Be careful about using 7V from 15-20V too since it tends to be hotter on lower voltage, especially with 100VA transformer like that.
Using my digital infrared thermometer, the case and heat sink temperature measure 71.2 and 71.4 degrees F, respectively. By comparison, the front panel of the preamp which isn't even turned on is 69 degrees which happens to be room temperature. :)
I see. That's good then. Do you also use air conditioner? In Thailand, weather is very hot so I'll need to be extra careful about temperature.
Do you also use air conditioner?
When necessary. I live in the southern US where it does tend to be both hot and humid during the spring and summer. I get vastly more heat, however, from the sixteen 6550C output tubes than a power supply barely operating above idle while doing its job.
Then it's time to jump in the pool!
