A lot would come clear then.

You should give a detailed description on the connections you did before you go on.

And please read a bit about the basics before you connect everything up or you might burn the house down ;-)

Have a look here for example :
Rod Elliots Site
A lot of nice articles to read and learn from.

Alright. At present there is no chassis; just the bare circuit board. Once stuff starts working I will build a chassis.
I'll try connecting a resistor between amp ground and the green pin, or use two bridge rectifiers and make a ground like that.

I have read a *lot* of stuff on Rod Eilliot's site + every book I could find in the library system on the subject. Nonetheless, this is my first crack at AC powered anything, much less audio equipment. So I'm really grateful for any help I can get. Thanks, really. I'll try all these tips and try not to get killed (that's what the four fuses in each chanel are for).

You really need to connect both secondaries !!! And connect the two center secondary wires to the ground when using one bridge. Or use the two bridge configuration from the Thorsten schematic.

( commercial break )
You can find that schematic on my gainclone page, and quite some more information! Have a look at !!!
( end of commercial break )
