The amp has been completed and has now been under testing for a few days… It has surpassed my expectations.
Board is now in and wired… Ok ……….extra bonus points to anyone who finds what may be "out of sorts"… I know we have some tech minded individuals here… Where is waldo???? Go to our Facebook Page for the discussion.
When we last saw the amplifier the board was just dropped in. Before wiring it all up I like to get the input jacks in. These are plastic insulated jacks as found on most British amps. They are plastic to insulate them from the chassis and allow for any point in the chassis to be used for grounding the input. I am going to tie them to the quietest point which just happens to be located directly under them.
Here we see the progress made on the Rogers Stevens amp. This post is more photo heavy as I feel I have said quite a bit already today.
Before going on to todays progress reports I thought I would take a minute to say a few words about lead dress and circuit design. For some this is repetitive and for others it will be eye opening… But I really think everyone can benefit from these truths. MORE --->
This is the chassis just after attaching the xformers, sockets, and ground plane points. Lots a wiring to follow. Take special note of these ground plane points, they are located in many different parts of the chassis. MORE--->
Panel time. What we have here is a reverse engraved gold plexi panel, hot off the laser.
Lets just keep rolling on this… Rogers' amp!! This is the circuit card in progress.. here I am attaching the leads before putting the card into the chassis. MORE --->
