Default Re: KEL34 just acquired

Thanks again, The mismatched EL34 were just for testing and getting it up and running. I think 2x are JJ 1x Electroharmonix and 1x I forget but only cost about 30 the lot (all new unboxed)

Hi yes I'd build it all as standard first to check all is well. It looks like it's wired as single input with vol control so a CDp/tuner will be ideal for a listen. Keep an eye on the EL34s for any overheating or humming (signs of imbalance) and use old speakers or a couple of 8 ohm resistors as loads for testing and voltage checks. You can always mod it later if you feel the need. I thought mine was a great amp with lots of bounce and drive more akin to an ST20 than a Radford I think, be good to hear how it goes
