tfm-45 lightbulbs

Post by bigerik » Sun Mar 28, 2010 10:03 am

The meter lights in my tfm-45 have blown, and I understand that direct replacements are now challenging to find.

Anyone know where I can get a pair?
Thanks!

I believe some have found that LED's are a better choice, but you're going to have to research that one.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Would prefer to stay with an incandescent bulb. Just like the colour more.

And research requires work, and I try to do that as little as possible. :)

I have tfm35s (3) tha has been bolwing lamps so I replaced them with super bright LEDs. I wired two in series with 560 ohm 1/2 watt in serires. Never have to replace them again. Not sure about the 45s if they have the same voltage rating. The tfm 35 has 24volt supply to the circuit. The lamps are wired in series so the oprating voltage for each is 12 volts.
3 Carver TFM35X, Sunfire TruSubwoofer, Magnepan 1.5, Magnepan MMG, Paradigm Monitor speakers, Technics SL-D2, Pioneer Turntable PL-518, Sony Playstation3 blu-ray player, Grado SR60 headphones, Onkyo TSR-805 functions as pre-amp, garden variety interconnects but not cheap and a set of ear.
