    VTA70 Upgrade a Success!

    Post by McGar on Thu Jun 18, 2015 10:54 pm

    Wow! Thanks Bob and thanks Roy. The VTA70 upgrade in my old ST70 is just fantastic. As much as I loved the old ST70, this upgrade seems to give me more definition and less of the muddiness of the old sound. Next project is to install the pentode/triode switches.


    thanks for a great upgrade, guys!

    Good to hear. I love my VTA70 (the only original parts on mine are the output tranformers and the chassis/cage, everything else came from Bob.) I did all the upgrades at once. I put the switches in for pentode/triode, but I just prefer to leave mine in pentode mode.

    Did you upgrade the big can capacitor and replace the selenium rectifier?? If not, I'd go ahead and do that as well.

    thanks J4

    I had done the the selenium rectifier some years ago, but I was pleased to see the new vta board does seems to incorporate that fix as well.  As to the quad can, I had recently put a new one in, but my next upgrade will be to go to the larger capacity can.
