So continuing on with my project, I am selecting components to use in my BOM for the amp I want to build. I had another thread that I lost. I forget what it was and where it was. anyways. I am building a stereo HiFi amp with EL34s. the output power of each channel I am trying to get at least 40W. Id like to push it to 50 but I dont really need to be THAT much. So, I am wondering what power transformer should I use? I did some googling and 50W pair of EL34s in an amp are 120ma each tube. thats almost 500ma on a transformer. that would be huge. That explains why the transformer I have now gets too hot to touch after an hour or so of operation.
