This post was originally created to because I was having issues with the build of a MOD 800 2204 Small Box kit from Modulus Amplification. I’ve since removed some of the content because it’s no longer relevant, the issues being resolved.
The issues I was having turned out to be trivial (primarily a single resistor with the wrong value; the 2.7k cathode resistor on the first preamp triode was 270k by mistake) and were easily sorted. I’ve decided to leave the pictures here in case they may be of interest, perhaps to someone building the same amp.
I’m not saying that any of what’s contained in the photos is correct, nor am I saying they show the right (or best) way to do things. This is just what I did. The amp works. What can I say?
A slight detail for those that might be building the same kit; I changed the preamp sockets from those originally supplied.
