What a monster you have made...

I understand completely.

Not to many audio monsters. I use to work on klystron uhf transmitters. Made 833 look like they ran off a car battery. The b+ was 27 Kvdc.

I've played with 6c21's, 833a's, and 813. But have yet to finish one since I always had to many projects and not enough money, LOL.

Im now trouble shooting a kt88 PP triode amp. Nothing fancy or big and pricey.

The OPTs and HV chokes are crated and ready to ship from Belgium to New Jersey. See picture.

The crate weighs 92kg!! I'll be picking it up in person at the airport cargo area, guess I need to bring a friend or two.


Still need to finish drilling and then send off the chassis panels for anodizing, so a few more weeks until assembly, but it's getting there.

For all testing other than that picture there was a 1/4 inch sheet of Lexan between me and the amp, and a fire extinguisher on the floor at my feet! The last thing I wanted was to accidentally have one of the metal guitar strings touch that big power supply while I was holding the guitar.

My mother had me tested, but the results were "inconclusive" so I was sent to a special school for the 5th and 6th grades.....50 years later the "inconclusive" results were obvious!
