Hi Al, Yes,fitted the Obbs at the same time(replacing a pair of Auricaps),though these were in a less critical part of the circuit than the SCR's from what David said on the Triode Systems website,so I'm putting the big hike in performance down to the SCR's as I'd not really noticed a difference wit...

I think not...) new Tung Sol KT66's a few weeks ago(Ok they were only 30 quid a matched pair delivered).Tried the 66's first for a while.Hmm.. nope,the Reflektor 5881's walked all o...

Yeah sure no problem.Were you planning on taking anything? I'll have to confirm nearer the date as although I still have a place in Leeds,I now work up in Scotland,returning regularly to see my daughter,so will see nearer the time,as work commitments may get in the way.

Wanted-Cathode resistors

I'm after a pair of 24k or thereabouts 6w resistors for the cathodes on the driver valves of the Mr Liang.Anyone have anything suitable they are happy to part with? Beer vouchers waiting.

Regards,Ali.

Hi Swampy,no I didn't think they made it.Looking at the construction,it looks just like the basic Shuguang 845,with the mica top.It looks just a tarted-up version with a nicer looking base(and a 90 quid each price tag..) I've not changed the resistors yet,but have ordered some SCR and Obbligato caps...
