Searching for: Chicago Transformer BI-6
« on: January 21, 2011, 08:52:14 PM »

Trying to revive a dead ITA LA-1 limiter, and we are in need of this particular interstage transformer. Have done numerous searches that have yielded nothing...

If anyone out there might have any leads/ideas, they would of course be most appreciated - thanks in advance.

There are several companies world-wide who will take your dead transformer, dissect and reverse engineer it and make a new one.
Sowter in GB is one company that provides exact re-issues of classic transformers found in some of the more beloved gear, including RCA and Fairchild.
There are others.

In addition to Sowter, here are some other xformer companiew to check out.

- Jensen
- Lundahl
- Cinemag
- Magnetic Components

If you contact their engineers, they should be able to supply you with a suitable replacement.  Some of the companies may have a replacement already spec'd for that application.

You might check with Altran in Chicago.

They do some nice audio stuff reasonably and who knows might
