I believe the noise to be electrical. The reason for mentioning the voltage on the 6.3 volt tap was that is seemed higher than when I first checked it.

So I am left with 2 issues. the voltage I believe I can fix with a higher ohm rated resistor on C3.

I found this thread and am interested in the 2.2uF caps for the output transformer. Can someone verify the B+ tap for the output transformer. I believe they are T3-2 and T2-2

Thanks for the help but that is the power transformer not output transformer.

Then you have it correct in your post #12. Don't think it makes a difference if it's T3-2/T2-2 or the other way around. The difference I have noticed is the soundstage, the way it's presented. One way it's a real centered image. The other way the image is more right left or way outside of speaker placement and my preference. sort of 3D if you will.

I am a little confused. T2 and T3 are the two output transformers. The output transformers fit between the 10 ohm resistor on one side and the plate of the 45 tube on the other. Do I understand you correctly saying installing the 2.2uF cap in either position to ground will change the soundstage dimension?

If so what would give the large soundstage?

Thank for the reply.

No. Your post, #12 asking to verify B+ tap is all I am alluding to.

Got it, either side of output transformer is OK just different presentation.
Are you doing this to get rid of noise?
