My current modern amplifier. Very good amplifier, high build quality (20kg), remote control.

Sound: transparant (will reveal bad speakers/sources), detailed (but not too detailed), not fatiguing, amazing detailed bass (has good woofer control).

I use it mainly for Jazz/Classical/Soundtracks. It is a real sleeper, back in 1996 it cost 2000€, so it was high end. It can definitely compete with high end modern gear.

This little brother of the legendary PM15 is vastly underrated; its performance is remarquable with a particularly good bass performance paired with balanced mids.high, allowing for days of fatiguefree listening be it from analog or digital inputs. By today's standards, it may lack some details which is more than compensated for by its overall balance and self assured sound. Considering the insane low prices of today for such a gem, it represents a unique opportunity to get a high end amplifier that can be restaured easily with top components. I did so with mine and was rewarded with a fresh and dynamic sound that most probably is above the original performance.
Recent comparisons with modern amplifiers at around 2000/2500 euros put these modern items to shame!
