i need to replace the power transformer on my nad 1600. does anyone out there happen to have a service manual on this receiver? nad isn't selling power transformers for it anymore and they charge an arm and a leg for the service manual. i'm trying to find out the ac voltage coming out of the power transformer so i can make do with something else. anyone who can share an info would be much appreciated.

I'm assuming you realize that it's not technically a receiver - no power amps. Best thing to probably do, assuming you can't find a manual, is buy a used one and make the easy transplant. They shouldn't sell for more than $100 these days. Are you sure it's a transformer?

If I remember....NAD1600 was a tuner/preamp from mid/late 80's?
Manuals available online, for a price.
Careful, though, as quality is variable. A good print is essential to read 'the fine print'......some component values...etc.

If you are near a 'major city', there may be a shop that already has such a manual. If they DON'T (likely) make giving them the manual part of the negotiation for cost....

yeah, i'm pretty sure it's the transformer. i'm hoping that buying a manual online and getting another part is going to cost a lot less than $100, but we'll see...
