I have a Jolida Fusion CD player/transport/DAC, that has a faulty left channel output.
It uses two 12AX7, two 12AT7, and two 12AU7, one of each, in each channel.
I have none of these available, and no valve tester.
I can buy a full set of valves for £150, and replace them all, or troubleshoot, and replace only the faulty one.
The valves in place look quite old, and most markings are gone. I know what goes where.
Anyone have a spare of each one, I could try?
And if I do replace them all, any recommendations for brands to use. I was just going to use Tungston new builds.
Can you swap the valves over one by one
This - see if the fault swaps channel with a particular valve.
If not, I think I have some you can borrow Gregg.
God, I am slow!! Of course.
Don’t have any of those, but can certainly test valves for you.
Haha … after 10 years my first technical reply
I’m off to start building my 300b mono blocks
Still ahead of rabski
Still be quicker than Rabski!
Great trolls think alike…
I have some 12AU7s
I have two 12AX7’s that I can send you.
Yes, please. I will PM you.
Thanks for all the suggestions and offered help.
I was a bit premature.
The problem wasn’t valve related. It was a broken lead off a capacitor.
Very reasonable assumption, just wrong. Glad to hear it’s under control
