Do you have experience of wax leaking from the power transformers
----------------------------------

ckw

Not uncommon to see it if something wrong inside.
Were both power trnasformers hot? If too hot, the wax would melt though :-(

First is to see if the power transformer is too hot after running for a while. It's either some component is drawing too much current or part of winding is short. Best is to check the secondary voltages after running for sometime.
Also the mira.net web site (http://home.mira.net/~kiewavly/Leak.html) also provides some winding resistance & voltage information for a quick check.

[#5953] "Leaking" problem    
Dear all,

I have both 2 units of TL10 experiencing "leaking" of wax after 8 hours use. My question is, any buddies used the amps for such a long time?
The transformers run hot as usual, but not too hot as my hands can touch them. The sound seems normal and no hum heard from the transfomrers.

Someone told me that the old way of making power transfomers were to use wax to cool it and as damping purpose. What if the wax all goes out then?

What voltage tapping are you guys using? My current setting is 215v to 235v.

John, i dont know how to post pictures, any email account i can send you the pictures?

Regards
Ringo

I have several Leak Tube amplifiers and none of them have this kind of problem after 4-5 hours listening. You can send photos to johnkeung@hgcbroadband.com

BTW, I did not audition any Leak TL/10 before. As a Leak fan, it is a regret : )

What speaker are you using? Curious to know : )

Ringo,

Wax should not be the 'coolent' but the insulator of moist air, etc., and the stabliser for electronic components, e.g. air coils soldered onto a PCB.

Check if the was came from the other components instead of from any of the transformers?

If the PSTs on your TL/10 can be touched by your bare hands for at least 8 to 10 seconds, it is NOT too hot for such after 8 hours' use.

Don't worry.

Ringo - I could think of another possibility.. perhaps the PSTs on your TL10 had once been re-wound and wax been applied by the sifu. Normally, its should be 'transformer oil' (looks like lacqure) or black tar (e.g. in TL12.1).

"Good match with 12.1 or not????"


Yes, these were the factory matched preamp for LEAK TL/12.1! But by now, most, if not all, of them should require rebuilding and replacement caps of the TCCs!

In fact, one came with my TL/12.1 and the other came with NEC's TL/12.1, both from the UK! Difficult to find a mate and either me or NEC should sell my/his own unit to the other! :)

I believe these are the matching mono pre-amp for TL10.1 instead of TL12.1.

Tim,

But indeed they came with my and NEC's TL/12.1. They are rather robust like a tank. :)

I think TL10 was designed and launched after these early version Varioslope II mono preamp was designed and launched.

Of course there was an even earlier mono preamp, the Varioslope I, which I have one and which can be fitted to TL/12.1 at one side and the cage can cover both at the same time.

Am I right?

My home, after the most of my collection have been moved out.. I discovered a very good but cheap speaker stand!

These pair of 'stands' are in fact a pair of pine wood shelves. Standing as shown, each has about 22" in height and sounds great! $99 each at 宜家!

But good sound does not come naturally. You need to put three spikes between the floor and the pine wood shelf.

The 2 spikes at the front should support directly the screw heads and the third spike in the middle of the rear.

No harm to try these shelves in the interim, particularly if you don't have the expensive Foundation Designer II stands.

Also, the shelves should be positioned as shown, i.e. the big hole facing you; otherwise, the bass will be blurred.

My Leak ST-20 is playing, JR149 on a pair of pine wood Ikea 'stands'.. driven by a DIY Jadis JP200 preamp clone.

Sound is good. :)
