great sound despite its total power, I use it with JBL TLX4 speakers and it works good!



re: AU-117

Vraiment MERCI pour la mise à disposition de ces documents très dur à trouver, en particulier pour cet AU 117 de la première série qui a trop de différences avec le mkII dans le choix des composants. En plus ils sont de qualité...que c'est agréable d'avoir des schémas lisibles!
