Re: Nikko Alpha 220 Amp

I have a nikko pre-amp beta 20, power amp alpha 220, graphic eq 20, & a Panasonic SA-HT390 receiver. I tried to hook them up & doesn't seem to be wkg. Ive been looking for company info so I can get an owners manual with the hook-up instructions, but am having no luck. Is their anybody who can help me find or point me in the right direction. Its a beautiful machine & Id really like to enjoy it for a long time to come. Id appreciate any feedback any can send this way. Thanks.

Nikko Alpha 220 Amplifier

I have two of these that share a Beta 20 preamp.

Vintage 1978. Bought them in '87 and paid $750.00.

They run hot so I run air by them with a couple of Industrial fans.

Operating DC is (+ -) 70 volts. Keep them cool and they'll go forever.

Would like to get my hands on an Alpha 440.

Hello Dave,
I have the Alpha 230 but, can't find the manual. The 220 & 230 are almost the same so if I could get the manual would be honored.


nikko alpha 220 and 440

Hi Dave !
I own a Alpha 220 ..and I can say it runs not hot. If you need the service manual,please leave an email adress for me and I will send it to you.
I owned also a 440 -I sold it last month-I used them for biamp.They did look wonderful together and make a wonderful biamp system.The 440 is an mazing amp due to the instant power capabilities..even if I wasn't very happy with the tonal balance,I must say that the soundstage was amazingly clear ...and any symphonic passage played without any dynamic limitations !

As for quality...NIKKO did built for 100 years..amazing amps!

The 220 was famous at his time,due to nonmetalic sound and natural sound...was recommended as a solution next to the valve budget :-) ..not the force of the 440,but enough power for normal listening conditions...
