I realize I am reviving an old thread. I am seeking advice on a problem I am having with the MWTP. I am getting no sound out of my analog output (both XLR and RCA). Digital output is working fine. The two output tubes are lighting up, but the rectifier isn't. I tried two different rectifiers (stock modwright and EML mesh) and they both don't light up, so I think its a problem with the MWTP and not the tubes. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Mine does the same thing every so often, but when I wiggle the rectified a little, it lights back up...  dirty pins in my case, yours may be a little more than that...  I would remove the cover and visually check for any loose wires.  If nothing looks out of place I would test some connections by very gently pulling on some wires (starting at the Rect tube socket) and tracing the path as far as I could...  Or just call Dan and see about sending it in for repair. 

Also, try a third rectifier if you have one, it's unlikely but not impossible that the two you tried are bad.

Good luck

@ funkmonkey, thanks so much for the advice. I am happy and much relieved to say that I replaced the fuse (3.15amp, 5x20mm, slow from radio shack) today and now getting sound from the analog outs. This thread was helpful in directing me to the possibility of a blown fuse.

I took delivery of this unit yesterday and I am hearing the analog MWTP for first time and it is very impressive.

Sorry for posting this as a reply -- but as a newly joined member - I can't post a new message & I'm hoping I can get some direction with a problem I'm having with tube rolling on the transporter.

I bought a set of Black Treasure 6SN7 tubes and a pair of 8(f) to 9(m) pin socket adapters (tried to find the Bolder adapters - but it seems they are NLA) --

Installing them in the transporter -- I get no sound & the tubes don't heat up -- took the tubes and had them tested -- Tubes are fine -- but it seems the adapters have a short (according to the tube tester when testing them as 6CG7 tubes ( tube and adapter together ) 

Does anyone know where I can source a proper pair of adapters from a reliable source (new or used) -- for use with a 6SN7 tube - in a 6CG7 socket.  Ebay shows several sources -- but that's where I got the last set -- which don't work.  Any help or direction would be appreciated

thanks

Hi Bart, did you manage to source the correct adapters?

Is anyone still there? I'm a newbie here and I have a Transporter/Modwright. I wouldn't mind some tube advice.

If anyone is there...

hello...?
