    • Quick thinking Claude! It took me four strokes to realize I was I right back on the green where I started.
    • I sent you a message please let me know if your getting rid of the x 30 thank you Tom 
    • Cool!  Amazing to see a response to something I posted fifteen years ago!  Erik M. and I are one and the same.    ...miss Dee...
    • But wait. Wasn't it Paul Klipsch who said "There is no such thing as hi-fidelity. Either it has fidelity or it doesn't." 😎
    • Blackbird, there is no reason to leave these particular amps on constantly.  All you are doing is aging your tubes significantly and prematurely.  It is possible to install a standby switch on the B+ plate/anode supply so that ONLY the filaments receive current.  I am extremely familiar with this circuit and also own a pair.  I also know that, as designed, there is an aspect of the power supply that could use some slight alteration:  As Marvel mentioned, the 10uf cap is the input to DC ripple filter, and is the first capacitor immediately after the rectifier.  If you are using the GZ37 rectifier, that particular tube should ideally not see more than 4uf in this type of power supply.  While it most likely would not present a problem in cases where the amps are used for a few hours and powered off, leaving them on for extended periods as you say you have is simply not a good idea - particularly given the fact that this circuit does not have a high voltage standby switch.  If there is one thing that can damage components it's heat, and your amplifiers definitely show signs of that.   Given what you have, very helpfully said about them, I would stop using them (including switching them on and off to listen and look for problems) immediately and take or ship them to a good tech.  The 47uf Solen is the final stage cathode resistor bypass capacitor.  There could very likely be more than just one problem with them, and to just put in expensive new capacitors does not address causes beyond age alone.  More importantly, DO NOT poke around inside yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing.  That big black missile-like thing is the main high voltage filter capacitor (which these days sometimes sell for nearly $2,000 used — rather ludicrous IMO, but not my money).  Such capacitors can hold a serious charge for surprisingly long periods of time, and can deliver a painful shock.     These are really nice amps, and I will also never sell mine.  It is worth the wait to have them properly checked out and repaired as needed. Damaged amps can also damage speakers, so I would really consider taking them out of service now until they are repaired and tested.  But take heart in the fact that they can most definitely be fixed and made to perform as new.  
    • I have enough speakers and a Marantz 6011 that processes 11 channels that I can run pretty much anything I want.  I am plenty happy with 5.1 for TV/Movies and for TV watching 3.0 is even better.   I think what you will really like is how much HDMI simplifies your cabling.
    • Think you are doing good as you are. If you want HT,a 5.1 is all that is needed unless you're money is burning a hole in pocket.2 channel now is what I call for. Enjoy your time deciding...
    • Solid advice above from dtel.
