I am only going to use my 4ohm. Is there a print out/schematic/instructions for changing it?
I haven't looked around the site yet, I'm sure it's around somewhere.
I just bought the completed ST-70 kit from the guy in Puerto Rico off agon. Bob you may remember that one as it doesn't sound like he's even had it very long.
I literally have had a "stock" ST-70 for less than a week, also bought off agon. I'd bought the stock one specifically with the intention of doing all the upgrades over time, but my obsession kicked in and I ended up getting what I think was a pretty good deal on this one already upgraded. When the cost of it was less than if I'd bought all the parts and done it myself it was kind of a no-brainer. Also, I'm not exactly a maestro w/a soldering iron and a schematic.
This has been my first foray into tube audio. I'm even selling off some of my other hobby-stuff now to go a little further. I have really been enjoying the stock ST-70. Even with the Chinese EL84's I think it's pretty nice. Looking forward to hearing the difference between this and the mod/kit one!
So now I'm trying to learn all the ins/outs of your kit, Bob.
And I'll need to switch it to 4ohm before I can use it. Hoping I can get one of the engineers here @ work to do it for me before I even bring it home.
I am also going to look up what the preferred tubes are so I can get them onto various Christmas lists. I understand the Gold Lion KT88's are generally well regarded? Also interested in options for the other tubes. Again I'm sure the info is already around here...
