colnago, I too had measured before I installed them but also before I added a different value C5 and removed R4 to put the choke in so I wanted to check what the DVM said and compare it to what the meters said.

I'll tighten them up and see if that works then try and measure again.

Are the positions accurate. R18 and R29?
As R29 feeds the CCS chip.

The reason to have these meters on the TSE is that one needs to adjust the bias on the power tubes. My understanding is that the SSE was designed with fixed bias, so there is no need to adjust the bias.

I'd defer to others as to where they would go in the SSE circuit.

True the sse is pre biased , was hoping to add additional vintage look to a vintage style amp.
If anyone has managed to get these meters working on an sse please let me know.

Or if a suitable Vu meter would be better I would consider swapping these in.

Thanks

Try putting the meters in series with the cathode resistors of the power tubes, R27 and R17, and see if that works for you.
