Use Lutron Diva (DVELV-303P) or Skylark (SELV-303P) Electronic Low Voltage dimmers. Leviton Vizia (VPE06-1) will also work, but we do not sell it. We saw performance of about 13%/36% (measured/perceived) in our tests for those dimmers. This is quite good, and fact that the bulb is available in a range of optics and warm or neutral white makes it a popular choice. Dimming 12 volt MR16 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.
