Hello!  I am selling a TAP X on agon and got a question about the # of autoformers.  The balanced units are fully balanced and have 4 slagleformers, correct?  I think I mightve asked for too little money! :)

Thanks!

A balanced Tap-x will have 4 slagleformers. I believe they cost about $900.00 each.

I thought they cost about $475 each or $1900 for a fully balanced unit.   :scratch:

See my build link on this forum for details.

Right, I think a NEW balanced unit sells for about $2250.00 now. Wish I owned one.

A balanced Tap-X with a tube amp and high efficiency loudspeakers, Oh yeah.
I'd sell off all my stuff for a system like that.

Thanks so much for the responses!

I am downsizing from my triamped custom Magnepan setup to something more suitable for my new tiny house.  The TAP X is a very special preamp but I don't like owning stuff I don't use.  :)

Thanks!

Boozehound works fine as does the K&K that Anand built.
