How do I know if I can build an electronic kit myself?
Thousands of our customers have successfully build our do-it-yourself rebuild kit projects with no problems at all. All our kit projects have thoroughly de-bugged instructions. There are no mistakes, addendums, or blind corners. All kits have easy to follow complete step by step instructions, along with all support data (wiring pictorial diagrams - most color coded, schematic diagrams, board layouts, and troubleshooting advice).
You need not know electronics or circuit design, just how to carefully follow directions and be willing to do tidy assembly and solder work (we even supply the solder).
You can purchase just the kit plans first. The cost of the plans will then apply to the cost of the kit itself as long as the plans are current - so you have nothing to loose. Study the plans to determine yourself if you are confident to try the project. Call or e-mail us with your questions regarding the plans. We are here to help you.
We offer a free checkout of your completed kit project and will guarantee it will work well as long as you followed the instructions. All you pay is round trip shipping. We want to see the unit for its free checkout before you ever plug it in. We run the equipment up slowly on a variable AC power supply, testing that all circuit parameters are correct. We catch problems before they can cause component damage. This insures that mistakes don't necessitate expensive repairs. Minor assembly problems will be fixed free of charge. Major calamities can be fixed too, at the worst case the maximum cost would be the difference between the kit and factory wired price (assuming the unit had never been plugged in).
AVA do it yourself rebuild kits are available for your Dyna ST-70 power amplifier and Dyna PAS-2,3,3X preamplifiers. Read much more about these projects at www.audiocircle.com, Vintage Circle at the links below:

Choose a kit over a factory wired unit because it can be an enjoyable and satisfying project, not just to save money. We designed kit versions of these products to provide you with the chance to built it yourself and be proud of the results. You have few other opportunities to do this with electronics these days. Enjoy!
