Mini Torii Help
01/11/13 at 00:47:09
 
All,

I just received my Mini Torii left channel is absolutely amazing, while the right channel does not work at all. The voltage regulator does not come on. I swapped the OA3 tubes and the problem stayed with the left channel, not with the tube, so the tubes are fine. I am really bummed. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ron

The problem followed the EZ81 regulator, emailed Steve for a replacement.

All is well!

Great. Glad all is well. Get a back up set of tubes. Let us know what you think of the amp. I am listening to mine now, and I like it a lot.  ;D

Yeah I am glad that it followed the tube, for sure!

Any recommendations on tubes other than JJ's?

Obtain some RFT EZ81's from Jim McShane. They work quite well.

Brent Jesse also has a great selection of tubes and is really great to communicate with! As far as the JJ EZ81's.....do yourself a favor and get a set of NOS EZ81 tubes Smiley

You could try some RCA, GE or Sylvania 6CA4.

One other question, should both the rectifiers match brands or is that not important?
