What ended up being the ohm value of the original green wire wound resistor on the power supply board that was replaced by the small black one from Mouser? I know you said it was 2W but I did not catch the value.
Also, does the 100uf 160 volt cap need to be audio grade. I could not find an audio grade one on Mouser so I bought just a regular nice Nichicon one, but unfortunately they are on back order. Should I be shopping somewhere else for an audio grade one?
Thanks much. Putting my order together to start the power tubes and power board. Wish me luck. Just finished my A12 and it sounds great. Thanks Stephe!!!!
Turns out it isn't a wire wound, it's just a 4.7K 2W resistor. The green color fooled me! And no, that 160V one doesn't need to be audio grade.
