    Newly finished VTA ST70

    Here is my newly finished VTA ST70 together with SEAS A26 loudspeaker (a Dynaco A25 clone).

    The design is from SEAS SEAS A26. There are a couple places selling the full kit such as madisound A26 Kit.

    For me, it is way too expensive to ship the cabinet to Hong Kong, so I have a builder built the cabinet for me locally and sourced the drivers from Europe. The cross over parts include only a capacitor and a resistor that can easily be found anywhere.

    Very cool. Your cabinet looks very good compared to the kit anyway!

    Even though my primary speakers are Klipsch Cornwalls, those A26 speaker kits look just fantastic. Might need to order a pair.

    How much power do you suppose is the minimum to drive them? I ask because my primary amp is an SCA-35 (17.4 watts per channel).


    Thanks.

    That's hard to say as I have not tried a low power amp with the A26. When driving it with Bob's VTA ST70, I only need to turn the volume to around 50% and that's pretty loud already.
