Use Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) or Skylark (SELV-303P) Electronic Low Voltage dimmers. We saw performance of about 15%/38% (measured/perceived) in our tests of those dimmers. This is pretty good performance. Avoid Leviton Vizia (VPE06-1) Electronic Low Voltage dimmer, as it induces flicker under at the bottom end. Dimming 12 volt MR11 bulbs always depends to a certain extent on the transformer in the luminaire, so results may vary. This bulb may not be dimmable on all transformers. We do not recommend LED/CFL, Magnetic Low Voltage or incandescent dimmers for this bulb.
