Re: Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

Well, I put it on the bench and had a spare speaker hooked up. With the 1/8" stereo plug to RCA's plugged into the Phono stage, I did the finger noise test, switching the speaker positive back and forth. Both sides worked. So I cleaned the pots and switches, put it back together and hooked the regul...

Re: 555 timer missing pin

I would say https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/tools/ ... e-circuit/ would be pretty much the same circuit, save different values.

Re: Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

That is all that they have on the amp. I know there's a 10-A and a 10-B, not sure if there are any others. I'll look when I get back home.

Re: Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

The good thing is that I have 1 good working channel and it's so minimal that it'll be easy to check back and forth with a multimeter. I just need the elusive thing called time.

If you have a chance to look at that video I linked, you'll see how minimal it is.

Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

Well, here's another one I'm asking for help with. I've had this little amp for God knows how long now. I only use it on rare occasions in the bedroom, with tonight being one of those times. The left channel is dead. Absolutely 0 anything from it. I've pulled it and a cursory look reveals nothing am...

Wow, cooked a metal film. Must have been a hell of a surge to do that.

Re: laser level offset measurement

Don't know what sensors would be best, but I can say that laser levels are at their best, simple machines designed to do a singular task - project a laser dot in a level plane. Using that, you could produce an array of low cost sensors (would red LEDs work as sensors?) arranged above and below a "0"...

Re: Realistic specs

She's all done and put back together, minus the new belts, but it's been pretty steady. It's still a cheap unit, but it all works, plus 1.

Screen grid resistors, must've been some old carbon comp cookers!

Re: Realistic specs

I should have pulled the power board for the turntable, but it sounded fine when I put a record on that I am quite familiar with. I think I'll leave it alone for now. I doubt she'll have many records before she upgrades. Of course, I could always look at Crosley if I really needed to. Nah, I don't t...

Re: Realistic specs

Ok, I finally had a chance to get into this one again. Got my Aux cable done, verified left/right -swapped wires on the board, figures I'd get them backwards. Took some more pics and re-cleaned the volume pots. I checked the one cap in question, it is flat on top, it's just the way the covering come...
