Home Tube DIY Asylum

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

Four legs good, eight legs bad???

"Perhaps I am stating the obvious but :

What about the inherent degrade in the solder connections of all the leads, going into the 2A3 socket's four pins ?"

Indeed, a very good question. I didn't understand his response, which was "The simple answer is : there are NO pin alternatives to the 2A3 pin arrangement." I don't think it adequately addressed your question, though.

Your point, I think, was that in each case there are wires coming through the tube envelope and then presumably soldered onto the pins, and so why is one case supposedly worse than the other?
