Unfortunately, this is not something we have in our database at this time. If you do end up finding the schematics, if you could send them to me I can put it into our database to help other users.

all I need to know the code of the power transformer, to see if you can adapt the input power from American 110V to italian 220V

ghibli, schematics are on the way and I've asked c-j if the power transformer can be rewired for 230VAC.

Now I have a request for you--could you shoot a couple good pics--well focused and at least, say, 3000 pixels wide--of the interior of the preamp, one from the front and one from the rear? If you can send me at least one, PM me and I'll send you my e-ddress.

Also FWIW, this one looks very easy to substantially improve the SQ, first by replacing the combo-4uF output coupling caps with something lots better. Next I'd replace the trios (one trio per channel) of 2uF/250V. PS-output caps feeding the B+ to the plate resistors.

Hey JeffreyBehr,
Would the upgrades you specified for the 16LS2 be applicable for a 16LS? What's the difference between the 2 models?
Do you have any other info about the upgrades you specified?

On a different topic, I have a Premier 14 that Music Technologies modded. They added small value TFT V-Caps in parallel with the existing PS caps and added Shottky Fast recovery diodes. It sounds a lot better, and actually very close to the 16LS, but still has some grain in the highs. Would upgrading the caps in the audio circuit be beneficial here as well?

Thanks,
Don
