Which UTC O-12 for 1176 build - EA or Cinemag?

Which of the Ed Anderson C-3837 and the Cinemag 3303 versions of the UTC O-12 input transformer gives the most authentic tone to a DIY 1176 build?

Comments from anybody who has tried both and compared to an orginal 1176 much appreciated.

Greetings,

I did my 1176 with Lundahls which worked fine. That said, for my own line of audio products, I use Cinemag and nothing else. I've been to the factory more times than I can count and Dave is about the most helpful person I've met. I also know that Dave makes the transformers used on the Limited Edition Universal Audio products.

I know that that isn't the answer you are looking for but it is all I have.

Please let us know how it all turns out.

why not just buy the real thing and be done with it. if you just need one, they are all over ebay us - around 100 quid. or you can spend half and worry forever.

I use Jensen JT-11 BM here. Same size, easy fit. 80% nickle core instead of steel, lower THD, greater bandwidth, etc. It removes some of the ugly aspects of that design.
