  1. You may have to turn down the Comp knob since it is providing gain to the detector and the photocell. If it is too high, the compression clamps down hard on the signal. regards. Jack
  2. I will first test voltages with no tubes in place. If that looks basically okay, then I will put in the rectifier tube and check voltages again. Once the supply voltages are confirmed to be okay, I move on to inserting the other tubes and checking them (preamp first). Best regards, Jack
  3. This is the "Master Links" thread. It will be edited and cleaned up periodically to keep everything in an easy-to-find order on one page.
