Moving along... The rectifiers are in: I'm sure I checked at least 10 times to make sure that all of the polarities are correct. Next came the smoothing caps on the rectifiers, some nice blue C0G ceramics: Followed by some initial wiring: I had many concerns about heat damage and corrosion with the original wiring in this amp, so I have continued with the 22759 mil-spec etfe as hookup wire, as well as some 14awg high temp braided wire for the link from the filter caps to the negative speaker terminal. As I brought up in a separate thread, it has been somewhat of a headache deciphering the wire gauges used here. Almost all of the wiring used, unless I am being completely oblivious, has no indication of AWG. There are numbers that correspond to US standards for appliance wire, but nothing seems to correlate to wire size. The solution has been to use the strand count and individual strand diameters to cross reference to an appropriate AWG. All for now..
