  1. Those DT amps make anything sound better...Hope I won't get a transformer problem for a second time like some other unfortunate users
  2. is it possible to change topology / class / pentode triode and save in the preset like with POD HD series ?? do you use speaker cabinets in the helix modeling? i'm still using the old dream rig : JTV + hd500 + DT50 .....With a torpedo cab in the fx loop of the POD, I can compensate using IRS + post eq to get an amazing sound in my amp. I know that IRS are supposed to be used with FRFR speakers, but with the help of post eq in Torpedo C.A.B, I can get rid of that extra boominess and obtain a very good polished but warm sound.

    Thank you for dreamrig DT, Helix & JTV

    hos does it work ? The same way as the HD500 deam rig ?? I didnt bought the Helix yet as I am a die hard lovr of the DT amps...how does it sound ?

    Shame on Fullcompass

    Hello, I hope that I am in the right place to post this thread as I live in Algeria I didn't find anywhere to buy a transformer for my DT50. A friend of mine who was on vacation in the U.S.A bought for me the transformer on fullcompass as it is the only website where I could find it available. Once he gave me the package, bad surprise. As you can seeon the pictures, the part seems used and damaged. Not only that, it has the same problem as my transformer inside my DT, it has a short cut in the primary section. Fullcompass does not ship out of USA, so even if I find a way to send them back the product, which will coast the price of the transformer, I dont have any way to get a new one as I live in Algeria. This story makes me hate my amp

    Shame on Fullcompass

    I used a voltage transformer/regulator on the main wall to have a 110v source. it seems to work fine. Full compass proposed to change the part for me , but since shipping will be expensive and since the part is working despite its physical condition I think I'm gonna keep it and use the amp with the voltage transformer on the main wall all the time. it works as a regulator at the same time and it has a fuse for further protection. Im I supposed to rebias the amp since it is working now under 110v conditions? I experienced a volume drop but it was a faulty preamp tube that I changed with the same model as mentioned on the forum. I would like to thank line6, forum members and line6 Service Engineer Moderators for kindness and quick answers.

    what if I use a voltage transformer /reducer that goes from 220 to 110 v before the amp

    Shame on Fullcompass

    will it blow the fuse if I put it on 230 v source ?I gave up the project for the time being
  8. I did a support ticket hope to be one of those fully satisfied clients as you sir...I'm so happy for you

    Shame on Fullcompass

    They are still in stock on my browser ...I read a lot of dissatisfied clients I understand why now !! it leaves me with a dead amp, 2 dead transformers, and money spent !

    yeah I already saw a video of Steve Howe talking about his dream rig and how it avoided him from tap dancing and luging different amps....I love the idea behind his killer rig... with that amp I didn't even felt the need to upgrade to a helix since I'm satisfied with the result of the interaction between pod and DT could you tell me whether this diagram is correct so I can communicate it to a tech Trafo Line 6 #11-30-0045-EN (1).pdf

    need to find a way to buy a power transformer...if line6 would accept to ship for me the part to Algeria it would be great ! of course a pro will take it in charge. ....I already changed the tubs with the same brand and the same specs ..same ..this is why I'm thinking of the power transformer

    it worked fine for a couple of months...when my friend changed the tubes yesterday he told me that he was able to deduce from the bolts that the amp was never opened before ...who knwos

    I think that the wall main isn't really the problem...since it is 220v like the country from which I bought the amp (France)

    As I understand doesn't need to be the same exact model? I thought it was a very special model made exclusively for this amp without any chance to find an equivalent ...keep in mind that I'm just collecting information and I understand that such procedure needs to be done by a professional. If it is the case I may let the chance to a pro to study the bad part in my amp in order to find an equivalent. I found some info on the different input / outputs it gives.. but nothing regarding the internal winding

    any chance to get the necessary techs to find an equivalent transformer? what are the important elements to take in consideration to find something equivalent ?? input / output ?

    not thinking of just replacing with another one...thinking to bring it to industry professionals in winding different electronic equipments....still need the techs (number of winding ..ect) I know ....I sound desperate

    mine is blowing the main fuse as soon as a power it........changed the tubes, same ...this should be the same problem....anyway to fix the power transformer instead of changing it ?? NO available parts here
  21. Hello, My DT50 is blowing the main fuse ( you can read details in my previous post..Would like to thank the community for their help) I would like to troubleshoot the power tubes. Is it safe to try to power my amp without power tubes? The idea behind this is the following: if the problem lies in tubes then the amp won't blow the fuse. Here is what I found on another forum : " You can remove all the tubes no problem. It can be very helpful in determining if a bad tube in an amp is causing a fuse to blow of something else. Remove the rectifier and power tubes. Turn on amp. Fuse blows then you have bigger issues. If it doesn't you put in the rectifier. Blows fuse? bad rectifier. No? put the power tubes in. Blows fuse? bad power tube...etc... Bob" Since there is no tube amp specialist around here, I would like to, try at least, troubleshoot the problem myself before taking it to an electronics engineer. Example, if the problem lies in power tubes I would buy them, take the amp to an electrics engineer , print the necessary documents on biasing the amp ( putting the DT on class ab/ 36 MV as a standard biasing value ..etc) , and ask him to directly change the tubes and bias the amp. Your comments are welcomed, thank you in advance.

    troubleshooting : powering DT50 without power tubes ?

    Didn't open the chassis of course...wouldn't do that without a qualified technician or electronics engineer with me.

    troubleshooting : powering DT50 without power tubes ?

    Changed the tubes with new ones. Like mentioned everywhere in this forum I used the same brand, the same reference : 12AX7EH Electro-Harmonix approved for the DT50 pre-amps. EL34EH Electro-Harmonix (matched pairs) for the power amps. Unfortunately, the same problem..... powered it up .... the main fuse blew .... I am very sad ...taking into consideration the fact that parts are not available in Algerie and the impossibility to send it to line6 for repair.....it was my dream amp for a couple of months... the possibility of repairing the repairing the inboard power transformer sounds impossible apparently
  24. Hello line6 community, the main fuse 2.5A 250v of my DT50 112 combo blew two hours ago. the amp was in stand by mode and it occurred when I turned it on to play. I tried a 2A 250v fuse two times, but they blew... is the difference between 2.5a and 2a that huge? Or shall I prepare my self for the worst? As I understand it from other posts when this fuse is blown away it signals that the transformer is going bad. can't wait for tomorrow to buy a 2.5 A and try .....hope it will fixe the problem. any experience ??
  25. hichembell

    DT50 Main fuse 2.5 a VS 2.0 A big difference ?

    Since it is impossible to send my amp to your services, is there any way to buy the part (if it is the transformer) online ?? and bring it to a professional here in Algeria?
