Please check your Kit content against the list to the right.
Take care to first review the steps outlined below, assemble the necessary tools, parts etc.
Many of the required connections can be made without using a soldering iron. However the connections for the RCA Jacks and from the MC Stepup Transformers as well as the LCR Modules require soldering. For the RCA Jack ring connections and the ground binding post we recommend a soldering iron of at least 50-60Watt power. All other solder connections should use a smaller soldering iron with 25Watt power or (better) be of the electronically regulated type.
When making connections to the IEC sockets and the mains transformers take great care to make solid connections and to isolate the bare connections using the included heat shrink sleeving. Please avoid pulling the wires exiting from the Transformer, as too much tension may cause internal shorts or disconnect the wire, rendering the transformer unusable.
The iron cover of the transformer shielding cage is set into place on the blue mastic provided. This provides a non-vibrating fit and makes removal easy.
