Extra Special Silver Diner (5/6)



  1. R11 determines the current through LT1021-10 which needs 1.1 mA at 25 degree C. Choose R11 value accordingly. For +/-500V sections; R11 = 400K gives 1.4mA and 0.8W.
  2. Jolly good work! Thank you for the excellent PDF document. Lots of interesting stuff there.
  3. I think you can say the last stage of mini T2 is Q8/V3 and Q9/V4. The signals come via R11 and R12 to base Q8 and base Q9.
  4. I don’t think mini T2 works the way you think, micon21. Here is an excellent description how to build the original Blue Hawaii. There is also a nice explanation how it works. Mini T2 works mainly as the Blue Hawaii does. Read the article (I read it several times – have slow brain) and I think you will get a better understanding how the dots are connected. Good luck and keep on with your good work.
  5. R43,44 are the feedback resistors and R7,8 are the lower tube cathode resistors. LTspice simulation indicates that they all determine the gain of the amplifier. 100K and 100R, as in the original schematics, gives a gain of roughly 1000. With 270K and 2K resistors LTspice indicates a gain of 140. The resistor changes you have done will not change DC voltages at the small tube pins. Maybe your trouble is somewhere else than at the feedback and cathode resistors. But don’t give. It seems you are more than competent to build a mini T2 and, even more important, to fix it if it’s broken. I guess you will have a fully working mini T2 sooner than you now think.
  6. If +220V out from PSU you should have +200V on pin1 and 6 and +69V on pin 2 and 7 upper small tube. Lower small tube should have +71V on pin 1 and 6. Your -334V on EL34 Pin 8 seems to be too high, I would expect something like -400V or lower. This, of course, is in a perfect world. What supply voltages do you read on the amplifier board?
  7. Thanks a lot, guys! I’ve had a terrific and quiet Birthday time with my wife and eldest grandchild - after a "hectic" Christmas celebration with our two children and their families with a half dozen grandchildren.
  8. The answer is No. It doesn’t work. The bottom line is I’ve big trouble get it working. So, I'll put my version of a Tube Hybrid on hold. Probably for a looong time.
