Re: BIG O.T.
It has do with the operating frequency. The core saturates more quickly at lower F basically, so a 50Hz power tranny will be bigger than a 60Hz.. this one reason that Aircraft run at 400Hz.(smaller, lightweight magnetics) An audio tranny (decent Q) will handle 20Hz at full power, which entails being much bigger than a tranny whose full power is rated at 60Hz (like a power tranny).
