    That's about typical for our SB-220s. It's mostly a function of the DC resistance of the HV transformer windings vs the amplifier's IANODE idle current. At maximum current, the drop will be greater.

    Hi all. Did not work on the Amp last night. My son was in a serious car wreck last evening. He is ok, but I won't be working on the Amp for a couple of days. Don't want anyone to think I disappeared.

    I hope he is OK.

    That amp will wait. We will too.

    It is advisable not to work on gear with dangerous voltages in it when you are distracted. That is a very good way to end up in the morgue.
    WE DON'T want to see that happen.
