Thanks for doing the sweeps Shab
I think EmRR & Rackmonkey are right to question the tolerance on UTC manufactured units.
The Crimson errs on the better side of a spread anyway so, def worthy of using I think.

The standard way to reduce much of the noise and distortion in audio gear in 1955 was to have a couple of beers.
 Anything else was too fiddlesome and too expensive.

How do these compare sonically to the Sowter 4383? Would it be worth swapping the Sowter for the CT-A10 in my DLA2A?
Sowter makes high quality transformers

Normally Sowter do "replacement" transformers and not "Exact Clones".
I would expect Sowter transformers to have better specs and be better built than the vintage transformers they are to replace.

If that is good or bad in a vintage unit  it's subjective, and it's totally understandable.

evilbay prices have become insane over the last few years,

Definitely,
A-10 prices have become highly exaggerated because of all the audiphool crowd that buys them for MC phono preamps that they don'r really need.

I find the Crimson clone price exaggerated also for what it its

I would be interested in giving these a try.

I don't see the A-24 repro listed on their website, is it actually available ?

Would anyone be interested in a group buy ?

I'd be in for a group buy, a pair of the A10s and a pair of the A24s would be just the thing for a DLA-2A I'd think!

I've sent a message over ebay and gained no reply, I have now tried writing an email.

They don't show the A-24 copy listed on their website, I wonder if this is actually available ?

They were still developing that one last time I exchanged emails with John. Go to the Crimson Transformers site and get the contact info there.
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I have contacted Crimson multiple times via their ebay shop and their website email address

Never received any reply which is not very nice ....

My conclusion is Crimson doesn't want to do business overseas.

I agree. I contacted them a while back about transformers for my tube mixers but did not get a reply.

Cheers
