Capi lc25

Revving up to build one of these.

I noticed that CAPI have now stopped using Ed Anderson trafos (EA2622) for their own design (CA2622).

Must say, I love the sound of both the CAPI LC53a and Hairball 1176's that use Ed Anderson and I'm a bit concerned.

Can anyone who has built with both make any comment on the effective difference in tone?

Many thanks!

Looks like you can still buy the EA transformers from CAPI (once they are back in stock), they just don't come in the kit.

I've built several CAPI modules but only with the newer transformers, so I'm afraid I can't help with a comparison. My LC25s sound great, and I've no desire to change the input transformer.

Here's an idea: build the BT50s. They sound stellar and hey, no input transformer, no problem.
