Direct Digital Amplification
Heard of it, quite some time back(around 1998): (http://www.stereophile.com/content/pure-digital-amplifiers) 
Will changing gain affect frequency response?
Seems I missed(spaced) the part where you brought the volume back down, at the listening position.    Kinda obviates Fletcher-Munson from the conversation(sorry). 
Will changing gain affect frequency response?
I suppose looking at a Fletcher-Munson graph may be a good idea, as well: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fletcher%E2%80%93Munson_curves)

Output threshold using a Dynaco ST-70 amplifier with passive pre.
Contact Joe Curcio.  There are a plethora of upgrades, that can be done to the ST-70's power supply(simple and complex).  He's an expert on the piece. (http://www.curcioaudio.com/)

smotojo- Don’t believe you’ll find any 5 ways with crimp connection. Many come with a terminal/soldering eyelet that fits over the threaded part of the post and is held by the mounting nut. The end of the threaded post should have provision for so...

The spacing and hole size of the stock Maggie post is standard, so- changing to Vampire or WBT 5-way binding posts(I've done both), is simply a matter of assembly, tightening the nuts on the new posts and soldering the leads to the new terminals, ... 
Volume Control setting corresponds to how many db down (-db) from 0db at full volume?
WAY too many variables, from system to system and from recording to recording. 
new marantz sc7 and sm7 system I bought from Japan in 1979.
Some of what you've listed have been sold recently on ebay.  Keeping your eyes on the site will give a pretty good idea of their current worth.  Of course, what people are asking is not necessarily what the pieces are bringing.  ie: (http://www.eb...
