Electrodyne 511 EQ loudspeaker action (inductor EQ coil noise)

Yesterday I ran some synth bass through the BAE 312 A and Electrodyne 511 EQ. I was liking the sound very much when I realised that a part from the sound was not coming from the speakers but from the 511. Muting the speakers I found that the sound coming from the unit was sounding better than the EQ'ed sound from the speakers with that particular sound.

I'm in love with the coil noise

I notice the same thing with my Manley Varimu when I push it hard. I'm not quite sure where it is coming from, but maybe the transformers?

Yeah I think it must be the transformers as they are the only components inside those units I am aware of that are known to produce audible noise, known as "coil noise"

Weird. I've never noticed this with my 511s.
