Post Subject: Amplifiers training with filaments stand-by voltage?Posted by Romy the Cat on: 6/30/2007


Turned today my playback - the fist time after a week of break. What a miserable sound!!! I will keep it running all weekend and I hope it will be better tomorrow. 

In the posts above we blame capacitors in the phenomena but I wonder if it might be the tubes themselves, sine SS equipment has no such a phenomena, or at least has it to the lessen  degree. (Though I do admit the I did nit live a lot with many SS amps)

If it might be so, then perhaps it would make sense to drive tube’s filaments when amps are off with ~2V, sort of a stand-by voltage…

I wonder how it will affect the tubes logetivery... and if it resolves the needs for the “amplifiers training”…
