CineMag RE-123FLPC Line Output Transformer

1:1 or 1:2 Ratio, 50% High-Nickel Interleaved with 50% Steel Laminations, PC Board Mount

Made in the USA
CineMag RE-123-FLPC Lline Output Transformer

CineMag CM-DBXPC 12:1 Direct Box Transformer

CineMag RE-123FLPC line output transformers' quadfilar windings yield excellent bandwidth and phase shift performance.  These transformers were originally designed for Altec Lansing by CineMag founder Ed Reichenbach.  The original  transformer employed 50% nickel alloy laminations, but listening tests have since demonstrated that 50% high-nickel interleaved with 50% steel (as they are built today) yields superior sonic characteristics.

The RE-123FLPC can be configured for 1:1 or 1:2 ratios.  When configured for 1:2, two windings should be connected in parallel, which reduces the primary DC resistance by one-half. The transformer should be driven by a low-impedance source.

It may also be worth mentioning some heritage here.  CineMag is arguably the progenitor of CineMag.  With that context in mind, the Jensen Transformers JT-123-FLCF was a direct replacement for JT-112-LCF - the only change was the part number.  CineMag RE-123FLPC is electrically compatible (but arguably superior) to both of the above, and has a PC board mount instead of wire leads.

Here are some key specs:

  • Excellent bandwidth & excellent phase shift
  • When source impedance is 0Ω it will drive levels up to +20dBm (600Ω load on secondary)
  • 50% high-nickel + 50% steel laminations for superior sonic performance

With so many once-great American manufacturers selling their brand names and/or moving their manufacturing outside of the USA, we are particularly thankful that CineMag remains dedicated to designing and manufacturing some of the finest products in the world, right here in the USA, and it is an honor to represent their products. The RE-123FLPC is made in the USA, and is backed by Cable Solutions' three-year warranty  Please ask for details.

About CineMag

Mission

To manufacture the very best audio magnetic components in the world!

History

The company story goes goes back to Edward Reichenbach in the 1940's, where his experience included the design of many audio transformers for Altec Lansing. Following that, Ed formed his own company, making audio transformers, inductors, and power transformers for use in professional audio gear. He eventually formed Reichenbach Engineering, where the transformers he designed became ubiquitous standards in the pro audio industry.  CineMag was formed as a part of Reichenbach Engineering in 1979, manage by Ed's son, Tom.  The CineMag name reflects the company's early focus upon magnetic tapes heads for cinema; "Cinema Magnetics" was concatenated to "CineMag".

Commitment

In order to obtain the very best results in an audio design, attention to detail is imperative.  Even the slightest deviation from the ideal manufacturing process can result in product that does not meet our high standards. In order to ensure the very best-performing products for our customers, every device that we manufacture must pass a computerized test.  For this reason, all manufacturing is done in our own facility in Simi Valley California.

CineMag has distinguished itself as the leader in audio magnetics through dedication to excellence in manufacturing and service.  CineMag offers a broad range of audio transformers and inductors, and research and development is still ongoing.  Only by keeping all manufacturing in-house are we able to maintain the highest possible standards of quality.
