Re: Different voltages from the one tapped transformer
Okeydoke, Pete. Not arguing, just wondering. Thought it'd make your life simpler if you only needed a single voltage PT. With your PT's current rating, shouldn't be a problem using it as you suggest.  
I want to put 400V on some preamp 6SL7s myself, but I'm actually going to drop it down to about 360V at standard line voltage so I don't overvoltage the 400V filter cap at a 125V line voltage. My arrangement's a standard one with higher voltage on the output stage, though.
