Lots of clean power. Best sounding high power receiver I have used. Use the direct feature and by-pass the tone controls. Great phono pre-amp that does MM/MC. Instant improvement over other high end receivers.

Handles 2 ohm loads but runs a little hot. Drawbacks. Don't like the bass tone controls that add some computer expanded bass. Some might like it but I rather run it clean with the direct CD feature that by-passes it. Also, the tuner for the USA market isn't as good as the one for Europe. Can be upgraded but why? FM deesn't come in as clean as some others and has too many auto features that make it jump around.

Better tone controls and a better tuner w/o the fancy auto features would make this perfect. For pure power though it sounds better than most. 125 wpc as clean as can be and I bet does a bit more than that.
