    Hi Earl,

    Maybe the long version will help for background.

    I have tube amps. MC30's and a few other EL34 and El84 based amps, with the smallest being a strange 6AV6 6AR5 5WPC amp. I thought it...

    Thanks Earl! Maybe you can tell that I'm trying to build on existing knowledge without going quite that far :).

    In the 9844-8B thread the Zobel was discussed but not implemented. Ignoring the...

    Thanks Earl, I will try the rotation and see what happens. You mean after 50 years of reliable service they might be out of spec? Who can I call to complain?

    I was REALLY enjoying the way they...

    GeeDeeEmm, this is great, thanks! Now that I've said "I have the schematics" I know I have the 30904 printed out somewhere, and I take it the top half of that is the same as 30923 (at 8ohms, before...

    I wanted to say thanks to all for the advice on the 30904. I have the schematics for what it would take to make this work for 16ohm but haven't got around to it.

    The next step in the project is...

    Thanks for the ideas! How would I go about the recalculation for 16 Ohm?

    Thanks for the suggestions, is anyone aware of a rebuild instruction thread on the N800F? I only know that they are "potted" which sounds discouraging... Is there a GPA or other vendor direct...
