The shunting LDR resistance between T4B-pins 5/6 is missing in your measurement and will bring your voltages down.

may i bump this again? im very confused. everybody told me that pin5 should be connected to ground. which is not the case on my units. what am i doing wrong? any help is appreciated. all this is measured without the t4b in the socket.

These 'everybodies' relate to the LA3A. You are building a SA3A that has pin6 of the T4B connected to ground instead. The LDR inside the T4B that connects between pins 5/6 doesn't care.

so put it in circuit and your measurement will behave ...

great! thanks a lot.
btw: i checked my (unfinished) silent arts la2a and it was the same. no ground connection on pin5. i assume its a similar issue (not an issue at all). cheers
