A shields affect on leakage inductance would be indirect.
Its presence does not directly affect leakage inductance but it may affect the distance between the primary and secondary which will change the leakage inductance.

- 2 x 120 turn bifilar wound secondaries (0,44mm2 wire)
- Primay is wound close to the core, secondary on top.
- Electromagnetic shield on the outer rim
I finally received the 1:8 step-up transformers. Primary leakage inductance (primaries in parallel, secondaries shorted) appears to be ~1-1.2ÁH @ 650khz and the secondary parasitic winding capacitance 570pF (secondaries in series) @ 550kHz. (I cannot change the measurement frequecies.) After I have build the interface boxes I will do some measurements w/wo the trafo's in the signal path. For me it's very intersting to see and hear how the step-up trafo changes the sound and measurements of a dynamic driver, haven't tried this before.
