    If the price were a bit more ... well ... a LOT more reasonable, I'd be tempted to do a rebuild and run them head to head ...

    Think I'll head over there and make an offer for $500. I mean, what's the worse he could do ... track me down and kill me in my sle ...EEP!

    Tweren't me ...

    In the small print ...

    This listing was ended by the seller because there was an error in the listing.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see it come back with the extra tubes off the table ... maybe because he knocked the tubes off the table taking some pics ... tongue

    I'm sure somebody offered him a decent price "off eBay" and he saved the 13% hit.

    Here is a site that has manuals for the Dynaco 160. I guess produced in 1991 or later.

    Hmmm... Anyone know what this amp sounds like?  Has a fancy power supply with regulated B+ for the heaters and also the B+ for the driver tubes.  The LED Bias adjustment scheme looks like the target voltage is 0.1V across 2 ohm cathode resistors for 50mA current.   The Bias adjustment comparator range for power tube current is 43 mA to 57mA.  Interesting amp.

    Kinda wonder why they went with the Dynaco name. The amp is at the other end of the spectrum from the original Dynaco. Instead of simple and cheap it is complex and should have been expensive. Probably why they are gone.

    I never considered the Panor product a true Dynaco because they did not observe the "distill it to its basics" design philosophy that made Dynaco under David Hafler a success.  

    The only thing "Dynaco" about the Panors was the brand name (which is all they really paid for, anyway).  Otherwise, the features and doodads were piled on where the marketers would appreciate them, not the engineers or the kind of buyers who bought Dynaco instead of Sansui.

    Panor is still around.  Their main product line is now LED lighting.  If there is a "next one" it will probably be whatever the next fad might be.
