just curious, what is their diameter? I'm working on a case and if it is large enough to handle one of these, I'll consider it a "upgrade proof" design.

This is what I got,

Powertronix
25v-0-25v 20A
30v-0-30v 0.1A
7-3/16" diameter
2 -3/8" height
>20 lbs each.

I purposely did not pick those Piltron as they are heavier. I think they may be another 1/2" wider in diameter.

and here i was thinking that a pair of 300VA toroids with dual 18v secondaries would be future proof enough for me... wow.

What is the stethoscope test?
Do you test the transformers with a stethoscope to evaluate the noise performance?
A true low noise shouldn't be audible by a doctor stethoscope's inspection?

Usually transformers that passed the actual test are better sounding than those ones who haven't passed it indeed?

I sincerely don't care about weight and i rather prefer a heavier transformers than a lighter which gives me the idea of something not as consistent.
I already seen a proper casing for these transformers and stuff.
If you wanna know some dimensions of a similar Plitron's beast, take a look at here

What is the difference from the previous models and the newer models?

What makes me wonder is that from an expensive product as a low noise plitron transformer you still need to select them for an even lower noise level.
Is this so relevant?

Would it be possible to purchase a couple of your newer model plitron transformers?
Or do you think that for better performance i would have to order one from the factory?
But if i haven't misanderstood even ordering one from them i can get a transformer that wouldn't pass the stethoscope test, right?

huummm!!
