Blue LEDs should be banned under the Geneva Convention. It is the one thing that pisses me off about my Krell.
The acceptable colours for power amp power on LEDs are
Orange, yellow (but should be a sort of dirty yellow, not Big Bird yellow) or red.
Great amps, John, you got a massive bargain there, saved yourself thousands of pounds.
Current Lash Up:
Technics SL1200 with Sumiko h/s & Nagaoka MP50 * Firebottle valve MM phono stage * Parasound CDPi1000 * NVA P90SA passive pre / Krell KSA50S Power amp * JM Lab Electra 926 loudspeakers *

Thanks Martin, they genuinely are superb and seem to be getting better the more I use them.
Siting them close to the speakers has improved things even further. 1m speaker cables and 1.5m interconnects. Not the result you would expect with a Passive.
What are the speakers, John?
Guitar for sale in 'Abstract Chat' sub-forum
Rega Isis Valve. Platine Verdier. EAR 912. EAR 861. Tannoy Prestige Canterbury SE.
Lockwood Academy with Tannoy HPD 385. Originally sealed infinite baffle but I've been messing about with porting them, see here(need to update the thread actually with latest erm..engineering mods)
But ohhh my eyes...blue LED alert
Ahaa,just between me and you John,i'll whisper this the blue LEDs signify that the amps are "Tubehunter 1%ers"tm.
This means that all resistors are within 1% of each other..in other words Dunc sifted through shitloads of the bloody things and selected only those of the coverted "BLUE LED"award.
Also you'll be pleased to know there are only two pairs in existence,yours and Barrys..
Joking aside,i'm very pleased your liking the amps(i'm sure Dunc is too)and hope you get years of fun out of them.
Rega Isis cdp/Rasberry pi-iq audio dac,Duncan Williams TUNEHUNTER power supply, ASR Emitter 2 Exclusive or Dave Hewitt MR PLANK 4 watt SE and Tannoy Prestige Canterbury 15. HELL YEAH
Cheers Ian, in that case, blue LEDs it is
Mine are located behind their respective speakers, so I don't notice the Blue LEDs. However if you find them too bright, put a higher value resistor in series so they draw less current.
Glad to hear you are enjoying yours John.
Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?
Thanks Barry, I'll leave well enough alone for now. Bit of insulating tape over them will do the same! I deliberately got the cross braces on the speaker stands fitted at the top to leave room underneath for monoblocks, just incase I ever got some. Works well. So you're running with short speaker cables too?
