This one is from the period Technics made a jump into making studio equipment and took their hifi business very serious. All this is related back to the SU-8080 and it's dual mono layout.
This is one of my favorite amplifiers, it is incredible neutral, without any doubt the most neutral amplifier in my collection and has an open and big soundstage. If it has a flaw, it would be that it will let you know exactly how good or bad every recording is and most are, well, not that good.. For those who are searching for the warm 70's sound, better look somewhere else.
Because Technics is not highly regarded, this one can be found at very reasonable prices on the second hand market.
