    First Valve power amp Valve question

    I could only see 4 ots in there but only had a quick look then put the base cover back on. Think i will take your advice and let someone know knows about these things take a look.

    First Valve power amp Valve question

    i know nothing about bias but there is 4 pots inside onder each of the valves so i am uessing this is for setting bias? Is this something to leave to someone who knows alot about valve amps or could i check bias myself? really doesnt bother me looks wise with one being different. Can the 6550 valves be switched for diffrent compatible valves to give different characteristics or is it a case of " thats what the amp is built for " ?
  12. Recently bought a Valve power amp with Lux transformer which i am guessing is one of Luxman's kits? It sounds very nice It has 3x svetlana 6550b and one unbranded 6550b which is very slightly smaller,2x brimar12bh7 and 1 mullard ec( something)5 lettering is missing i am guessing ecc85 ? WOuld it be a good idea to stick to the valves that are already in or switch over for new ones? I was thinking with one of the 4 6550b being a different brand it may not be performing as it could?

    Advice needed please??

    Thanks for all your advice. Think i will call 101 and just let them know then at least they have it on record incase he turns up here threatening me and i have to call 99 for any reason. Hopefully no one else on here sells anything to him and ends up in the same situation.
