KT-126 amp

Home Up KT-126 amp Comstat 35




The Lafayette KT-126 kit is a four tube class A output, two channel audio amplifier.  I was asked to fix this unit and could not find a schematic or practically any reference of this amplifier.  

It is a simple amp, two 12AX7s and two 50C5s.  I used an AA5 schematic to check the 50C5 operating parameters and to verify the high frequency oscillation suppression cap. There were numerous cold solder joints and wires with absolutely no solder flow.  Everyone has to learn to solder somewhere.

1n4007 50 ohm series resistor experimentally determined to provide 110v plate on the 50c5.

This Korean site is the only reference I could find on this little amp.  Click this link to see it.
