The stated ratings of the transformer. 1.14 kva means it is rated for about
a kw of audio (theoretically 1140 watts with perfert power factor) just
call it a kw to account for some inevitable phase shift. That means it
should be designed to modulate 2 kw DC input. But with the current rating
of .198 amps, to get 2 kw DC input, you would need 10,101 volts on the
plate. The rated load impedance is 5500Ω. 10 kv @ 198 mills is
