    Attilion,
    What's "broken" about the power supply ? Transformers can go bad but that's rare, particularly in a preamp. I have schematics for the DR-6. PM me and let us discuss your problem.

    The transformer VA rating should not be an issue. The preamp will draw only what current it needs. The original transformer would probably be around 100VA-150VA / 20V-0V-20V. Have you checked the two 10,000uF electrolytic caps to make sure that one of them is not shorted ? It should not be that hard to pinpoint the problem; you have only three components in the power supply, the transformer, diode bridge, and caps.
