Replacement for the standard transformer. Lopent OPT with extended high frequency response in same attractive metal case as the Standard transformer. Lower DC winding resistance gives slightly higher power output and increased loudspeaker damping.
No screen taps - triode and pentode mode only. A good choice if you have audiophile grade speakers and play quality uncompressed source material.

Frequency response: 20Hz-60KHz,-3dB(Pentode) 10HZ-75KHz,-2dB(Triode),
Power Handling: 10W(@20Hz),
Primary nominal impedance: 3.5KΩ,
Primary inductance:  28H(@40Hz, 5Vrms, Test machine HIOKI 3522-50 LCR Meter),
Primary Max DC primary current: 75mA
Primary DC resistance: 215Ω
Secondary nominal impedance: 0-4-8Ω,
Secondary DC resistance
: 4 Ohm tap 0.77ohm,8 Ohm tap 1.05ohm
Metal core size:  EI76 thickness 40mm,material:  35H360(H14)

This assembled power supply module is used to convert 12V DC to the high voltage required for the tubes. It does not produce any 50Hz hum and, as mains power does not enter the amplifier chassis, it is safer for home constructors. Ideal for use in small Class-A amplifiers up to about 20 Watts. output.

Input voltage: 12 VDC nominal. Current load dependent. 
Output voltage: 115/200/220/280 V AC or DC selectable by links.
Output Power: 150 Watts max. Over 100 Watts requires extra cooling.
Switching Frequency: approx. 40kHz (no 50Hz hum in output).
Optional enable input (for amplifier kill-switch).
Dimensions (mm): 68 x 62 x 28 high.
