I realize there was a recent thread on undercabinet halogen lighting
fluorescents, but this is a different twist on kitchen lighting:
Any of you folks have experience with halogen ceiling track lighting
kitchens using MR-16 vs GU-10 bulbs? The former are 12-volt and
attached stepdown transformers and have integral reflector cones that
enclose the bulbs, the latter AFAIK are 120v line voltage bulbs that
no transformer and no special dimming switch, but lighting quality is
unknown to me. In my living room I get some buzzing from the
that feed the MR-16's, so wonder if the 120v versions would be better
least quieter. My existing ceiling has 120v tracks, and I don't want
a central transformer.
My main concern is the intensity, and spectrum, of the two kinds of
halogens. Why is one preferable to the other?
