Hi Gang,

I'm just a neophyte with amplifiers but I'm learning, please excuse my
ignorance.  I'm installing a step start kit in my L-4B amplifier.  It has
two 48V DC relays in parallel with 10 ohm 10 watt resistors.  I don't want
to _borrow_ relay coil power from the place that the step start kit
manufacturer suggests.  The instructions suggest I tap into the voltage
used for tube cut off.  I want to get the voltage to trip the relays from
the AC power input.  I need to make a circuit that will delay the relay for
1/2 a second.  I realize that the power supply is designed to handle the
inrush without the step start but I want to save wear and tear on my
irreplaceable on/off switch.  What are your suggestions or ideas?  Thanks
in advance and 73,
