60% Switch

Postby jnoel64 » Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:03 pm

I posted this question before the forum changed. I have looked through all the posts and can't find it.
My old X100B has a 60% switch on the back. What exactly does it do? My failing memory thinks it has to do with the plate voltage on the power tubes, but I can't recall exactly. Honestly, I've never noticed that much of a difference between the 2 settings, but am curious if it does relate to the voltage.

That link above may be your best bet. I've only got the X60B, which is already 60% of the X100B. :lol:

And I almost pulled the trigger on one of those, but I was too slow! That one had a 60% switch on the back, too.
