RE: voltage drop


But we're back to the question of why you are dropping so much voltage across the output transformer.

What is the DC voltage at the top of the output tube's cathode resistor?

Knowing that will tell you how much current the output tube is drawing.

BTW Even though the 200 ohms resistor is connected properly it still needs to be down at the tube socket under the chassis, not up by the plate cap.
