Maybe someone has, though I'm not aware of it. But there are many preamp
models that include a model of the transformer used in the hardware
version.

Well, anyone who is still messing with transformers gets what he

If the only reason to "mess" with transformers was to provide an
accurate balanced connection, then, sure, get rid of them. The THAT
chips make for better common mode rejection than any transformer.

However, today's recordists have either been brainwashed or have decided
on their own that their recordings should include some of the "vintage"
sound of 50 year old equipment, to which transformers are a significant
contributor. And for that, there's nothing like a transformer.
