Hi,

TBH modifications / upgrades to hifi equipment are for the serious tinkerer.
Generally speaking its better to sell on, and simply to get better stuff used.

Its the old adage, if you need to ask, you shouldn't be doing it, as
you don't know what you are doing, and here you will get as much
bad advice as good, if you can't tell the difference your stuffed.

rgds, sreten.

I really think someone could help you here but you should do a lot of browsing on DIYaudio first so you will know where to post your questions and how to phrase them so as to illicit a response that will help you.

I think that the "Tubes / Valves" in the "Amplifier" section would be the best place for your question about your valve amp. Be warned you will be asked if you have a schematic for the amp if no one has one handy.

Good Luck

youngie: Please heed sreten's comments regarding upgrading.The voltages and currents within electronics circuits canKILL. Now if you are seeking an experienced diy'er, or a shop to help you out, that is completely another thing assuming they (a shop or experienced diy'er) are competent.

I found these threads here at diyaudio.com. Again, please do not attempt any mods to the tube amp (particularly) or any other electronics equipment unless you have been trained to do so or completely willing to assume all risks Again, I highly recommend an experienced diy'er or a commercial electronics repair/engineering shop rather than kill or injure yourself, and/or destroy the amp. The threads I found are pretty explicit regarding components and instructions.

Youngie, I THINK what madtecchy was asking was what do you want DONE to those pieces of equipment? DOn't just say "upgrade." Tell us what the nature of that upgrade should be.
