    Completed building a Pam1 a couple of years ago and have NOS parts for 2 more yet to be built.
    A couple of highly modified MK3s will get a D/A converters with each amp assigned wheater it is a right or left channel and instead of an RCA input will get a Toshlink input.

    Follow-up to my last post-checking if there is a reply to a post only 1 minute after being posted. (I actually did that).

    It's a "gateway" thing ... build an amp, next thing you know, you'll be re-plumbing your house with copper, using the "hard stuff" ... can I get that with extra lead?



    Head rush!!    cyclops 

    I just rebuilt the master bath here, and the hardware store people looked at me funny when I started buying copper. Apparently, that's a bit of a lost art ...

    You bought a used ST70 in great condition for an even greater price, then realized someone else got all the fun of building your Dynaco so you make the plans to purchase all the necessary reproduction parts to cull together a "kit" to assemble (not knowing anything about Dynakit parts, or guys like Bob or Dave...) so you won't feel left out.

    And Bob,

    For justification; because the original owner drilled a hole in the cover to make it easier to adjust the bias without removing the cover and this is condidered sacrilegious‎ within the tube community.  Very Happy
