This is a great little stereo amplifier. Don't let its small size fool you though, it delivers the goods at 110W per channel into 8Ω. Make sure you grab a compatible Technics tuner if you want remote control function though. Mine came with ST-S98 Tuner.



re: SU-V98

A forgotten gem from the late 1980's for sure! A great sounding, powerful New Class A, two-channel amplifier. No frills, plenty of inputs and a nice digital VU meter. Pick one up and you'll feel the quality--it is a heavy little amp for its size! A couple of notes:

1.) For the remote to function you will need a compatible Technics Tuner (mine is ST-S98) and the proprietary remote cable that goes from the tuner to the SU-V98. Also, you will need to have the RCAs connected from the tuner to the amp or the remote will not work. You can leave the Cassette lead on the proprietary remote cable disconnected if you want; it is not needed for remote function.

2.) The fan on this unit does not kick on until output reaches >/= 40Watts output. So don't be alarmed if your fan isn't running at lower volumes, just make sure it has room to breathe.

re: SU-V98

yes. this is nice amp for sure....is it possible to use a programmable remote for basic functions?

re: SU-V98

It is not possible because the tuner has the IR receiver for the remote.

This site rocks

This site rocks, I can't believe I found the exact informatiom I was looking for with the first click on a search page. My amp is at least 20 years old, It stopped working and wouldn't reset turning off then on. Opened it up and found a resistor burned beyond recognition, found out here what the value is for it. Thanks so much!
