I’ve had this amplifier along with many other ones from this era for many years, the sound quality is brilliant, its very dynamic and has a very clean and polished sound, don’t let the 30-37 wpc put you off as it sounds quite powerful, probably as the ratings are real power. Could do with more inputs on the back but the sound quality makes up for this

I bought it recently for small money, just to check how it may work and I'm amazed how good it is. Very warm sound, broad scenery, dynamic bass and natural middle range. I can fully recommend.

This is a great amp. They can be bough quite cheap, because they did not reach the cult status like others, but the ICs in it are awsome and the rest is very simple = reliable. Beatiful sound, warm base with clear mids and highs. Paired with small q acoustics 2010i. I have other amps of the same era and maybe after service they will get close (or better), but as they are and I have not serviced any of them, this thing beats them all.

I have one of these (silver finish) which I purchased used. It sounds excellent paired with my Dual CS505-3 turntable. More than enough power for my needs and the build is high quality. Recommend
