    Sorry, yes, Bob Latino at tubes4hifi. He doesn’t have a 35. The 70 is in your general price range and you get twice the power...unless you run it in triode mode then you’ll get 17 watts or so.

    thanks for the ideas.....it's a long and complicated road.....I bought a mini watt appj 2013 for just what you suggest, a stop gap. I'm loosing faith in my ability to find an OTP for the 299B, so I ordered a Decware Rachel but that will take 3-4 months. I kinda just want something nice now to do for the next 4 months and then maybe pass it on. Thought a kit would be fun and educational....I'm retired so I have the time. I'm kinda shy about vintage since my 299B looks kinda hopeless. Anyway, thought a kit would be fun but wow they are expensive to, but if I could build it, listen to it for 4-5 months and just get my $$$ back, that sounds fun. Thats how I came to the idea of a St-35.....it's in the ballpark of the watts I need and not out of my price range. ramble......

    One other thought.
    If the you opt for an ST 35,
    I'd suggest you look at thread by NJCanuck.
    It's basically a from scratch build using Dave Gillespie's PS and amp boards , new chassis and transformers.
    If you reach out to Rich (very nice guy) I'd bet he'd help with parts list, sourcing.
    Not turn key kit , but about as good a ST 35 as you'll come up with (no bad thing!) In your price range. It won't necessarily be a stop gap. If all you need are 17wpc, this could be an end game amp for you.

    thanks for the suggestion, I just read that thread and that looks like a great option with a little more challenge.
