General assembly advices ?
I am currently collecting some advices/ ideas/ hints to be taken care of when building an amplifier with point-to-point wiring.
I have just started to build me a parallel push pull tube amplifier with two KT88 per channel. The schematic is not the problem, it is the hardware layout.
A lot of things can be done wrong.
Here is some example of what I am looking for.
- Correct placement of electronic components. e.g. Transformers always rectangular to each others. This is to minimize cross-talk.
- Short leads where high frequencies might occur (low pass filters)
- direct connection of ground to one point using cables.
- Size of cables ?
- When using shielded cables, always connecting one end of the shield to ground only.
- Twisted pair for anode heating
- One connection between ground and amplifier chassis only.
I was very glad if you could give me some more hints.
Do you know any web links ?
Thanks a lot in advance.
