    Just for info :)
    I spoke to Stephen at Tiger Toroid and he told me that the cores that he uses for Audio application are specifically sourced to have:-
    low flux density, Laminate soaked in a bath or resin, capillary action draws the resin through the laminate's then it is baked, Stephen also applied nearly double primary windings to ensure a silent transformer.
    There is also an electrostatic screen between primary and secondary windings and a Goss band around the finished transformer to reduce the radiated magnetic field.

    I got the overall impression, speaking to Stephen as he took me round the industrial unit which house Tiger, that he LIKES building these short run traffos, and does it as well as he can.

    not met him in person but chatted with Stephen a few times he seems to be very clued up and happy to discuss options
