Most of the components have been installed. Adding the diodes and wiring the switch for the solid state side of the rectifier circuit is all that is left to do. The terminal strip layout seems to have worked out well, the leads have mostly been kept short, the grounds for the preamp section and power sections of the layout have been kept separate from each other.
At initial power-up, a Variac will be used slowly bring up the voltages and gently form the capacitors. A current limiter will be used to protect the components in case a mistake was made in wiring up the circuit.
Next up: finishing the SS rectifier circuit, powering up the amp and working on completing the cabinet. The front and back control panels are still to come.
