    Was that an Accuphase C-200?

    Sad day for radio astronomy

    They didn't hear anything for 57 years and decided that instead of letting it fall, they would cut it down...

    PL 400...the beginning

    Yup, that is where I want to locate my PL400 switch as well, on the right behind the faceplate. But I like the look of the switch you used. You probably plucked it from your parts box and the Mouser label is long gone. I have some like that...

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    Your voltages are now correct and it is amazing that it worked at all at half voltage. The OPAMPs do have a wide voltage range, but you were probably not getting full volume levels coming from the outputs. Your rewiring work looks very good. I would lift the wiring in the area of the repair as...

    PL 400...the beginning

    Joe, can you check that P/N again? I ordered (1) Mfr. #:100DP3T8B13M1QEH and received this: I like the one in your picture better than this monkey-fisted switch, maybe Mouser pulled the wrong part?

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    I'm not advocating for dual voltage so that you can take it out of the country. Having dual voltage retains the original transformer, and gives the ability to maintain the original design of the export model". In other words, the best of both worlds without rewiring in case you want to restore...

    3 WOPL's in the pipeline (+1)

    Time to build another one. The WOA kits are even better now.

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    I don't know when PL started offering the dual primary transformers. I always thought it was close to the Series II era. Maybe Ed can chime in on this.

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    You have a rare PL2000 Series II factory export wired for 220V. I don't think the folks at PL offered (or contemplated) the PL2000 Series I would ever be exported, so I don't think that they made the Series I for 220V. That small transformer (T1) has a dual 120V/220V primary. Clearly, the cable...

    Phase Linear 700 Series II Clair Bros Serial Numbers

    Sniff, I have two more Clair Bros Audio PL700 Amps to add to your list. They will both be getting the full WOPL treatment. They are S/N 9469 (This one has "A.H." engraved on the side) and S/N 12078. I think we are getting closer to converting every Clair Bros Audio amp to WOPL and that is quite...

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    Most of my music is live recordings (hard to record, but brutally honest) of classic rock. You know, the stuff we all know the lyrics to, or maybe no lyrics. Speakers are JBL Pro clones of the now obsolete 4196B, a two-way, 4 cuft, all-purpose system with a 15" woofer, 2425J compression driver...

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    Could we see a picture of your three-prong cord PL2000? I have attached a Service Manual for the PL2000/2000 II and page 9 has a schematic of the power supply. I do not see a three wire power cord, but yours could have been a special order. Further, the 117VAC in the PL2000 immediately becomes...

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    Here is a link to the WOPL power cords I use. I buy 5-6 at a time. they are brand name, very high quality cords. These don't get too warm when you crank up the volume to Mach 10. https://tinyurl.com/y552fyvt

    Question for Joe or builders with appropriate test equipment.

    Like this... Mouser P/N 693-6100.4115 $1.15 each With this installed, I use a 3 Conductor, 14AWG, 300V cord.
