    Buy some autoformers and ask one of the genius engineers on here to build one up for you!

    Good idea
    But the Tap-X has a nice remote and balance function, that i really like,
    And i am a little lazy and has a kind of “OCD” approach about channel balance, so i would like to have those functions

    tap-x sounds like sh*t in comparison with a simple slagle AVC based pre. been there, sold it in no time. something's fucked up there, let alone buffered outputs with +6db boost which are disgrace. i suspect relays used to control the auto former output taps.

    Nikolaj,

    I sold my TAP-X to a guy in Australia earlier this year.
    If you email John Chapman he might know of one for sale as he still provides customers with an informal back-up service. I bought mine from a customer in the USA that john introduced to me.
    I will PM you John's email address.
    I still have one of his Bent NOS passive preamps (with remote) which uses the Stevens and Billington transformers.

    Good luck,

    Neil
    Neil.
