With the big core / little copper combo the lower capacities and DC resistances (copper losses) make better transformers.
thanks, will keep this in mind.....
what is the downside for not utilising the full winding window?
the best advertisement for a good audio design is the number of diy'ers wanting to build it after all the years....never the say so of so called gurus....
