O.K. I finally figured out why I couldn't get a reading Across R94 or R95(top and bottom leads of 1 resistor or the other,ED you were right).Before I powered the amp up again I reflowed the solder joints that looked dull and suspect.The joints on the Bias pots looked very suspect,so I added a bit of solder to these connections.I also used a bit of deoxit on the pots as well.I fired the amp up,and finally,after all the frustration and driving the people who were trying to help nuts,I got a steady reading!In my opinoin I think it was bad connections to the board at the pots rather than the deoxit,but I'm sure the deoxit didn't hurt either.Bias was set at 1.7mv,on 1 side,2.0 the other.I set it to 2.5mv on both boards without a hitch,it holds steady 2.5mv bias with no fluctuation.Rail voltage was a bit high,adjusted to 118v.The damping was off by quite a bit,it was at about .600v on 1 channel and .700v on the other.I set it to 1v on both channels.Perfect.
I put everything back together,hooked it back up and What was it you were qouted as saying Ed? OMFG!!!!!!!!! I believe it was.I'll add a Holy shit to that-absolutely incredible!The fuzzyness in the mids/highs that promted this "whitchhunt" is gone,totally.The amp has much more clean (very clean)usable power,and much more "drive" at lower volumes.I thought it sounded good before,but wow talk about opening things up! I'm gonna keep an eye on and check these settings often,when they're off it really makes a gigatic difference.It was way worth the effort.Now I need another!!
Thank you, thank you ,thank you, guys for all the help.Now I have to figure out how to keep the neighbors from calling the cops!
