DL103R (0.29mV output) + Partridge 977 1:6 + Valve Itch 48 dBs will be enough gain?

For anyone else - the linked pins are the grounds. If you measure the resistances, the input side has a resistance of about 25-30R and the output side is higher, can't remember, but significantly higher.

BTW, I broke the link between the grounds - there was some discussion on this back earlier in the thread, about pg 10-15 something like that

EDIT: my cart is 0.35 and its plenty loud enough with the partridge 977....

He ties gnd on the primary side to gnd on the secondary. Salas, I note you didn't do this in your schematics, although there was some discussion about it back a little. Both version of yours are working fine? No need to follow that common gnd?


Made more progress tonight. The transformer box is done, next up is the umbilical from phono box to transformer box. Then I can start on the circuit itself - thanks to the arrival of some nice matched caps from Poros Island......

We will see which is most IMF-affected postal service... I'm already guessing it is the Irish one!

So better don't have connected both gounds & left floating as per Salas advice.

Did you connect the step-up tx to chassis gnd as pic to avoid hum?

You are quoting my findings from another SUT model. You will see when you will have a properly working phono as for what is best with the 977 and your TT grounding.

That's a good advice as always, I will follow experimenting with my own Itch.
