The series strap button works pretty well, no major issues. I think there's a big relay circuit involved, and sometimes it takes a couple of presses to latch up.

Ah, the Edsyn, that's my lucky iron. I love it.

It does sound a bit different. I think the big coil retains much of the liveliness and triodey richness of the light bulb version, whereas the iron choke and CCS versions begin to sound slightly more conventional to my ears (and with my speakers)

They're all good, but if I had to choose, the big dumb coil remains my favorite for now.

I haven't yet experimented with different caps. I hear those Clarity caps impart lots of ooey-gooey goodness.

Don't know if it will handle it in case of short, but you are in no production line to be so eventful anyway. Having the current knobs fully right?

Yes, fully right.

I think you're right about the series relay handling a short, probably better to use a heavy wire to connect them in a more permanent installation.

They have been pretty robust though, and have survived a couple of dumb mistakes in the lab.

The supplies supplies pictured are the 50V X2, so I could try those 100V DeLites.

Linear.

I have one of their switching supplies, but it's noisy.
