Default Re: KT88 Intermittent problem

Dear John,
I spoke too soon! After a week of completely trouble-free listening, I had slight crackles on the right channel at switch-on yesterday - but no further trouble. Then this morning I had loud right channel and very faint (but not silent) left channel just like before - and (just like before) a quick 'turn the volume control up and down' restored everything to normality.
It seems that the dry joint on the tape input socket may not have been the only problem after all. Oh the joy of intermittent faults!
I am very busy over the next couple of weeks and so far the problem has only recurred once, so I shall probably wait a while to see if it gets worse before thinking of having another go with the plastic chopstick. When that happens I shall let you know what happens.
Best wishes,
