    Transformer that is..........

    Currently im useing a multi secondary Tx for my phono amp.
    Ill be makeing a new chasis at some point and changing bits and bobs.
    Been pondering about the Tx, i have at present, secondaries of - 275V, 6.3V and 5V all center tap.
    Would there be much advantage to changing this for individual transformers for each required voltage?

    This is the Cornet isn't it?

    IMHO I would not see any advantage as there is very little current draw in this application.

    yep, tis a Cornet.

    So no advantage in circuit isolation?
    guess it will save some cash:)

    The most important thing with a phono stage is getting rid of any hum. More xfr's may mean grounding problems and hence introducing some hum. At least with one xfr you can easilly implement star earthing.
