This is a reprint of a vintage do-it-yourself article by Edward T. Dell. The article is 12 pages long and is titled "The Brute". It describes how to build a deluxe version of the popular Dynaco Stereo 70. This means it has a much bigger power supply and no compromises in the choice of parts. Not a project for the faint of heart, but well worth the effort if you enjoy constructing audio amplifiers.
