Default Thanks

I have the same kit and have been waiting to hook it up. You made it easier for me. One question, what are the connections between the two boards on the bottom for?

Thanks Again

Thumbs up Thanx, Scooby300

Thanx a lot, this was very helpful. I think I will also like to have pushbuttons for input selection on the front of my amp to be able to operate it even without a remote. Do you know if that will be possible?

What are the red, white and black leads soldered between the boards on the underside?

I will not use it as a passive preamp, even if you recommend that. It will be part of an EL-84 based tube preamp. At the time of the writing I am still lacking a lot of components, but I will post more about it when I start building.

My pre will be based on a design by Jan E Veiset as found here: Balanced tube preamp for class D power amps.

I am still not quite sure if I have all the info I need for my use of the kit, but I guess I can ask followup questions in this excellent forum later on...

The wires are the output on the vol pot strait to the output on the relay board why use copper tracks when you can have silver plated copper wire. And there is less connections

NO way that i think of because it uses a rotary encoder for selecting

Default Inputs

I'm just building a box that sits between my pre and power amps. Can I just connect 1 input and just set the selector to number one and just place the switch inside the box and never use it again?

Why do you want to use the relay board if you need only one input and one output. I guess the volume pot board will be all you need.

Default OK

When I spoke to the vendor he indicated I needed the board, but if I don't I just need to figure out how to connect it directly to the pot board

What did he tell you that you need the relay board for? Maybe if you want to mute or somthing...

Default Transformer?

I am trying to find a good transformer for this kit. What is the minimum VA for a transformer for this kit? The small transformers also have listed two voltages, one for the unloaded transformer and one for the max load transformer.

I have found a 1,9VA transformer which has 9V when fully loaded and 12,9V unloaded. Will that work with this kit?

I used this on from farnell 9530428 each secondary gives me about 14vac . one power the vol unit and the other power MF X-LPS.

As for 1,9VA i do not know i would say just try it . If it does not work just try a higher va transformer.
