Question about MiniBlok II Schematic


2008-03-05 5:57 pm
Hi All,
I'm a noob amp builder and was hoping someone might be able to help me with a question. I have just built one of Fred Nauchbaur's MiniBlok pp monoblocks and I noticed something unusual about the schematic. http://www.dogstar.dantimax.dk/tubestuf/graphics/mniblok2.gif . One of the electrolytic caps (c5) in the schematic is shown to have the + side going to ground. Is this a typo?, or is it really supposed to be wired this way. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
