PIONEER SA-8800 (Japan Version)

I have bought this cute Amplifier last month. Actually I didn´t have the chance to try it as I wished (bothering neighbors). It seems to give more than I can expect! What do you think?

Some Specs:

Effective output (both ch driven, 20Hz ~ 20kHz) 45W +45 W (4Ω)
40W +40 W (8Ω)
THD (20Hz ~ 20kHz) 0.1% or less (at the time of an effective output)
(Output 20W, 8Ω) 0.05% or less
(Output 1W, 8Ω) 0.05% or less
Intermodulation distortion less than 0.1% (at the time of an effective output)
(Output 20W, 8Ω) 0.05% or less
(Output 1W, 8Ω) 0.05% or less
Output bandwidth (IHF, both ch driven) 5Hz ~ 30kHz (0.1% distortion)
10hz ~ 80kHz frequency characteristic 0-1dB +
1V / 50kΩ: / Power amp in impedance input sensitivity
4Ω ~ 16Ω: Speaker A · B output terminal
Speaker A + B: 8Ω ~ 16Ω
Headphone: 4Ω ~ 16Ω
Or more (20Hz ~ 20kHz) 25 Damping factor (8Ω)
S / N (IHF, A network, a short circuit) 100dB or more


Equalizer amplifier circuit system: two positive and negative power supply, three-step hardwired-connection
Control Amplifier Power: 2 positive and negative, FET first stage
/ Phono1 impedance input sensitivity, 2: 2.5 mV / 50kΩ
Tuner, Aux, Tape PB1, 2, DIN: 150mV / 50kΩ
