A while back I built a Morgan Jones tube amplifier for my electronics lab's final project. It worked beautifully until my transformer burnt out. I've been looking at transformers and I have a questions about how they are rated for power.
I need a 500V CT transformer with a 6.3V heater tap. My question is what do the current ratings mean for these voltages? Are they the maximum current that the transformer can run at or the current that the transformer should be running at? I only ask this because transformers are expensive and I don't want to burn another transformer out. My hunch is that the current ratings denotes the maximum allowed current, but I wanted to be sure.
