Wow. I own several Solid State integrated and stand alone power amps and this is by far my favorite one. I have the 3250b preamp hooked up to it, along with some cs-901a speakers and this little fella can sing! I play everything from jazz to hip-hop and it sounds amazing every time. This is a keeper!

Sounds like a tube amp. Bassy, controlled, musical and smooth. Definitely on the romantic side of sound. Great for vintage LPs and Jazz. Well balanced and powerful sound with slightly rolled treble. Perfect for hard rock and those terribly mastered recordings from 1970s and 1980. Classic and a keeper for sure.
