Re: Hum in Silvertone 1482
Hmmm, a lot of good stuff to chew on there. I didn't get all of it until I checked the 1472 schematic at Schematic Heaven, which has all the components numbered, unlike the 1482!  
 
BTW, I haven't looked inside yet, but the 1482 schemo does not show the grid stoppers on the 6V6s at all!  
 
Any suggestions for filter cap values if I put them in the chassis?  
 
Thanks,  
Ben

Another thought/Q:  
 
Would lowering any of the dropping resistors to give more headroom, e.g. to the phase splitter, sort of a la this mod (http://people.cornell.edu/pages/mt24/Amp/mm/PRtweak.html) be beneficial, or would it stress the power supply?
