Deluxe Reverb transformers

Allen Deluxe Reverb transformers
I'm looking for any information about the many Deluxe Reverb replacement output transformers available.  
Is the New Sensor (inexpensive) part any good?

The NSE is surprisingly good, and reasonably priced. Allen amps also makes upgraded iron for most Fenders that's also very good.
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Another good option to consider is the Mercury Magnetics repro BFDR OT. I've used it in a number of builds and IMHO you couldn't ask for anything better.

Thanks guys for the input. Probably will try the New Sensor version. Will let you know how it turns out.

I haven't used one, but Kendrick sells one they call AHR that is an 11 interleaved OT for a pair of 6V6s that is said to be super efficient and makes the DR as loud as 50 watts. I've read some good things about it and I've always wanted to try one. Pretty spendy though.
