    I pulled this transformer out of an old ART amp from the 90's a while ago. Just curious if any of you think it might be a good useable Transformer for a project. I know nothing about transformers.

    It was a solid state amp, I guess? That's about all you would use it for, probably in the 50 to 60W output range.
    Or if you wanted to build some kind of split (+/-) power supply it could also be used.

    Yea, it was SS with one of those mini tubes in it. Doubt if I'll use it for that type of amp. Thanks for the info. I'll hold onto it in case someone needs something like that at some point.
