Dear Milan I want to thank you again, because you did so great logistics here. You are the man :)
Thanks Moby for your hard work. Cooperation with you was pleasure.
I think (in this nice autumn) its time for Siemens SM204 clone designing.

My transformers arrived today!

I haven't gotten to see them yet as I'm out of town until Sunday, but I've gotten confirmation that they're home safe. Thanks again to all!

Whoever has got these coming, get excited. I'm holding them in my hands for the first time and they look fantastic.

Mounted in my FLEA bodies (which have admittedly had a touch of mechanical modification to move the transformer lower on the body rails), they just barely (but definitively, and with no rubbing) clear the body tube when it slides on (just like the originals).

They're works of art! Can't wait to hear them...

@Moby I have a question about the secondary winding.

There are two thick orange wires and two thin orange wires.

Looking at the document on your website:

Does this indicate that for 200 ohm output, I link the two thinner (outer) wires, and use "Ia" as the start and "Ib" as the finish? ooking at the wires left-to-right, I assume "Ia" is second from left and Ib is third from left?

Or is it that "A" is start, "E" is finish, and I leave "Ia" and "Ib" as n/c?

Thanks so much for any information!

I don’t think you have to link anything as this is not a double winding where you can hook it up in parallel or series. So just use the two outer wires “A” and “E”. Look where the wires come out of the bobbin.

Hi, @Murdock's reply is correct. Use A & E for 200ohm's and leave Ia and Ib floating.
Edit: insulate the ends of the "floating" wires so they don't touch something ;)

Please post some photos here when you finish with installing the V2545. Of course, sound impressions are also welcome :)
