Monolithic Power Supply - Where There Is Smoke There Is Smoke

Chris and I have beeen working on this power supply off and on for a while. We are almost there and today we let her rip two 6D22S and two 866A tubes. It weighs almost 90lbs. Sadly the vintage ginormous power transformer started smoking and even stranger the 866A insulators were lightning up. If the video plays Look close for smoke and sparks. Fortunately we have a few transformers we can swap. We we were hitting 1kv and around  300ma+. Very fun we definatly went out for beers to celebrate!

I'm usually a fan of the earliest work of The Cure and don't follow much after Disintegration. Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me is a just a fantastic record. Here is the official video for Hot Hot Hot.
