RE: 5R4GY and filter cap values


There were too many responses for me to respond to personally. But I would like ti give everyone a huge thanks. I am not an engineer and don't pretend to be one, though I've picked some of it up from my uears of slinging solder in jukebox amps.

I now know specifics of tube power supplies more than I did 48 hours ago...by no means an expert and far from it...but at least I now have the right path.

I put the rectifiers in my amps last night and there were no ill effects. Ran them for 5 hours and they sounded great. Look even better having those huge hanging filament rectifiers there.

Yeah...I got silly and wanted to run the things because of how they looked.

And yes....I checked the tubes in my Precision 612 before attempting to use them.
