Finally got to drop in the nos Sylvania 6CA7 power tubes I picked up for the Traynor (YBA-1) last week. These tubes are massive, they make the old EL34’s I had in there look like toys. They sound incredibly full yet deliver wicked glassy cleans. I snuck in a nos JAN GE 5751 in a preamp slot as well. I’m in love with my Traynor again! Can’t wait to start playing it out of six 12" speakers.

1968 Traynor YBA-1 in for a tuneup
  • Replaced 2-prong cord (with 3 prong plug electrical taped onto it!)
  • Unwired ground switch (left intact)
  • Soldered ground to chassis (these chassis are so heavy my 40W iron wouldn’t cut it so I had to resort to the propane torch!)
  • Replace 4M (!!) volume pots with 1M
  • Replace treble bleed cap with 100pF (from 1nF)
  • Full cap job going with F&T dual 50uf 500V Cans except 10@100V for the bias (up from 8@250V - what was up with that anyway??? Most times these were grossly under spec for voltage.)
  • Added a 220K bleeder resistor
  • Replaced 39k resistor with 10K in series with a 100K pot for variable fixed bias
  • Polished and retentioned input and speaker jacks
  • Cleaned pots and tube socket pins

Nice big American made Sylvania 6CA7s!

Clean and lots of room for the new caps to go in

And here’s the finished cap job

Nuggets cortan a Raptors seguidilla de 11 victorias

DENVER (AP) — Con 27 puntos y 14 rebotes de Nikola Jokic, los Nuggets de Denver pusieron fin a una racha de 11 victorias seguidas de los Raptors de Toronto, al arrollarlos el lunes por 112-93.

El serbio Jokic logró sus mejores cifras en lo que representa su primera temporada en la NBA. El 28 de noviembre, sumó 23 unidades y 12 rebotes ante San Antonio.

Ostenta cuatro “dobles dobles” en sus últimos cinco partidos. Jokic, de 20 años, ha rebasado sus propias expectativas en esta temporada.

“Cuando llegué aquí, no pensé que jugaría”, reconoció. “Ahora tengo la confianza del entrenador”.

Will Barton anotó 20 puntos y Randy Foye agregó 16 por Denver, que barrió a los Raptors en su serie de duelos en esta campaña. Los Nuggets se impusieron el 3 de diciembre en Toronto para cortar una racha de ocho derrotas en fila.

Los Raptors llegaron al compromiso montados en la mejor racha vigente en la NBA, pero no pudieron continuar con el éxito que disfrutaron en enero. Tuvieron la ventaja por un punto a la mitad del segundo cuarto pero estuvieron abajo por dos dígitos durante buena parte de la segunda mitad.

“Descríbanlo como quieran”, dijo el entrenador de Toronto, Dwane Casy. “Hoy apestamos. Tuvimos una de nuestras peores actuaciones del año. Jugamos como si la cancha fuera un lodazal. Podemos atribuir esto a la altitud (de Denver) o a cualquier otra cosa. Apestamos”.

DeMar DeRozan encabezó a Toronto con 24 puntos. Kyle Lowry sumó apenas nueve y convirtió sólo uno de seis tiros libres.

También por los Raptors, el argentino Luis Scola anotó cinco unidades y capturó un par de rebotes. El brasileño Lucas Nogueira totalizó cuatro unidades y un balón atrapado ante las tablas.

Sonam Kapoor's Coldplay video sparks Twitter debate

Los Angeles, Jan 30 (IANS) British rock band Coldplay’s new single “Hymn for the weekend” video which also features singer Beyonce Knowles and Indian actress Sonam Kapoor, has sparked a debate on its Indian inspiration.


The video, which released on Friday, became a topic of debate among the Twitterati, with some calling it a “stereotypical” portrayal of the country.

While some slammed the video for cultural appropriation, others defended the Mumbai-shot video calling it as an appreciation of the foreign culture, reports billboard.com.

Detractors took aim at both Coldplay band – comprising Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion, and Beyoncé on Twitter.

While Beyonce’s appearance dressed up as a Bollywood star faced a backlash, some pointed out that this isn’t the first time Coldplay has ‘used or misused’ Asian culture in its videos.

“Hymn for the weekend” is the latest single from the band’s new album “A Head Full of Dreams”. The video of the much hyped song seems to be a leaf out of a book on India, with Beyonce as a glamorous Bollywood diva and Sonam walking among ruins in an ethnic attire.

It also gives a sneak-peak into Indian classical dance forms, and features Coldplay’s frontman Martin enjoying touristy things – from exploring India with a ride in a 'black and yellow’ taxi, and even in a boat on a ghat, to celebrating the festival of colours in Mumbai.

The debate saw posts from various Twitter followers.

A user wrote: “Just because it’s Beyoncé, doesn’t mean she’s right. She is being offensive and appropriating our culture”, another user posted: “Cultural appropriation is about power structures just as with racism. How is Beyoncé, a black woman, offensively appropriating? ”

The video captures the essence of Mumbai, which is also known as the city of dreams, with visuals from its streets. The clip has been directed by Ben Mor. The Bollywood actress and international pop icon Beyonce are sporting creations by Indian designers.

Beyonce has also put henna on her hands and sports an ethnic outfit and jewellery.

“No thanks for the bundle of stereotypes @coldplay. No wonder then that India will be known as the country of snake charmers & sadhus,” a Twitter user posted.

Calling it another “Slumdog Millionaire” one user tweeted, “Coldplay’s new video "Hymn For The Weekend” looks like 'Slumdog Millionaire’ had a holi sequence.“

Another user said: ”@coldplay don’t exoticize us. You’ve been to the clubs and everything. Why do you want to make it seem like all we do is dance in the streets.“

However, there were praises as well. One user said: "Beyoncé showed India in many ways and made it look beautiful and lovely. She portrayed India excellently. As an Indian, I loved it”, another posted: “All this 'cultural appropriation’ talk. If anything, the video showcases the beauty of India. No need for all the drama,” one user tweeted in support.
