OK, so here's the fun I got to have today.

As I mentioned above, I ordered the Sowter 3603's a couple weeks ago. I live in the states. The order arrived today. They shipped me the style with the wires coming out the top, with the threaded grommet (option 'E'), instead of out the side (option 'F'), like I ordered. OK, it's not the end of the world. I could make that work.

But then I was looking at the wires and noticed they didn't match the published color codes for the traffo I ordered, the 3603. So I was about to email them asking them what the new color codes were, and I noticed its the entirely wrong transformer. I ordered 3603f and they sent 3575e. So I bet they mixed up orders and sent me someone else's.

Good times...   :)

At least they sent you the transformer. I ordered a tranny from Cinemag in January and those clowns have yet to ship it out
Audio engineering suffers from misinformation, disinformation, and downright lying more than most fields of endeavour.

Holy  crap. I'd be bombing them with phone calls and emails!

Sowter already shipped the replacements, and I sent back the ones they sent me, yesterday.

Good luck with your cinemags!

Yeah I would definitely call Cinemag (not email)

I ordered a pair of transformers from Cinemag a couple months ago and turnaround was a little over a month. There must be some issue going on over there with your order

My friend John printed me up some mounting cups/brackets for the new (correct) transformers.
