Been searching for a while for an amplifier, and decided to buy this one. And non je ne regrette rien, I will never resell it. This is one of those little gems that was made in the period when manufacturers did their best to compete with the rivals and this one shows that. Simple circuit, sublime sound. The contour knob is nice to have if you want to listen at low volume and still get that bass punch. If you pair it with a pair of efficient speakers, you will have more than enough power to have your neighbours complaining. If you see one buy it!

Picked this Dual CV 80 out of a neighbor's trash pile. Was in almost pristine condition. Out of curiosity I hooked it up.
Was completely amazed the beautiful sound! I love the frequencies which the tone controls boost. The Treble controls somewhere in the 12-16kHz range adding beautiful air and shimmer to music. Similarly the Bass control gives a nice low range of control which adds tasteful lows. This little amp has given new life to my vintage DCM Time Windows by giving them the very high end they always seemed to lack via my McIntosh amps...
I'm keeping this little gem!
