made for high end audio.  The price would make many disagree, because they are so much better than anything even near their price range there simply is NO competition.

But I have saved the best for last, the quality of the bass from these little beauties so far with all the tubes I have tried has been great.  They may not reach the deepest notes that their big brothers the CXSE series can, but what they do impart is very nice and clean.  Other OPTs I have tried have been a bit flabby by comparison.  Really this piece of iron is a no brainer.  I just hope they don't get wise and raise the price on me.

A great pleasure to deal with EDCOR!
Perfect double boxed package. Built and delivered faster than expected. Pity shipping and customs costs (Spain, EU) were high, but this has nothing to do with EDCOR, of course.
These are wonderful single ended output transformers that have significantly upgraded my RH84 amplifier and deserve any budget effort. I'm very pleased. Thank you very much!
