I saw this video on the making of the Mac 275 power amp. When they got to the transformers they were pouring this tar goopy like liquid into the housing or bells to seal them up.
I know the Dyna transformers didn't do that and would that process make a more silent transformer?
Why I started this thread was not only the Willie Nelson cigarette I smoked but the fact of believing all this time from reading stereo mags that the best preamp is the one that least colors the signal. Barring tubes vs. transistors debates the 6000 dollar C-22 came into view.
So when the reviewer said the pre amp had that classic Mac sound it threw me for a ground loop.
Every time you guys write I get a great audio lesson...keep em coming....thanks Mark K.
