Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: Thank you for that info.

Did the supply have a critical inductance input choke?

If not then that 5ar4 could have been over cooked by excessive peak currents caused by too high a value first cap.

I've cooked rectifiers tubes and power transformers that way.

What is your audio circuit this time?

It shouldn't be hard to calculate the total current draw.
