OK, let me restate the question....

Has anyone tried a Dyna Stereo 70 on their Mark Audio drivers?

My question was more of a suggestion to those looking for a good amp. To my ear, reworked Dyna amps always sounded detailed and sweet. Probably a good match for MA drivers.

No, but the MA drivers are really going to telegraph the ST70s shortcomings.

It's certainly not without reason that a substantial market for not only replacement clone OPTs, but revised driver boards, etc.for the ST70 long predated Mark's drivers.

Tubelab Simple PP should definitely be on anyone's short list - simple terminal strips allow for quick testing of all 3 operating modes. Not a full kit, per se, so more time is required to collect hardware, iron, etc and fabricate chassis.

My daily drivers are single A7.3 (Pensil) & dual EL70 (Castle micro-towers) - in pentode mode the SPP has all the power I need in moderate sized rooms (320 and well over 400 ft Sq). In a much smaller room (under 200ft) a pair of 2A3 or EL34 SE are more than enough - the room acoustics start becoming far more of a problem before the amps compress/distort objectionably.

Alpair 10.2 in Pensils for mains and Mar-Ken 10.2 center channel in a 650 FT SQ Room

Fan cooled Denon AVR-591
Serious sub woofer for below 40hz

Has anyone ever used the preamp part of a HT receiver in a tube amp project?

HDMI audio sources are pretty nice.

For my MA Alpair7.3 pencils, CHR70 double-till and various mFonken cabs I switch between Ladyday 300b monoblks (about 8w/ch) and a FirstWatt J2 (25w/ch). I think the FWJ2 is outstanding and is my favorite unless the recording is too bright/"digital" in which case I prefer the LD monoblocks. I also enjoy my bottlehead 2A3 monoblocks on these speakers at lower levels for a fleshier presentation.
