Not much to say about the L -09Ms except WOW! Definitely the biggest cleanest power I've ever owned, and they bring out things I've never heard from the Allison Twos that they're driving. My dad bought the Allisons new and drove them with an Onkyo A5 for years, and they sounded good. Since they've been in my possession, I've driven them with a HK Citation 22, a Citation 16, and now the Kenwoods. Nothing compares to these Japanese monsters for sheer presence and sound quality. If you ever have the opportunity to buy a pair, do not hesitate. You won't be disappointed

Pair purchased new in 1983. Other than annually blowing out dust bunnies and cleaning fan no other PM performed. After 31 years pulled from rack, PM'd and stress-tested by ethical and respected A/V service specialist using MTE with valid calibration tags.
Two cold-solder joints on input PCB were found and reflowed with MultiCore 3.5% silver solder (F'-RHoS!). Hitachi beer can electrolytics tested in-spec so were not replaced.
Using Audio Precision APX-555, Report of Test shows 410W and 422W respectively into 8 Ohms resistive, 20Hz-20KHz to distortion spec of 0.020%. First time I ever heard fan(s) at full speed. Quite amazed and very pleased.
