The discussion about this stage ends here,

same for both conditions .
Typical cases are voltages at gate of Q10, and junction R35/R51. It is
very easy to damage the BS170, even with a meter probe. Its not as tough as
the rugged 2N3819.
In any case, I am assuming that this stage is working satisfactorily.
Fault finding and discussing circuit operation can be two different things.
For example, with R53 simple Oms law says that a relatively big current has to flow through it's 10 ohms to make any significant
voltage drop across it. But it is not so simple to know what current actually should flow through it. A few months ago there was a
lengthy debate in this group about what this single resistor actually does.
Please take your extra measurements, just make it clear whether your questions are because you have a problem or just that you want
to learn more.
When I'm busy on other things I'm more inclined to spend time helping people with problems than discussing electronics although
there is a lot I need to learn.
