    My prediction is a "Re-Listing".

    The Ebay listing is for LOCAL PICKUP in the Seattle Area. Does not give the seller much of a Buyer base.

    It does list shipping charges to me on the site when I check out the listing. It does also list free pick up.

    Sorry about that!!! When I checked, it only had LOCAL Pickup.
    Maybe the seller was asked about shipping and he put it in.

    I believe it might have been this seller who previously listed it at more then $2,000 "buy it now."  

    Audio Advisor is selling them, too http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DYST70X

    I predict before anyone bids on this Dynaco the seller will lower the price.

    My guess is a relist at lower price.

    I watched that item end .. It sold for $1213 USD.

    I am wondering if the person selling the item was put up to sell the item by Radial Engineering the Canadian company that makes the amp? Maybe the wanted to find out the actual value of their amp on the open market ?

    The original post is at the link here > Radial Engineering's ST-70 sells for $1213 USD scroll down a little on this link ..

    Bob,
           This is a Will Vincent built ST-70 amp...not one of the Radial Engineering amps....Will Vincent re-purposes older ST-70 amps and sells these for lots of money. Typically most of these amps incorporated the original Dynaco circuit and/or 6GH8A modification. This one could be a VTA knockoff.....Kevin

    Kevin,

    If you click on the link from the first post, it does give you the Will Vincent amp as an alternate now because the Radial Engineering amp is not for sale anymore. When I click on this link below AND SCROLL DOWN once the page is up, I get the old listing showing that the amp is now sold. Click on the link below and scroll down. It should show the SOLD item for $1213.

    Correction....

    Post by DynakitParts on Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:56 pm

    Bob,
    My mistake.....Ebay replaced this original listing with the Will Vincent listing. Next time I should read the fine print.....Senior moment again!

    No > If you look through listing for "Completed items" for Dynaco Stereo 70, it does list this item as SOLD on July 30th. Scroll down to the items SOLD on July 30th at the link below and you will see that it was sold for $1213 USD.

    Dynaco Stereo 70 Series 3 SOLD on July 30, 2018

    Looks like someone used a sniping program to make a bid in the last few seconds.

    I am curious about WHO won the bid!
    Was the buyer connected to the seller?
    It has happened.

    Possible, but that seller has quite a bit of vintage electronics at auction. If I were to make a Scientific Wild Ass Guess (SWAG), I would guess that he is in the Pawn business and/or deals in vintage electronics as his day job, Pawn business based on his non-electronic items.

    I just found out that the same seller originally tried to sell this amp through Ebay Canada in early June for $2289 USD. The seller pulled the item before it ended. See link below from Ebay Canada.

    First attempt to sell this amp ended on June 11
