Don't think so. Someone mentioned earlier in this thread about checking the heater voltage, to see if it measures high. You'll need to pop the bottom off to check this. Does the person coming over tomorrow have any experience working around high voltage sources?

I would play it at moderate volume for a while, just to make sure it's working properly.

I would give it a good hour, then if everything seems ok, you can crank it up a bit. You should get it checked out ASAP thou, to avoid any long term damage.

Thanks again for the help. There is no nasty huming or distortion sounds clean. But the little speakers used for testing a rubish. Is it just the heater voltage i need to get cheked. Would have thought the manufacturers would have set the bias voltage wont thay

It's the most obvious place to see if the amp is happy with your mains voltage.
