    Default Inside Trafomatics Factory

    Having just purchased a Trafomatic Reference One Line Pre Amplifier, i came across this video of the Trafomatic factory,
    sort of shows you why such kit is expensive and good, being produced in a small factory.

    I believe Trafomatic are actually a transformer manufacturing company, with hifi as a sideline. I had one of their 300b SET amps for a while, and was very impressed ... excellent products.

    that's how they started, winding custom ordered transformers - both power, line and output. now that they exploded as an amp manufacturer, not sure if they are still in custom winding biz.

    Cool, I believe my DAC uses Trafomatic transformers.
