RE: Transformer Interaction - Fact or Fiction?

unlike the other guy I know who's played around with a lot of transformers. :)

I see a few patterns from these tests I posted above. (and have a few questions)

1- the lower impedance transformers seem to measure well

2- dynaco seemed to compromise other parameters in the names of pretty square waves

3- peerless seemed to have compromised square wave performance for other parameters

A quick glance at this would tell me I'd prefer my dynaco Z565 to my peerless S265. That is not the case from listening.

Is the square wave performance an important measurement in evaluating a transformer?

Why are lower impedance transformers not popular given that they seem to do well in both HF extension and square wave measurements? typical recommendations I see always are more primary impedance for less distortion and a small sacrifice in power output.
