I finished my first amps a couple of months ago, now they are happily running.

Time to move to step 2 and get something upgraded/experimented.

I would try to bias the grid leaving the cathode alone and it should be quite simple as my amps are transformers coupled all the way ... but ...

... how to do that when you have DHT?

I mean, I can easily give -x volt to the CT of the input splitter transformer and -y volt to IT's CT but, as there will be no resistors in the cathode path to ground, I am not pretty sure I can just connect one side of the heater/cathode to ground without center pot or hum balancing resistors.

I could not find any example?!?!? HELP!!

Just for reference by amps are:
-XLR in
-input trans for splitting duties
-6H30pi PP
-interstage LL1660
-2A3 PP
-OPT LL1623 5.6K:8

:rolleyes:

PS bitches brew ... that was the very first CD I played on the amps
