You *sure* it toasted the output transformer?
Better double check this. Very unusual to blow
both at once, or to blow the OPT at all.

You partly answered your own question, basically,
a 60W Sunn *is* a Dynaco Mk3 with a preamp.
The front panel socket on a Mk3 is wired for and
supplies enough current for a Dyna PAM-1 or
Heath WA-P2 mono preamp, which you ought to be
able to pick up for dirt money. Pop out the
"mic" input and stick in a 1/4 jack,or use a 1/4
to RCA adapter, you'll have gain out the wazoo,
maybe *too* much.
