The effect you are describing is due to the internal resistance of the
transformer windings and other power supply components, not transformer
saturation. When more current is drawn the supply voltage drops due to
resistive losses. If there's a tube rectifier the effect will be more
pronounced. Some people like that effect but not me. I agree that power
transformers in many commercial designs are undersized.
