Hi, 

Since the transformer in my Quad 405-2 hums a lot (no hum through the speakers ) I have bought a toroidal transformer to replace it. But how to mount it in the amplifier? DaDa has a mounting plate in the shop but it has not been in stock for ages ... so what to do?

Perhaps an option if no mounting plate is available. 

Look at this post , someone used the plate of the old transformer. 

The link also shows a picture how it is done.

The mounting-plates will be available again in the future but there is some delay because they have to be manufactured to measure.

You can also use a sheet of aluminium of 3 to 4 mm, cut it to the right size and bend it in L-shape.

Thanks for your tips! Stefaan, have you any idea how far in the future it will be before your mounting plates will be available again? 3 - 4 mm aluminium sheets seems hard to get here. Looks like I will have to go to China via eBay.

QUAD UK can still supply the original part, cheaply (less than 100 €). I bought one in May 2019.

Hi,

I am looking for a Quad FM4 perspex window, to replace a cracked one (damaged in transit).

Thanks!
