RE: isn't the iron in the old ones pure, and the newer ones have a lot of recycled metal

The only reason I can see for an older transformer to sound better than a modern one that is identically made is some sort of break-in from the decades of use. However, that remains to be fully explained or proven. The best we can do is go with what we have. Certainly, there are great sounding amps with modern and vintage transformers.
