Re: Unknown OUTPUT Transformer rating
HI Doc,  
Killing the normal performance is a nice way of puting it!  
They sounded like a fat choking bumble bee when I was done.  
Yes they are old OEM NOS salvage.  
They are open framed and look an OT for an old 1968 portable mono phono player.  
2" tall x 2.25 wide x 1.5" thick at the spool. .75"x.75"x1" core.  
On some of them I can almost make out a OEM number.  
But now that you mentioned it, I bet you are right on with the 50C5!  
Or maybe a 6AQ5A.  
I was very hopefull that they would be a 8 to 10 watt tranny based on physical comparison of my other 5 watt vintage gear!  
It's hard to find a 8 to 10 watt SE OT for under $20.00.  
Oh well.  
Thanks for the feedback...... no pun intended.
