  1. Will do. No time left after working & running the shop all day. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  2. Well, since it has Valvo EF86 pentode mod, I am going to have to give it a try. They sound incredible in our guitar amp builds. I don't plan on changing anything if it sounds half decent. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  3. Bruce, do you know who manufactured the board, part#, etc? Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  4. Bruce could you enlighten me on the updated driver board? I am assuming the two mesh plate preamp tubes have been converted to something other than what wa originally in it. Is it 7199? I know I have a lot of research to do on mods. But maybe you could tell me what the factory used in those 2 positions, and what their recommendations were for it? Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

  6. Probably should. Really want all electrons hitting the plates. At the speed of sound. Front & back. Narrowed down to the Belle's and CF4'S. I'll let the kg5.5 and JBL L200T rest comfortably numb. While I'm the same. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk

  8. Don't think l'll plug my headphones in it! Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  9. Anybody know what the miniature sockets are? Bias points? 1/8 input jacks? I know nothing about Dynaco stuff. Other than the tubes in this thing alone are probably worth what I gave for the whole amp. Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
  10. And so it seems my luck continues. Was looking through Craigslist at a vintage Kenwood receiver. Nothing special about it really. But in the 4 poorly taken photos in what looks to be like am old warehouse, I spot it. Sitting on top of a speaker. I text, and the guy can't even tell me the make or model. I know it's a Dynaco ST70, but what condition is it in. So off to Houston again with the $450.00, he says he will take, I go. Now the interesting part. I bring my tube tester, Fluke 77 and variac. But the seller is doing some remodeling on a vacant home. So I plugged in my tube tester, begin to pull on of the Mullard 6CA7's real carefully, by the base. Trying to wiggle it out of a rather tight socket, I manage to break the only USA manufactured tube in it. The 5AR4. So, I have a Sovtek to try it out with. Going to put a speaker load on it and bring it up slowly on the variac. But this unit has been recapped, and metal film resistors replaced, along with bias measuring test sockets? Really don't know much about Dynaco. But what a find on a Saturday night, late. And a great score today! Sent from my SM-N900V using Tapatalk
