Thanks for your excellent and detailed post. As a retired designer and
specifier of sound systems for public buildings, I appreciate your
struggle with the process. I regularly ran into similar "do it cheaper"
contractors bidding for the systems I designed.
I'm sure you're aware of the issues with the use of switching power
supplies for low-voltage lighting fixtures. Here in northern California,
there were many of them in the home I bought here, and I've not been
able to find replacements that are not noisy, and a transformer won't
fit in the backbox. Electrical supply stores sell nothing but un-labled
"electronic transformers." Can you offer any advice in this area?
