We do not recommend that you use these without a standby switch. It puts too much strain on your amp and could cause permanent damage.

Is this still a concern if you simply give your amp time to warm up before turning up the volume or inputting a signal?

Yes if you do not have a standby switch, we can not recommend this for your amp.

Using a solid state rectifier will definitely tighten up rectifier sag. However, when using a solid state rectifier in place of a rectifier tube it is critical that you always use your amp's standby switch.

The T-SSR01 is designed to be compatible with an amp that uses a 5AR4/GZ34 for rectification.

Yes, you will still need to bias your amp when switching to a solid state rectifier.

This is designed to be a drop in replacement for 5AR4, 5U4, 5Y3 and should not affect the circuit in a negative way. We can not speak to situations outside of it's intended use. Please see the disclaimer above about using a standby switch and cathode stripping before using this item.

This solid state rectifier is designed to replace the listed rectifier tubes to provide a stiffer power supply with less sag. Uses beyond it's intended purpose can not be verified.

The 5V4GT is not listed as a tube that can be replaced with the SSR01 and therefore we couldn't say for certain that it will work.

The solid state rectifier will raise the voltage slightly but not to levels of any great concern.

This should work with the 5W4.

These are the same thing but made by two different manufacturers.

The pinout is the same and should work.

This will most likely not prevent background hiss in your amp.

If there isn't a standby switch already installed in your amp, we can not provide assistance in modifications to an amplifier as we do not provide technical support.
