IN STRUCTIONS FOR A S SEMBLY OF THE DYNAKIT PA S-3X PREAMPLIFIER
DESCRIPTION
The Dynaco PAS-3X stereo preamplifer is a versatile two
channel control center which permits either monophonic or
stereophonic reprouction from any program source (rec
ords, tap, microphone, radio tuner) with any modern
amplifer. This preamplifer design is most renowned for its
low noise and low distortion, and it provides striking simpl ic
ity of operation while retaining full fexibility for the enthu
siast's subtle adjustments.
The circuit of te Dynakit is unique, and is a subjet of
patent applications. All stges are encloe in fedback
lops and are adjuste for an abolute minimum of distor
tion and noise. Signals going through the preamplifer are
not audibly change by pasage through this instrument,
proving that its characteristic are ideal , since the goal of
any high fdelity euipment is amplifcation and reproduc
tion of the original signal without change.
Th preamplifer esentially has fve part. The power
upply is one part and i common t bth channels. This
power supply contains a full-wave rectifier and a powe.
transformer. A separate retifying system is use to provide
diret current to heat the flament of the tub. This is one
of the reasons why there is practically no hum in the Dna
kt.
The remaining four setion have several functions. There
are eualizer-amplifer stage: high-gain circuits designe
to bring up the level of such device as magnetic phonograph
cartridge and at the sme time t impoe the propr play
back characteristic on the freuency respone. There is one
of thee stage for left and another for the right sterephonic
channels. The remaining two sections consist of the two
amplifying-tone control stagP., one for left and on for right
channel. High level signals uch a those from a radio tuner
are fe through the stage, and the functions of volume
control, tone control, and similar cntrol functions are
accomplishe at thee points in the circuH.
Although fe left and right channels are es ntially inde
pendent, sme control function are common to both chan
nels t facilitte u. For example, one volume control
controls the volume of both channels simultneusly. A bal
ance control is used to adjust the rlative levels betwen the
channels. A blend control, a unique Dynaco feature, permit
cntrollable reduction of the sterephonic effet in order t
eliminate any posibili ty of a "hole in the middle" which
characteriz some types of sterephonic source material
The selector switch also controls both chanels simultne
ously as do the subidiary switching function of scratch
flter, loudnes, etc. However, the tone controls for each
channel are independent, becaus it has ben found that
each channel must individualJy be adjusted for tonal balance
because of diference betwen loudsp akers and rom
acoustic, which reuire such balancing in order to obtain
optimum stereophonic efet.
Some of the hidden attribute of
y
our Dynakit lie in the
unusual circuit arrangement in which there is no possibility
of overloading of input regardles of tho output signal of
the program sourc, nor is there any freuency discrimina
tion a the volume is lowered. Thee common ailment of
other design have been completel
y
eliminated in the Dyna
kit circuit. Some other built in advantge which are not
obvious are covered in te following stion which concerns
the application of the Dynakit.
USING YOUR PREAMPLIFIER
Your D
y
nakt preamplifer has ben deigned to give you
long time performance, e of operation, and complete fex
ibility t handle all contol reuirement of both simple and
elabrate Hi Fi systems. It serve a a central point of the
entire Hi Fi s
y
stem to which everything else connects. On
the rear of the naktar all of the input and output cn
nections. These come in two groups. The uppr row is for
the left or "A" channel The lower row is for the right or
"B" channel. If your Dynakit is use monophonically only,
you can u te uppr row alone, although in some extremely
cmpl ex monophonic syste it might be deirable t use the
lower row a a duplicate set of input, doubling tbe number
of pssible signal source. However, since there are inputs
for sven source on either row, thee should take care of
practical ly all reuirement.
Two of the socket for each charuml are for output. One
of the e, marked "audio output," is connected to your power
amplifier or amplifiers. Th other, marked "tap out," goes
into the high level signal input of a tpe recorder if one is
used in the system. The input marked "radio" on the tape
recorder can be ue for thi function. When using t con
nection, any signals going through the preamplifer can be
rerde by turnig on the tpe recrder while the norma]
playing and operation of the preamplifer are not afecte.
There are a large number of input for each channel. The
thre low level inputs (which incl ude necesary equaliza
tion facilitie for low level sourc matria)) are for magnetic
phonograph cartridge, tape head ( in a tpe dek which do
not have its own eletronic amplifcation), and "spcial."
This special input can be used for a variety of functions
including an extra phonograph, microphone, a diferent
equalization characteristic, etc.
There are four high level input for each channeL One of
thee is for radio, one for multiplex, on for tape recorder
outpul (for tpe recrders which have their own builL in pre
amplifers) , and a spare which cn be use for TV sets or
other high level input sources. If you do not have a multiplex
adaptr or FM tuner with built in mul tiplex output, the
multiplex input cn be used as an auxiliary high level input
source.
Also on the back of your preamplifer are four A outlets.
Two of thee are switched on and of with the front panel
'"on-of" switch, and two are on all of the time. Switche
outlet cn be ue to power your amplifer and tuner, and
thee will go on and off when you switch the preamplifier on
and of. The un-switched outlets should b use for d vice
like the record player or tpe recrder in which mechanical
. witch-of at th apparatus is desirabl .
The l.ne cord come out of the back panel, and this should
not be plugged .n until you are familiar with the function of
all of the controls. When it is plugge in it should be in an
AC power source only. This preampler will not work on
DC current.
The front panel contains all of the operating controls and
switches. These will b discused in turn.
Selector Switch
The selector switch is used to pick the program source t
which you want to l isten. When switching rrom one input to
another this switch takes care of bth channels simultane-
3
ously and also includes the necessary changes i eualiz
tion for the diferent program material. Below this switch is
a small slide switch labeled 'APEIPU'. This is part of the
selection function. When this switch is on "input" (this
is the normal position ), all program material to which the
selector switch is st comes through the entire preamplifer.
When this switch is on "tape," the only signal which can
b heard through the preamplifer is a signal which is
applied to the tape input socket-normlly the output of a
tape playback machine. However, while the switch is on
"tape," the signal source to which the selector switch is
set will be available at the tape output socket on the rear.
The reason for this arrangement is that a tape machine
which has an extr head for monitor purposes can be
recording the program material selected by the selector
switch while fipping the TAPE-INPUT switch back and forth
permits the user to compare the sound source material with
the sound from th tape machine-enabling an A-B com
parisn of the recording process.
Volume Control
The output of both channels is con troll d siruJtaneously
by the volume control. This specially chosen control gives
close tra king of the two stereo channels so that the pro
gram material will remain in balance over most of the
range of the volume control. 'h tap r rat of Ulis control
is chosen to provide a slow increase in volume over the
frst half of rotation and a more rapid volume increas
above 12 o'clock. This enables most satisfactory operation
with both low and high efficiency sp akers. Blow the vol
ume control is the loudness switch which permits you to
add loudness compenstion at lower level s ttings of th
volum control. Because the ear is not as sensitiv to ex
tr me frequencies at low lev Is of sound, when music is
"layed softly, it sounds thinner. Th loudn ss compensa
tion gives incr as d bass below 400 ycles and ffectiv ly
moves the list-ener toward th front of t concert hall.
When the swit h is of, there is no frequency discrimina
tion in the volume control circuit, and this will be preferred
by th high fdelity purist, but most )j teners wm fnd that
its use in mode<ation will add njoyment for listening at
low levels. This sonk corr ction do s not add boom or
muddiness to the reproduction.
Blend 6wirch [6rereo-Mono SeIec:or}
This switch Fulflls the function of blending th propram
material. At extreme count r-clockwlse position the two
stere channels are completely independent. As the control
is rotted clockwi e, th tere efec is progresively elimi
nated. When the control passes th cnter poition to the
point mark d "A + B," the two stt-reo channels are being
added together. This is the prop r p sition for playing mono
phonic records a it is desirable to combine the sound
channels for maximum fidelity when playing monophonic
di cs. The two position lab led "A" and ''B 'are positions in
which monophonic sound sources are sent through boLh
speaker channels. When on "A,'' the left input source appears
through both; when on "B," the right input source appears
through both loudspeakers. For example, if an AM-FM
tuner of the stere type is plugged into the radio socket in
the rear, the "A" position of this witch wm give FM repro
duction through both peakers, and the "B" psition will
give AM reproduction through both speakers. It is al o prac
ticl by U'ing this switch t. u any other pair of input as
separat monophonic sources. For example, it is possible t
u e the "speial" input a a microphone source on the "A"
channel and a monophoni cartridge input on the "B"
channel.

Balance Control
Below the stereo-monophonic switch is a control which
adjusts the balance between the two channels. In center {i
tion eual signals go through both channels. Rotation to one
side or the other reduces the signal in one channel. This is a
fuU range control which will permit cutting out sound from
one channel completely. The need for balancing exists b
cause some program source are not balanced accurately,
and it is also possibl e that the two loudspeakers being use
have diferent efcrencies. Thus a certain amount of balanc
ing is semi-permanent in nature while other balancing func
tions vary from program source to program sourc. Thus it
is frequently necessary to rebalanc when changing rEcords
or when switching the slectm switch.
Tone Controls
There are inclividual bas and trebl cntrols for each
channel. These are of the typ in wllich the center setting is
lat respons without frequency discrimination. These 'on
trois i ncreas or decrease the signal level at freuency ex
t me d pending on whether th y are rotated clockwise or
counter-clockwise. Normal "fiat" use of these controls is in
th c nter poition wi th variation made to correct te tonal
balance to please the tate of the ljstener. It is recomm nded
that thee should be left centered and adjuslments mad
with refer ne to the fats tti ng ratb r than having the user
fall in the habit of pr erving a etting which offers a large
amount of t nal corr ction all th time. The reference pint
hould alwa s be the cent r etling whid1 gives no frequ ncy
discrimination. It i practical als to ue the Lone controls
to correct for record compensation cbaracteristi s of records
of old vi11tag which do not follow the RlAA standard play
back characteristic.
Hclow thc t0n con!ro!s arc loa!cd th scratch filter md
power switch. Th scratch flter, when ' on," gives response
esentia!Jy flat t 7,00 cycles with a rapid roll-of th reafter.
This is a unique confgura tio11 which removes high freufmcy

th conhol will hardly be noticeabl u:l s th r i a signif

GENERAL WIRING PRACTICE
Assembly of Lb Dynakitpreamplifier i quit simp! com
pared to general kit asembly equi.rements. This is true b
cause all critical part of the Dynakit are fa tory asmbled
for you on the printe circuit assemblie. Ot r parts ar lJUt
out in th open thr ugh a fee and unclutte1ed l ayout so
ther is easy a cessibility for wiring or tmubl shooting
purpose. onstruction of your Dynak.t should not take
more than abut eight hours beaus _of these simptifcntions.
Upon opening your kit, check the component with te
parts l.ist. Familiarize yourself with the component; thev
can b identiied by comparison with lh pictorial diagram
and by specifed color coding. Proper C{!or coding will b
mentioned for each resistor as it is use.
Tols reuired fo easy assembly of your Dynakit are
soldering .ron small tip or soldering gun, long .ose pliers,
screwdriver, and wire utters. Although not estial , a low
cost wire stripper and cutter of the type which can b pur
chasd for les than $1.00 will greatly facilitte cutting and
stripping the various leads in the kit.
Go soldering technique is valuable in obtining satis
factory reults from any electronic equipment. ALL SOL
DERING MUST BE DONE WITH ROSIN CORE SOL
DER. There is no warranty on any euipment in which acid
core solder has been used. Make sure t hat te solder u is
plainly marked "Rosin Core." If you have solder on hand
the origin of which is doubtful it is wie to obtain new 50/50
or 60140 rosin core solder. Whenever soldering is required.
the assembly instructiom specify it by " ( S) . " If this sym
bol is not shown after a connection is specife, it indicates
that further connetions wi ll be made at that point before
soldering.
Soldering is accomplished by heating the joi nt with the
iron until solder is hot enough to fow when touched to the
joint. It is not desirable to feed the solder to the iron. It
should be fed to the junction of iron and joint. After the sol
der fows, the iron should b held in place for a few seonds
and remove when it is sen that the solder has contcted
both parts of the connection-the lug and the wire to which
it is connected. It should not show a ball of solder but a
smooth transition from solder to component lead.
Before applying solder the joint should be clean and the
lead should be crimped in place so as to have mechanical
security. It is not necessary to wrap leads around contacts
many times. A single tur and pinching together with long
nose pliers is sui table. After soldering. there should be no
play at thP joint if the lead is wiggled with a pair of pl iers.
It is practical to do all sol dering with a pncil type i ron of
low wattage rating. A small tip is extremely usful when
working in a confined space. If a soldering gun is used, it
should be used with discretion since the amount of heat
available is far more than required for soldering light wires.
Component leads should be trimmed a they are used; the
length should be such that the proper connection can be
made from point to point without strain on lugs or compo
net. Care should be exercisPd not to allow wires to touch
one another unl ss they are actually connected to the same
point.
The instructions which follow have been arranged for sim
plified procedure in which the work can be done without
intrference between the various portions of the wiring. It is
recommended that the instructions be followed on a sttp by
step bais, cheeking of each tgP as it is eompiPtP.CI. Tlw
pictorial diagrams should be used for reference and :til con
nections checked against thee before going on to the next
stage. If the wiring is dot methodically and each step
checked carefully, your preamplifier should work without
dificulty as soon as it is cumpll.t.

screws, lokwashers, and nuts. The screws are in
serted from the bottom of the chasis wit h the screw
heads blow the chassis. Note that the red and red/
yel low transformer wi res go through the hole nearest
the side of the chassis and the black wire go
through the hol e nearer the rear edge of the chassis.
2 ( ) Mount the seven pin socket in te next group of hole
toward the front. ThP socket is mounte from the bt
tom of the chassis and fastene wi th #4 hardware.
Instead of a l ockwasher use the singl e ground l ug on
the front mounting screw but use a l ockwasher on the
other screw. Observe that the open space betwen pi ns
#l and #7 should face the cutout for the fl ter
capacitor.
3 ( ) Mount the quadruple setion fl tr capacitor ( i n a

INSTALLING YOUR PREAMPLI FIER
Your Dyna preamplifer serves as the control center for
the ent i re music system, and is of a qual i ty level which
j ustifes the fnest associated equipment. B sure it is con
nected to AC current somc0s only.
As you have completed it, te PAS-3X is designed to
work into power :mpl i fiPrS wi th i nput i mpPdanC(S of

a centf channPI speaker i s used i n accordance wi th t he
patented Oynaco 3 speaker stereo arrangement. Informa
tion on the proper connection of spekers to the power

request.
Should you desire to use headphones with your music
system, they must be connected to the output of the power
amplifer in accordance with the headphone manufacturer's
recommendations. It is not pos|ble to connect headphones
drectly t the PAS preamplifier.
When installing the preamplifer in a cabinet, ventilation
is not critical unless continuous duty operation is antici
pated, for the preamp produces very little heat. When it
is panel mounted, a supporting shelf ush with the bottom
of a 13'o" x 31 o/a" cutout is suggested, and the rubber feet
are not used. A PBK bracket kit is available from Dynaco
for $2 which takes the place of the shelf, and accommo
dates panel thicknesses up to 1". No COD ple.
ADDITIONAL STEREOPHONIC CONTROL FUNCTIONS
Thos who are expf.rimentally inc]jned may occasional l y
want two stereo functions which are not usually required
on a preamplifer because of standardization in all program
material . Th(e special functions are phase reversl and
channel reversal . Both can be added easily with small
double-pole-double-throw switches i the speaker connec
tions to the power amplifer.
A third, or center channel , output can also b added at
the output of the power ampl i fer. A request to Dyaco
for ei ther of these data sheets will provide detailed

ENJOYING STEREOPHONIC SOUND
Stereophonic sound ofers an important enhancement of
enjoyment of your hi gh fdel i ty system. The proper setup
and use of your sterephonic system wi l l bring considerable
satisfaction. However, sterephony i nt roduce probles i n
hi gh fdel i ty reproduction whi ch can di minish your en]oy-
ment of your hi f system unJ ess thee probl ems are under
stood and corrected. These few notes on the sub]ect shoul d
assi st material ly in the instal l ati on and use of a stre
phonic systm which adds to your l i steni ng pl eaure.
The piece of equi pment to be ue should b as similar
as possi bl e i n each channel. This i particularl y true for
the loudspeaker to be used. Di fferent types and brands of
speakers have very great di fferences in freuency response
and other important characteristic. If, for example, one
speaker has a pf'ak i n response at a certai n freuency where
the other doe not, the sterephoni c bal ance wi l l be change
at that frequency. The need for frequent rebalancing is due
to this type of di si mi larity.
ThPre has been a relatively hi gh proportion of dj ssatis
faction wi th stere which has arisen because of the attempt
to attach an i nferior second channel t complete a system.
If this channel difers from the frst channel it freuently
detroys any potential bneft of sterephonic sund.

Thl' proper reproduction of monophonic discs through
t hl: ster systPm req ui rEs thf canct'l l ation of identicl sig
nals 1 of opposite phase l s that there is no unwanted
, ertical si gnal component in the output. This reuire ei ther
t he para I lei i ng of the two si de of the crtridge or the
paral l rl i ng of the outputs of idrnt ical preamps. If the pre
amp. are :l i ghl l y di fiH' nl . l i lt vertical components cannot
bf t l i mi nate propNiy [n t hf Dynakit preampl ifier, the
cri t ical components which dt>tNmi ne the respnse charac
teristi c of the preampl i fier pl ayback characteristic have a
tolerance of onl y 1 % so that thi s problem cannot cause
di fficul ty. Paral lel i ng i s done by using the "A + B" posi t ion
of t l w Sl frr-Mono Swi tch.
Channcl phasi ng i s a problem of stere which is readi ly
sol ved. once understood. I f. on a si ngle sound, one speaker
cone move i nward whi l e the othN move out , the system
is not properl y phased, and the sound area betwen the
spakers wi l l lack homogcnfity. Al l tapes and al l disc are
now reproduced so that t hei r phasi ng is cnsi stent. There
fore, oncP phasi ng of the pl ayback equi pment is set i t can
be mai nti ned for al l tape and disc sources wi thout further
change.
To check for proper phasing, play a monophoni c reord
i ng so that one signal comes t hrough both channels. Then
move back and forth between the speakers. If phasing i s
crrect . there wi l l be a smooth transi ti on of sound betwen
the speakers. If it is not corrPct, thPre wi l l be an i nter
mediate area where the sound wi l l shi ft from one to the
other. l f phasing is not corret, it can be reti fed by in
terchangi ng the two l eads between one of the amp! i fier
channels and i ts assoiatd speaker. There shoul d be no
need to change phasi ng once the system is set up properl y.
If there is a drop in volume using a nonophontc Upe
or record when switchi ng from "Stemo" to "A+B", this
i ndi cates probable incorrect phasing of the cartridge or
tape head connections. An interchange of ground and ''hot' '
leads to one of the cartridge channels, or of the two leads
to one channel of the lp head wi l l remedy tills type of
i ncorrect phasing.
Hum is another problem which the stereo cartridge can
i ntroduce. In some cases the use of a common ground lead
on the two i nputs wi l l i ntroduce hum. Most stereo pi ckup
manufacturers provide separate ground connections for
each channel by using four cartridge terminals. The cable
shields of the two channels shoul d be kept sparated. When
a three terminal cartridge arrangement is used, i t is useful
to intertwine the two shiel ded cables.
Positioning of the loudspeakers will affect the quality of
your stereophonic reproduction. General l y, moderate dis
tances of si x to ten feet alon- the same wal l provide the
best efect. If greater spaci ng is required, there may be a
"hol e-in-the-middl e" efect. If this happens, the "blending"
of the Lwo channel s with the Stereo- Mono switch can im
prove the naturalness of the sound. However, i f extreme
distance is reui red betwen loudspeakers, a thi rd channel
may be useful ( requiring a center loudspeaker ) . I nforma
tion on adding this is avai l abl e from Dynaco on request.
The most basic consideration of the instal lation and
use of a sterephonic music system is that stereo alone
does not create real ism and hi gh qual i ty sound. Two l ow
grade stereo channels will not give the qual ity of one hi gh
grade monophonic channel . There is no substi tute for hi gh
quali ty components, careful ly instal l ed.

IN CASE OF TROUBLE
Al though your Dynakil has ben made as t rouble fre as
pssi ble there is al ways the possi bi Uty that a mistakf in
assembly or a defective part wi l l prevent i t from function
i ng properl y. I f any difcul ties are encountered, the fol
lowing routi ne should b fol lowed.
Check the wiring careful ly, making sure that al l solder
connections are frm, that adjacent parts are not touching,
and that no pieces of sol der or wi re cl ippings have gone
across adjacent points to cause shorts. Make sure the TAPE
I NPUT switch is on INPU.
Are the tube heatfs l i ghted? Thf>SP do not l i ght bri ghtl y
but should b visi bl e undlr di m l i ght. If tubes are not
l ighted, thi s indicates a possi ble open connection through
the heater ci rcui t or in one of the tubes. The pil ot l i ght
is on the same circui t as the tube heaters so that i f it
l i ghts, i t i ndicates that up to that poi nt the heater ci rcui t
i s sat i sfactory_ However, if t he pi l ot l i ght glows, and none
of the four 1 2AX7 t ubs l ight, there is probably a defect
i n the DC heater supply which consists of the selenium
rectifer and the two l arge 2. 00 mfd tubul ar capacitors.
1 f t he tubes l i ght on one printed ci rcui t boa_rd and not
on the other, there are two possi bl e causes: one, that the
connections to Lhe board on one side a re not made properly;
two. that thfre L ' a defective tube on one of the bards.
If one tube on the board has an open beater the other wi l l
not l ight becuse the two are wi red i n serie. A si mple test
for this is to transfer the two t ubes from the other printed
ci rcui t board to se if they l i ght in the sme sockets. If
they do, then the faul t was i n one of the ori gi nal tubes.
If t here i s no signal at al l , it is frequentl y possible to
fnd the trouble through isolation of the specific sedion of
the preampl i fer which is at fau l t . Si ncf' there are two inde
pendent ci rcuits, each of which is di vi ded i nto two hal ves,
there are four possi ble poi11ts to whi ch trouble can be
isolated. A si mple procedure can be established.
If no signal comes through any input. ei ther radio or
phono, on either channel , the faul t is probably i n the power
supply. This cmprises lhe 1 2X4 tube, Lhe quad fl ter
capacitor, and the DC supply for the heaters. Fai l ure in
any one of these points wi l l prevent any signal si nc this
power supply is common to al l parts of the circui t .
I f sound i s obtained on one channel only, then trouble
shooting can be simpl i fed by comparing the two channel s
-by interchanging tubs between the two channels to test
the tubes, and by comparing wi ri ng between i nput and
output sockets and the selector switch to see what difer
ences exist. The switch and the sokets are symmetrical
with respect to the two channels.
Once the troubl e is isol ated to one channel, i t is possible
to l oal i ze it to ei ther the PC-6 circuit ( the ampl ifer
equal i zer secti on i or to the PC-5 ci rcuit ( the tone control
section ) . If a radi o wi l l produce a si gnal but the phono
graph will not, for example, the faul t is in PC-6, the
ampl i fer-equal izer section. However, if the defect is in the
tone control section, the signals wi l l be avai l abl e at the
tape output of the channel i nvol ved, but not at the audi o
output. A si mpl e test i s to bike one of the output connect
ing cables from the tape output of the inoperative channel
to the phono input of the operati ng channel . Set the stere
mono selector on stereo, and pl ay a record ( selector switch
on ' ' phono" ) wi th the input connected onl y t the i nopera
tive channel . Tf a si gnal comes through when this is done
ven if the signal is highly distorted due to overloadi ng
by misusing the circui t-this indicates that the frst part
of the inoperative channel is worki ng and the dificul ty
l ies solely in the tone control section, which contains the
PC-5 printed circui t board and related components.
Some hum and hiss will al ways exist at hi gh volume
settings-depending on speaker eficiency-but of course
this woul d be masked by the l oud sound. However, i t
shoul d be negl i gi ble at normal l istening levels. Hiss wi l l
al ways be apparent at hi gh volume control settings. With
the vol ume control high, and no i nput connected, hiss
should b louder than hum on the phono, tape head and
special inputs.
If noise is heard in the preamplifer, al l inputs shoul d be
disconnected. If the noi se disappears, t hen troubl e shooting
shoul d b confnPd to thf accessory equi pment. Li kewise.
i f the noise i s removed when disconnecting the preampli
fer from the amplifer, then obviously it is in the pream
pl i fer. On the other hand, i f the same noise exists after
di sconnecti ng the preampl ifier from the power amplifer,
t hen t he problem is in t hP power ampl i fier.
If t he noise drops when the vol ume control is turned
down. then it is i n the PC-6 section of the circuit or the
selector switch wi ri ng. Jf the noise i s constant at any set
ting of thE vol ume control , it is in the PC-5 section which
fol l ows the volume control .
Hum which is defni tel y i n t he preampl ifier i s usual ly
causEd by poor )pad oriPntation or bad solder connections
( particulal'ly ground points ) . Check solder conntctions by
re- heating them, especial ly at eyelets #4 and # l l on
PC-6. eyelets #l and #8 on PC-5, and the mount ing l ugs
on the quad capacitor used for grounding purposes. Be sure
that t he wi res going to Pyelets #4, # 1 1 and # 1 6 on PC-6
are positioned as shown in the underside photograph. Al so
position t he various twisted leads exactly as shown in this
photo. Keep AC leads close to the back panel as shown.
Hiss is invariably caused by a tube or noisy resistor.
Fi rst interchange the t ubes on a given ci rcui t bard to see
if the hi ss now reverses channel s. It is unl ikely that more
t han one' tub woul d be noisy.
The resistors which may cuse hiss are the 1 50,000 ohm
and 10 0 ohm resistors in the plate and cathode for the
first stage on the PC-6 board. However, if hiss is apparent
wi t h Lhe vol ume control turned f ul l y of, U1e troubl e wil l
be on t he PC-5 board; hpe thp 470,000 ohm and 4700 ohm
resistors in the frst stage on that board are suspect. Ot hers
of the same val ue shoul d be substi tuted. Note that the
1 50,000 ohm and l 00 ohm resistors on PC-6 are a very
low noise t ype and, if substitution of another resistor does
not lower the hiss, then the ori ginal one should b
reinst. l ied.
Crackl i ng or . ntermi ttent noises are usual ly caused by
poor sol der com1ections. Pay particul ar attention to the
solder connections on the sel ector swi tch and to terminals
#2, #3, #7, #8 and #9 on PC-6. To check for a bad
connection, pul l at each lead going to a joint with long
nosed pl iers and reheat or resolder the connection as
necessary.
Please note that when U1e cover is not on the preampl i
fier, the hum level wil l b many times higher than when
the cover is on and properl y secured wi th the sheet metal
screws. Therefore, test for hum or noise only with the cover
in pl aeP.
Another aid to trouble shooti ng which requires a good
grade of vol tmeter ( preferabl y a vacuum tube vol tmeter
or a 20,000 ohms per volt meter i can be the taking of
vol tage measwements. These should be compared with the
enclosed vol tage chart. Deviations of greater than 20%
from these vol tages may be an i ndication of malfunction
ing, al though deviations as hi gh as 50% will not cause
complete lack of sound.
In the event that trouble shooting wil l not correct the
probl em, factory consul tati on is avai l able wi thout charge,
and factory service at moderate charge.
