I've just completed a Bob Latino VTA ST-70 kit. I still have a couple weeks before I've collected the tubes and speakers so I'll share more of my experience once I've had a chance to hear the set up. In the meantime, this is one of my first posts to this forum. I really like the look of the original ST-70 but I am looking for options to cover the driver board (in my opinion, the driver board is the most "kit" looking part of the amplifier, everything else is gorgeous).
So, I've found a handful of pics (3 in fact) of examples of a driver board cage. The first two are my favorite and have been provided by Bob showing the original factory-assembled ST-70 that supposedly included a driver board cage during some years. Of course, with the updated VTA board with 3 driver boards this option won't work. Does anybody know where I could get a stainless steel version for a VTA driver board?
The third pic is another example of a home-designed option. I don't really like it since it completely covers the tubes and I don't think the metal mesh is really consistent with the vintage style of the ST-70.
