And I'm working on that Mac & Cheese recipe. We won't have time to listen to any amps. Okay, maybe one or two or three. But for just a minute. ;)

You know actually, this layout looks a lot like atongue_smile.gif V-8 engine... I like it!

I was thinking 'yep, definitely would send this back to glenn if I needed some modification or fixing so I don't have to figure out the wiring".

Glenn, can you reveal something more about the next project you're working on?

post #3065 of 10646

Glenn,

I saw the picture of the underside of Ultrainferno's amp, Great job everything tie down good!

And tied down good is a must for it to travel safely across the pond. It is now totally out of Glenn's skillful hands and into the hands of strangers.

I own two Mullard GZ37 / CV387 tubes. One tests very strong and the other is still GOOD but not as strong. Since the bias on each amp can be set to 80 mA, does that mean they will perform equally the same in sound quality even though they are not a matched pair?

Clayton, I think only your ears can answer that.  Theoretically they should be fine but the one that tests good may not last as long.

They sound the same to my ears but performing a Life-Test on the GOOD tube showed a drop to "questionable" very quickly which translates to: it will fail soon.

Whew! At least it's not an original WE 300B issue getting a "Questionable" read on the dial.

Currently, I'm in the mood. For tubes... and music. Any delivery system will do. From XIEMs to Full-size cans to Speakers. Complimented with French bubbly. These are post dinner thoughts swirling about my head.

If it doesn't develop a short or leakage it should be OK to use.

Which tester are you using, and how long do you keep the life test on?

 

 

Anything naughty in the fridge?

I own the Mighty Mite VII, Sencore TC28.

I keep the life test on until it stops moving south toward BAD. About 120 seconds.

 

Bad in the fridge--yes.

I got chocolates from Ultrainferno. They're called Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls.
