Re: KiT/KaT6550 and fuse blowing inrush current

On the Kit 6550 amp I am working on the 6550 cathode resistors are 560R, but the parts list says they should be 500R.

That's R35/36/37/38.

Was that a period modification ?

Re: Railway Steam Engines’

Re: How is everyone’s hearing?

My ringing is in stereo. (both ears).

Most of the time I hardly notice it, but now, just thinking about it, the "volume" sounds louder.

Re: Musical Fidelity A100

No problems Bob.

Just seems a shame it may never get used again.

PS I was not expecting you to give it away.

Re: Musical Fidelity A100

I'd take it off your hands if you've got no further use for it ?:)

I'll have to check the dimensions and see if it would fit in the BMW top box.:D

Re: Squeezer 1.5.1 App on Android 8

It has been said that the SB Touch is old hat these days with all the Raspberry Pi and DAC variations, but I still like my Touch.:thumbsup:

I now use a Beresford Caimen SEG DAC.

Re: Pre3 problems.

Can anyone remind me what valves the Pre3 uses please ?

The old ones look like they may be ECC82.

Re: Pre II cathode follower query

I had a similar problem on my Pre3.

Took me ages to find out it was a coupling capacitor.

The offending one was a Clarity Cap.

Re: Sunvalley 845/211 amp

Just make sure the transformers are to spec for proper 240v/250v UK mains rather than the usual European 220v.

It DOES make a difference.
