    I have a sony va777es amp, which sounds fantastic. But the transformer has started to buzz mechanically. I've tired placing the transformer on rubber grommets and tightening the bolts but no difference.

    I've seen some say to re lacquer the windings or to wedge between the core and the winding to stop it rattling. How would I even take the casing off to do this I don't know. As it looks pretty sealed!

    Anyone have any experience of this. I've looked online and it's all American based products etc

    Attached picture of transformer(btw it is unbolted in the picture before anyone says that's the problem haha)

    Thanks
