Default Mounting an ei core sideways

I have a rather bulky/ tall ei core transformer for my dac. So instead of buying a 4U high chassis, i was thinking about laying the transformer flat (of course properly mounted).

Can i do this and what will it do with any RF to surrounding components?

Thanks

You are unlikely to get RF from a transformer, unless your rectifiers generate it. You may get hum or buzz. Magnetic flux will mainly follow the core, but some will leak out. Wires/components which are parallel to the windings are most likely to have a voltage induced in them. For PSU components, which are the only ones which should be near the transformer anyway, induction should not be an issue as direct currents through them are likely to be greater. Distance is more important than orientation.

Yes, you can do it if properly mounted.
