So here is a journey related to this amplifier. It sat for 15 years in a shop, my buddies shop. He was never really able to get to the project beyond perfunctory looks and prodding. So I finally got to getting it back as his abilities are something of yesterday. Tom B, this is headed to you. Follow the story here as it should be interesting. I cleaned it up thoroughly today. It has a new transformer I installed while working at CSA, but the startup circuit is not in good shape after a spike, or this is what I was told. I'll look forward to it working again.
