    Valve info

    Sorry. Personally, I have no idea.
  2. You mention the output valves in the video. Seems they are Chinese. Enthusiastic review here: https://www.audioasylum.com/reviews/Amplifier-Tube/Unison-Research/Smart-845/tubes/18964.html

    True. Might use them in a re-build.

    AC Panel Meter

    Is there any place that specialises in vintage ones, Mr Awkward? The one I got I just got it of ebay.

    AC Panel Meter

    Thanks. I was going to try that when I could sort something out.

    AC Panel Meter

    Well thanks for the replies. Yes, it would be easy enough to get a modern digital item, and just use that. But I do like a nice moving iron meter. I got a nice vintage one last year for an amplifier project. It has prongs that would have plugged into a socket, originally, which I've never seen before. Cleaned it and put it away, wondering how it should be connected not wanting to burn it out. Anyway, just had a look inside, and it has 3 resistive elements inside wired in series with the coil. Hard to say if they are coils or carbon elements. Was able to measure one and got a reading of about 7K. So the coil isn't simply connected to the terminals. Thanks for your input.

    AC Panel Meter

    Apologies beforehand if I appear to be an idiot. Can a (300V) panel meter, as below, be connected direct to a voltage, as is? Or does it need to be on the end of a dividing network? I. I'm still not sure. Thanks.
  11. Fair enough. Not a fan though of the Captain Nemo look of some amps and preamps. Sent from my K3 using Tapatalk
  12. Really? I'm awaiting the arrival of a couple of "BUM" headshells. Oh yes...Regret dallying about the purchase. Originally found it at £8, and looking next time, it had gone up to £11.50. There was only 5 - so went for a couple. There's a less substantial item in a few colours - including pink. Can't seem to upload images on Tapatalk.
