Default Please check my thinking before I blow something up.

There is a thread similar to this one regarding a DUAL MONO kit but because my kit is the Stereo version and I'm new and frightful I thought I'd post as well.

Today I received my transformer, pictured below and I just want to make sure that I'm thinking of wiring it the right way. So here's what I'm planning to do. On the primary side, attach blue to violet and wire them to the hot side of the AC plug, attach gray to brown and wire that to the neutral side of the AC plug. Isn't that the correct way to wire the primary for 115V?

On the secondary side, I would hook the black and red lead to an AC input on the power supply and the orange and yellow leads to the other AC input on the power supply.

Am I anywhere close on this? I will certainly use a current limiting bulb, a power switch and a fuse but in general terms have I completely missed the boat here or should I be good to go?

You're good to go.

Nice, I can't believe I got it right. Thanks to those that have been so helpful while I'm getting this project together and a big thanks to my brother to the north.

I would put a fuse in the AC primary circuit (Blue & Vio. wires). Yes, the transformer is fused, but it only works once! Start with a small fuse, until everything is checked out. Use the light bulb test circuit and the chassis safety ground.

Conventionally, blue should be connected to the neutral and brown to the phase.
