super clear mids and hi, natural sound. No colour. No eq needed. well balanced low. I use it like studio monitors with ESS-PS8A loudspeakers and a TC electronic DA conversor. I can´t find a better solution for my home studio for the value of these vintage equipment

won this at an eBay auction for 36 euros, and i only use it as a headphone amp through its headphone output with my sennheiser hd600 and beyerdynamic t90 headphones. It blows the amps i had before by a distance (sanyo dcx 2300k and sansui 661), would love to know how it stacks up to high end vintage gear

I just picked one of these up at a garage sale with the matching T-X3 tuner both with the optional walnut endcaps. I already replaced the mains caps and readjusted DC offset and idle current. This little integrated sounds incredible! It also has an MC input and Tone Defeat which is great for audiophiles. The circuitry is JFET driver with a pseudo Class-A circuit ... while it does not come close to true Class-A, it does sound very neutral and balanced. This one is definitely a keeper!

The A-X3 is lovely neutral sounding amp with an inbuilt MC phono input. I've been fortunate to have owned this for more than 30 years and I am STILL amazed at the unfussed, unstressed and balanced soundstage it portrays. Fantastic battleship build, a clear and controlled mid range and bass and clean treble - if you find one for sale, don't think about it - just buy it. It will not disappoint.
