"Test and measure, guys. Words tend to be empty"

These are good sounding transformers and noticeably (audibly) lower noise. If you’re into that sort of thing.

One other point of interest, the single primary version sounds better than the dual... Actually I have found this to be generally true, not just this model.

We started with dual primary, but ended with single primary transformers.

Wow!

Square, cross, triangles, points, crystal shape... Even resistors form something like circle representing Organic Nature?

No doubt it should attract best Thin Energies!

It looks like an Ancient Temple. How long did you work on such beauty?
