    Hey Noel, a friend of mine over at the AudioCircles is running the same Poweramplifier/Loudspeaker combination as myself and is using the Dynaco Pass 4 tube preamplifier in his 2 channel system and he is very happy with his Pass 4. thanks....WCW III

    It's some sort of remake, the PAS 4 was a sand preamp originally, and not worth even turning on, the only old tube PAS were the original, the II and the III.

    Looks a lot 'busier' than the old models.

    Yeah, that thing doesn't look like any vintage Dyna equipment I've seen (the Dynaco font is a giveaway) Maybe it's made by Panor? They're the ones that made the ST-70 series II. I'm sure it sounds good.

    I'm wondering if any of y'all have actually read the add. The seller quotes a 'fellow ebay member' and what he had to say regarding this preamp.

    This preamp was not promoted very
    much, I think because it was too "high-end" and expensive for the Dynaco
    product line. It is a good-sounding preamp with good parts quality. I
    believe it was built under contract in the United States, unlike a lot
    of the other recent Dynaco products which were built in Taiwan or Japan.

    Yeah audiobliss, i have already read it .these preamps seem to have come out in the late 90s and i looked them up @ audioreview and several of the owners had swapped out the 6922s for the Russian 61NP twin triodes. i know that this tube is compatable with some preamplifiers that use the 6922, but not many. thanks....WCW III

    Yeah, read the ad, the original PAS 4 was solid state.
