Re: Next Year's project

Oh, and I've downloaded the manual/schematic from the radio museum website. The document is dated February 1947.

Re: Next Year's project

I've had a notification from UPS that they'll be delivering it today so some pictures soon. It'll be hard to resist the temptation to get stuck in but I have to finish my DSD decoder, 6C33C amp and 300B HPA projects first!

Good news Dave, I hope it all goes well for you both.

Will we have the critical mass for a southern AT meeting, perhaps somewhere along the M4?

Re: Next Year's project

Thanks for the advice and encouragement chaps.

The seller has shipped it today so I shouldn't have to wait too long to get a feel for what I've taken on. I'll post some pictures when it arrives.

Re: Latest DSD Decoder Project

I have too many projects active at the moment so decided to focus on getting this one done and dusted so I spend a few hours over the weekend assembling and testing the power supplies and installing the software onto the beaglebone.

Re: Remember These?

Steve, Wolfgang reminded me to size the heatsinks generously so that they stay at a stable temperature to avoid thermal issues making the amp unstable; he's a lot more experienced in this stuff and will be more specific. For my 6C33C I purchased a Modushop Dissipante chassis that has two heatsinks, ...
