Great little amp. When used with high sensitivity speakers, it sounds very good and also no one would guess the 20wpc. I used to have one as a teenager, now many many years later i bought a clean one on eBay, still sounds great as I remembered. I have mine connected to Imperial 7 speakers (like the ones I used to have back then). If you can find a good one buy it - also a good starter restoration project.

wow..for a small unit this amp puts out amazingly great highs and lows with deep bass through my kenwood speakers (which are not expensive or high end). It seems the search for an amp stuck between a compromise of a tight budget and performance is finally over. :D
