Transformer isolation

This may have already been covered.

I removed the transformers from my amps, adhered 3 small tenderpoints on the bottom of the transformer with blu-tack and sat it back down in the chassis.

This works!!

Good to know. I use neoprene washers that helps as well.

Cheers.

Re: Transformer isolation

Fun idea.

All transformers vibrate to a degree. Good idea to try tweaking.

I often like the sound of equipment with separate power supplies. I don't know if the improvements are from separating the vibration of the transformer from other components, removal of the EM field or some other cause.

Re: Transformer isolation

...or perhaps these types of amps have been built better in general?
