Yes,and there is also a swing of allmost 500V on both sides in opposite fase,that's 1kV between anodes.So ...

That's (56.2/2)x0.7=19.6Vrms.Power on 8ohm, (19.6x19.6)/8=48W ,that's better . With UL somewhat less. So if everything else is ok the OPT doesn't have the right ratio. Mona
If I understand correctly, you are finding a swing of 249V either side of a center tap at a fixed 289Vdc on one half of the primary, and the same swing on the other half of the primary, only 180 degrees out of phase. The common center tap remains at fixed a.c. potential of zero volts, thus the maximum Vp-p can only be 498V anywhere, not twice that value.

Agreed, however swapping EL90s gives me 25Watts RMS straight out the box, which is 14.2vrms before clipping, this is doing my head in as that is not possible from the voltage numbers we just discussed... at 500v pk-pk

 1st April 2015, 06:12 AM #57 STUDIOPLEX   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Dec 2014 I am confused by thread was it EL95's or 6aq5's/EL90's ???? looking for EL95 data sheets in english ?? shouldnt 8 push pull 6v6s be 160 watts or so ? or 80 stereo ? heck we bench tested my Mc Intosh MC75 at 225 watts but distortion rises up a bit . Need a source for the mc output transformers lol .....copy franks rube goldberg winder bill
