Default Ordered wrong transformers, Piltron


I realised now that I quoted a wrong part number when ordered my power transformer when they shipped to my house.


The previous ones that I used were solid core secondary output wires, only two primary A/C wires, came with mounting plate with bolt and nuts. 22-0-22 300VA part#07A.......

The mistaken ordered ones have multi-strand secondary output wires, two sets of primary A/C wires, no mounting accessories.
22-0-22 400VA part#757.......

Can I still use them instead, are they better or worst than the previous ones that I used before? I thought solid core is better..

Comments please
Thanks in advance

PS: forgotten to ask if I were to use them how should I wire the four primary wires to the mains?

Those are only lead wires, and while solid core (which is optional) might have sonic advantage, I wouldn't be concerned that much, especially when you have to wait 4 weeks for your next order. Stranded wires are more flexible and easier to work with. I also use stranded wires on my amps.
