LD 1+ and 5654

Post by msknight »

Hi Folks,

I'm investigating valve audio and started with a less than spectacular experiment with some units using 5654 valves. (Capacitors blew... possibly due to the increased voltage drawn by the heaters, but I'm no expert)

I have decided to try an LD 1+ as my next experiment, and if I have technical problems here then I'm going to forget about valve audio.

My reading is that I need to alter the settings in the LD 1+ to account for the Philips and Telefunken 5654 valves that I have.

It should be with me sometime next week, but I thought I'd get some advice, in advance, extra to the manual, as to what I need to do in order to avoid another smelly, expensive explosion. :-)

Thanks in advance for any help.

The 5654 tubes can be used without any changes from the default settings.

Thanks! The less I have to mess with something, the happier I am :-)
