    My ST-70 Variant has a blank brushed aluminum faceplate, so that all connections are on the back panel. That makes it different from most other ST70-based iterations. The two OPTs are the only Dynaco parts. Has the Dynamull PCB which allows biasing the EL-34 tubes separately (rather than in pairs as the original design), and a beefier PS Xformer with larger caps, which is not so unique, but with all other parts brand new at the time of the build a year or so ago, and the non-Dynaco chassis, in combination with said arrangement of connections, you could look a long time to find another like it. Rustnrot did his usual neat job so it looks very nice, too. I always hate seeing the interconnects plugged into the front of many tube amps, so that (and the price) was a huge selling point for me. It has been pictured in more than one thread, so I'll do a search and post a link to one. Rustnrot claimed 45wpc, but as he didn't specify distortion I tend to stick with the 35wpc figure, not that the difference is significant, especially when hooked with Khorns.

    Made for model year 1990 only, I had hunted these since. I followed this actual pair through Europe for many years until I found them again in Canada at a dealer where I purchased them. Much wrong had been done to one of them, it is still being rectified. The other is now fine. Beyond rare. IMG_0855.JPG

    Picked up a Panasonic 3100B integrated amp... this picture can be found on Google... it's the actual unit I purchased, and own. Picture was from eBay, i was the lucky sap to get it. Was listed as parts, did not play.... the unit is in 10/10 in cond it looks new.

    Got the unit in, just to realize the jumpers in the back were in the Tape inputs and not the pre in/out jacks. Moved them and bingo, one of the best sounding amps I own.

    I can only find one other site on the unit. Finding info on the amp seems to be next to impossible... I'd love to find the user manual & service manuals.

    I would really love to find someone else who has one... I would purchase another in a heart beat.

    Great thread

    Nice,

    Love the 90s rare stuff... my Amp/speakers in my main set up were only produced from 91-92.

    Awesome amps man!

    I know this is the only one, because I made it myself, with my own two little hands.

    Seems like Canada does accumulate some rarities, especially in your case!

    Posted these in another thread already, but since I started this thread a number of years ago
    these might be somthing no other AKer has, then again maybe not?

    Love this thread.

    I have this Sansui drawer. The outer shell is metal but the actual drawer is wood. Looks like an amp, but I guess that at the time it was manufactured it was meant to hold record cleaning "stuff". I totally forgot I had this until I ran into this thread.

    Another: This Kenwood remote control thingy that is supposed to turn an otherwise remoteless amp or preamp into an, I guess, a remote controlled device.
    I never hooked t up though so it is anyone's guess if this trick works. This thing is cute and even has a spring loaded hole to stick the remote in.

    Well...yes.

    That's a "remote remote control". I guess that's a place for the remote control in between uses.

    The only issue I have with this thread is it reminds me how quickly time passes.

    Its over ten years since I started this thread. That reminds me, I've forgotten already.

    Never knew something like that existed.I'll bet that is highly coveted by a Sansui rack aficionado.

    I have a Harman Kardon model 330 receiver. I can't seem to find any info on that particular model.
    There is plenty on H/K 330a, 330b and 330c - but not the 330 without the a,b or c designation.

    Try looking at hifiengine.com all you have to do is register and it's free. If they don't have the owner and service manual , it night be hard to find.

    I'm sure more must exist, I just haven't seen anyone else actually mention having one.

    Jensen Model BL-151 speaker cabinet. Picked up this gem about 16 years ago for the Stephens 206ax inside. The cabinet seemed to have a home built look to it, and all along I assumed it was.

    However when I was looking for some information in the old (online) Radio Shack catalogs I spotted it on page 171 of the 1953 issue. (also appears on page 175 in the 1954 issue)

    So.... not a home built after all....
