RE: TU-882R Headphone Amp - Possible Mods

Hi Mike, Well my 882 flew off the table as a result of a nightmare and will soon go to the generous Mr. Victor to repair a noise problem. If I wasn't so lazy these days I would have plucked the first 2 coupling caps. They probably should have never been there. I'm a tweaker not an electronics designer but I have a few ideas. Let me know if you have already built it. If not I'll have more to say. I've rolled quit a few tubes and the GE 5 star 5670, circa 1970,2, not 3 mica with a halo getter is stunning. I'm a big fan of conductive grease on contacts, pins, rca's... Used carefully they are a huge improvement. I use carbon in the signal path and silver grease in the PS. Silver's too bright for me in the signal path. Well I could go on and on. It's not all about the electronics. You made an excellent choice. Tweaker
