    I was just wondering when the first st-120 tube amp was made vs the first st-120 solid state amp???
    Did Dynaco make a ST-120 tube amp??

    Thank You

    The old original Dynaco company did not make a dual channel 60 WPC TUBE amp. After the Dynaco trade name was sold to Panor in the 1990's, Panor came out with an ST-160 dual channel amp called the Stereo 160 which was a 75 watt per channel amp. The original Dynaco company did have a Stereo 120 dual channel SOLID STATE amp which came out in about 1966.

    The VTA ST-120 is a dual channel 60 WPC TUBE amp that came out in June of 2008.

    Hi Bob thank you. By the way who made that 2008 model? Dynaco was long gone.

    I designed the 2008 VTA ST-120 60 WPC TUBE amp (kit or wired). The driver circuit part of the ST-120 was designed by Roy Mottram .. The rest of the amp consists of parts chosen by me.
