Wow, really? Snide? I was agreeing with your reasoned understanding :)

The help and comments posted here on the TAN site are read by all levels of amp building enthusiasts. Many are just looking to build an amp for what might be a lower cost than they could spend for a boutique-style amp as great as the Two Stroke. We have helped so many first time builders that have no background or even interest in how tube amps work. It’s important to consider this when posting on the site. Saying that 8.1 volts is the correct voltage for a C10R, or any 25w speaker is only part of the equation and taken at face value, could lead a beginner into trouble. I’m glad you had success with your speaker break-in. Continued good luck with your amp building.
