    Which smart dimmer for magnetic transformers w/ mix of LED & incandescent

    I'd like to replace all the existing dimmers controlling the low voltage lighting system in my house with Lutron smart dimmers. Simultaneously, I'll be replacing most (but not all) of the lamps with LED. The specifics are Tech Lighting magnetic transformers and Soraa Vivid MR16 lamps. I've tested this combination with my existing dimmers, which are about ten years old and appear to be Lutron Diva units. There is no buzz.

    I had been unable to select Lutron smart dimmers up to now because they did not integrate with my other smart home components, all operating via a Smartthings hub. I gather that is soon changing, so I can select Lutron dimmers. I had previously tried two of your competitors' dimmers with the magnetic transformers and Soraa LED lamps and found they caused significant buzzing.

    Can you offer guidance to me (and the electrician who tested the other two dimmers and will be installing the Lutron ones) about which Lutron smart dimmer can be used to avoid the buzzing, or what further information is needed to determine the answer to that question? Thanks for any suggestions.
