I think so according to the schematic. However, I am not an electrical person. Others may want to chime in.Thanks, your written description was very helpful especially #2. It looks like the heaters are connected in parallel.
Would it be Ok to share one filiment transformer for both SRPP channels if built as a one chassis stereo amp?
I collect antique phonographs which can be very delicate and sometimes very challenging to ship. A consequence of inadequate packing will result in damage, sometimes severe. We all need to understand that shipping is generally subjected to automation which includes conveyors and drops of several feet. I can't tell you how many reports (myself included) I've seen/heard of inadequate packing causing severe damage to expensive items.I believe the transformers were packed properly. They made the trip from Heyboer to me. From me back to Heyboer. Did not make the third trip. In all fairness, four of them has a combined weight of over 24 lbs. I suspect someone underestimated the weight of the box while handling and dropped it.
Yeah, I find it’s always better to start with the 2nd amp. Eliminates all the mistakes I would have made on the first oneRookie mistake.
So, I've been burning in the amp for a few days now. The sound became clearer. However, the volume remained fairly low. Upon checking the components versus the schematic, I discovered that all the 1K resistors were actually 100K. What??? Turned out I ordered the correct resistor value. However, the shop picked the 100K resistors and labeled the bag as 1K.
Just ordered the correct value resistors from Mouser. Will not get them until Wednesday.
In the mean time, I got started on the second one. Getting a little better at wire routing.
