Default detailed photos of RH 84 build?

I am going to try my hand at my first tube amp build, I have pretty much settled on the RH 84 I will be using the old Iron from a Zenith 5k29 I have the schematic but I am trying to wrap my head around how I will translate this into the physical layout/ build If anyone has detailed photos(particularly underside) of an RH 84 build that they can share I would very grateful

Note: rotate the output transformers 90degrees from the power transformer if they are going to be this close. Leave a little space.

I did not have the room to do this, therefor the amp had a small amount of hum audible with efficient speakers.

A very nice sounding project, you will enjoy it.

Have fun, be safe.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread too- my google-fu is worn thin looking for build pics of these amp. If anything comes your way, do please share. I just might build one (my first stereo) along with you. Good luck!

I used a 60 post turret board with my RH84 build.
It made it fairly easy to build, as the left and right channels are right next to each other.
You just have to be careful of your wiring layout as not to induce hum.

Cool. That sounds straight-forward and logical to build it this way.
Do you have any gutshots handy?
