"What an excellent piece! Thanks very much for posting this; it'll be where I'll point folks from now on." Merlin's site is invaluable for builders of valve amps, I'd have struggled without it.

Issues of "grounding" are subtle, maybe in some large part because we believe schematics, where elephant-in-the-room assumptions are the usual case. Merlin B's piece is crystal clear in breaking down the assumptions into good mental models. Once you have a good (and real) model, you can fly on your own.


Bob Cordell's book (highest possible recommendation) additionally discusses the signal ground to chassis ground connection in detail. And JNeutron has posted some ground-breaking (NPI) next-gen thoughts about system wiring issues in the John Curl Blowtorch thread, mostly lost in the noise there, but well worth the effort.


All good fortune,
Chris
