Vintage Dyna ST 70 in good working condition is available for trade for a working Sonigraphe SA 250 amplifier.
This ST 70 functions without issue. It was reconditioned by a world class custom tube amplifier maker years ago and then boxed and stored until about two years ago. The unit has the desirable transformers with cloth leads. All circuitry was inspected to make certain it followed the original schematic and then tested for any needed upgrades for aging parts. The only parts replaced were four coupling capacitors on the input board which were sourced to sound as close to the original caps as possible. The only other difference between this amp and completely stock is that the stereo/mono switch has been removed and the high end amplifier designer Who builds $10k mono amps and who did the tech work said that the ST 70 sounds better in stero anyways. It would be easy to install the mono/stereo switch with a few minute wiring. There are also two notches- one on each side of the bottom plate. The bottom is still functional but it does have two 1 1/2" cut outs.
The cosmetics are average to above average for the units age. The cage is in nice shape with no rust and the chrome though not new in appearance is still not rusted through or significantly pitted. All tubes function but you might want to experiment with new EL 34's or the tube of you choice. The amp has a wonderfully musical sound that is open and focused and involving. This is a back up amp and I would like to have a more powerful unit to experiment with.
Your Sonographe 250 does not have to be in mint cosmetic condition but good good mechanical condition.
