UNPACKING AND INSTALLATION
These amplifiers are shipped without the valves installed. It is necessary to install
the valves first. It is
that the valves are installed correctly or
that is not covered by the warranty will result
. We recommend that your
dealer does this for you.
Installing the valves
Please take care when unpacking the amplifiers as they are fairly heavy and place on a
suitable clean space (table or floor) it is recommend that you store the packaging
materials in case the unit requires shipping at a later date.
Carefully unwrap all the valves. You will find 1x 6SN7WGTA, 1 x 300B and 1x 5U4G
valves for each amplifier.
Looking from the front of the amplifier, the first valve to insert is the 6SN7WGTA valve
which goes into the first valve base at the front of the amplifier.
Inspect the locating pin on the bottom center of the valve and align with the valve base
(the locating pin can only go in one way round due to a locating spigot) and with gentle
but firm pressure insert the valve.
Looking from the front of the amplifier, the next valve to plug in is the 5U4G valve
which goes into the last valve base at the back of the amplifier.
