Looking good gewa. Are you going to come in last in the EU race? Can you let that happen?

Hmm... I'm not very good with describing noise, I would say it's white noise / hiss. Not static and not distinct hum of transformer and doesn't sound like a ground loop.
Say, FallenAngel, I just reread my response above. I think it sounds a little flip, but I didn't mean it to be. I think I'd better start including more smilies.
The source of hiss can be very difficult to locate and sometimes it comes from several different places.
I asked about unplugged phones because I was wondering whether the hiss might be partly due to the clamshell effect. But, I know that this is a long shot.
It will be helpful if we can isolate the hiss to either the front end or the back end of the system. Which is why I asked about pulling the tubes.
It's progressing, pretty much all of the passives are mounted and I'm hoping to get a few hours work on the board this weekend.
GeWa has been pretty quiet, wonder how he's getting along?
