What a lovely, tiny powerhouse. Deliveres 2x27 W at 8 ohms, some 2x40 W at 4 ohms. I no more recall how this amp came to me, years ago.

Sounds great, and with 4 ohm speakers even, delivers power shaming today's 2x100 W bulk amps. The SA-410 still has the warmly penetrating sound of Pioneer 70's amps, to it. This little beast just rocks. Right now, the SA-410 is driving my Canton CT-1000 speakers, like nobody's business. Even when volume turned up to 12 o'clock and beyond, SA-410 does not exhaust and start shouting.

The sound is rich, throughout the range. Bass, though, is not as convincing as that of Pioneer 70's powerhouses. The sound is well-balanced, though not extremely detailed.

All the switches and controls no more are as rugged build as those of the 70's Pioneers. Yet the sound is there. Makes me reconsider all the amps, I owned in last 35 years.

In the 70's, for me it was choosing between the Marantz and the Pioneer sound. I ended up choosing Pioneer, as Marantz amps and receivers I figured back then, were not reliable. The Pioneer sound, in my taste back then, beat the amp sound by B&O, Harman Kardon, Tandberg, Yamaha, etc.

Starting from early 80's the Pioneer sound not was the same, it used to be. Amps such as SA-330 and SA-530 for instance, were jokes, compared to Pioneer sound of late 70's, even. Just to mention, for back-up purposes I still own the receiver SX-780 I bought in 1978, for my 2nd set, and I still love the sound.

One finds these SA-410 amps, for ridiculous prices - even for free. Find you one, go get it. This amp is far more than a bedroom amp. Not for loud house party, though.

PROS:
+sound
+compact-sized
+3 power outlets, in the back panel

CONS:
-none
