Can the VTA board be mounted the other way around to allow the bias adjustment posts to be toward the front of the amp? I keep my amps in a rack, and reaching over hot tubes to reach the 'blind spot' pots would not be my first choice.
Just a minor suggestion.
Suggestion noted - but there are other things involved ..
Having the board situated this way ...
1. The input leads on the driver board are right next to the chassis and you can run them along the side of the chassis away from the AC line which runs up the center of the amp.
2. The B+ line and the bias line are on the side of the board near the center of the chassis. The quad cap is on the side of the board with the B+ lead this way.
3. The two driver tubes are to the side of the chassis where they can dissipate heat better.
