The unit is powered directly from the 120 volt AC line, with no power transformers. Filaments are wired in series, with the total adding up to 117 volts (35 + 35 + 35 + 12). The 35W4 forms a half-wave rectifier, which is filtered by a three-stage RC network. The B+ for the output stage plates and screens are taken from the second capacitor, and the B+ for the preamp and phase inverter from the third capacitor in the filter.

The input signal to the amplifier is applied directly to the volume control pot, from whence it passes through a variable high-pass filter (the "Treble" control). When the wiper is set to minimum, response is approximately flat (though actual fr
