Crack is up and running, after 8 hours of work, and two hours of troubleshooting. Gotta install the Speedball upgrade next. My soldering iron is taking a much-needed rest.

Problem turned out to be a backwards capacitor. It even said in the manual to double check it before soldering, which I thought I'd done. Must've had a dyslexic moment or something.

Very cool calipilot! Congrats! I'm halfway there myself (I haven't soldered any of the wiring/caps/resistors yet)...

Love that top plate, powder coated?

 

I'll probably end up leaving mine stock, thinking piano black for the base. Easier said than done, I've heard...

Okay, now we're dancin' in the streets for you, calipilot227!

Nope, just spray painted. Rustoleum hammertone in dark bronze.

A backwards cap would've given a warning sign of off-smell and smoke.

He said it was popping fuses. That probably prevented any real damage.

Yeah I know gave him a bit of advice in the Crack thread so glad he troubleshooted it. But in case if the problem didn't trigger the fuse, the caps would've smoked up. Just enough time to turn it off before it goes pop or burn up completely from the high voltage (worse case scenario at B+ voltage).

This is why I haven't tried my own build. Congrats on getting it up and going!! beerchug.gif

Without googling, im going to guess;

1) Some type of newer Denon or Audio-Technica

2) Modi

3) AK100/120

the last pics of my evil amp that i just sold..awaiting my new amp (see schematic of front and back of the new one)..funny is that the new owner preferred the tubes in the pic above the tungsols (5998/sj7gt mesh plates) i normally used..

 

 

 

 

the schematics i just received of my new custommade amp (will be delivered around 15ish december)

 

 

and my modded he500 (grill modded and jerg pad modded)
