Which Cinemag input transformer are you using? Also, do you have a sense of the cost per kit? Thanks!

The Cinemag is the CMMI-2APC. It's not on their website but you can order it directly from Cinemag.

Same thing for the Jensen JT-16-PCJR. You need to contact them directly.

This is the reason I might include the input transformer with the partial kit.

About the price, I'll try to calculate it tonight. It will depend on what's included or not.

Thanks

I see you’ve built them with Cinemag and Jensen now. I imagine you have had more time with the Cinemag build but do you have any thoughts on differences? I guess they’re both relatively “clean”?

The sonic difference between both choice of transformers is very subtle... a lot of audio engineers couldn't tell them apart... but here's my thoughts:

Jensen:
- A tad more Precise in the mid frequencies
- More neutral, true to the source

Cinemag:
- Slightly more coloured
- A little lift in the low-end frequencies

Thanks, I’ll be happy with whatever option you go with
