I havn't shut this thing off since I did the mod. It keeps getting louder and louder and better and better. And it's in stages. Meaning during a song it will just get louder all at once.
Any ideas why?
I guess the diodes are braking in and passing more current.
I'm off to do the other one.

Hi Tom,

Yes, that's typical of an underrun heater. Just a few degrees more, and a big change.
Frank is right about the linearity, but other parameters associated with the circuit will suffer when the current passed is lower than the design value.

Cheers,

That's not considered as normal break-in observation.

Cheers,

Indeed not, it's the valves sputtering into life, as the internal temperature rises.

Really, they'll work best at the rated heater voltage. Give 'em a chance...
