    As I'm not getting much input on my other post (found here: http://dynacotubeaudio.forumotion.com/t3257-triode-electronics-st-70-driver-board-wiring-instructions-question) and am anxious to get my ST-70 up and running, I thought I would reach out to ask to see pics of your ST-70's underside for those of you with a Triode Electronics driver board.  Show me what you got!

    If you mount a VTA board i'm shure you will get help here. Same
    goes i think if you get an original/replica from dynapartkits.
    Triode boards ... Ask triode folks, i do not know anything about them.

    I can't remember another triode board user here... I'm sure it must be that no one has experience with it, cause members of this forum are invariable eager to help out.

    Yeah that's kind of what I figured. If budget allowed I would gladly make the switch to the VTA board. I'm convinced it's just a simple question of not having a connection right. Unfortunately, Triode is MIA as usual. Last time it took three months for me to get a reply from them Shocked

    Holy carp! That's pretty fishy.

    Sounds like they're not really in business anymore.

    Over on The Gear Page (in the tech section) there's often an inquiry/complaint thread about Triode. I've got a sneaking suspicion Triode is really just one guy who can't keep up. Just my opinion.

    Over the past few years customer support from Triode Electronics has been slow to nonexistent. Many customers get no customer support and/or very slow shipments .. This is not a new thing either .. This is an ongoing thing with them for the past 3 or 4 years ... Read the Google search link below on some of the customer complaints about poor service.

    Triode Electronics no response

    Even their Facebook page has complaints posted by customers ..

    Facebook page > Triode Electronics

    Moral of the story > If you want good Dynaco parts and good service shop at either ..

    Tubes4hifi

    or

    Dynakitparts

    Yes unfortunately I didn't do my due diligence prior to purchasing nearly a year ago. I've since grown wiser. Someone must know something about their board!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've reposted over in the diytube forum, so let's see what they come back with.

    It appears Triode's site is still up with directions, have you checked there? Not sure of what version you have.

    I would probably bite the bullet and get a VTA board, something you know you have support for. Unless you are darn close to being finished.

    Yes I've checked Triode's site and found a couple other third party sites that have some pictures of their board that confirm what I believe is the correct wiring.  

    Unfortunately, it's all buttoned up, with the wires connected and new tubes installed, so I'm loathe to switch everything out at this point (and my budget is non-existent).  Hoping someone comes through who has experience with these boards otherwise I'm sure I will wind up going the VTA route whenever budget allows.  Thanks again all!
