Variac

Recommended Posts

Kve777 lent me a variac to use on some Bryston amps I just got and now he says to do whatever with.
 
So, if you have a minimum of 100 posts and need to bum a variac to bring an old relic up to speed without blowing it up (hopefully), shoot me a PM and I'll send it out for you to use.
 
After you're done with it, simply send it on to the next person who requests it or send it back to me.

I was just talking to the bunny about a potential purchase that'll need to be brought up via a variac. Glad to know there's a loaner out there if it happens. Yet another great resource here at C!

Um.... what's a variac?  Big Grin
 
It allows you to vary the input voltage (vari-a/c ) instead of exposing a device to full throttle A/C from the wall outlet.  This is particularly useful for testing out old equipment that may be susceptible to damage.
