RE: power transformer design questions or call it debate .

"I tend to stray away from toroids as they are wide band and will pass most any trash on the power line unless they have a shield between the primary and the secondary."

Good sized ferrite beads on the primary side, with the wires looped a couple of times, suppress the power line crud. There are always tradeoffs. Toroids exhibit much lower stray magnetic fields than EI trafos exhibit.
