Having tried the flux-band on two different laminated transformers I can say I have not detected any difference in off-load current.

I also tried one from the amplifier, with and without its mounting frame, and was unable to measure any difference in off-load current.

I will qualify the above: there were changes during measurement which were in my opinion due to mains voltage drift, which you will get at certain times of day, especially on Sundays when some still cook the traditional Sunday lunch!

At this point two articles fork, as I am about to fit the other flux-banded transformer to the 5V 3A power supply.

Whether or not the flux-band works will have to wait for the laminated transformers to go back into the amplifier. Why I'm fitting a flux-banded transformer to the power supply is a matter of "faith".
Not simple enough for Google-Bot to understand...
