Certainly one of the fastest, most sophisticated amplifiers of its time, from Japan and maybe ever. Used as a pure power amplifier even better. Early units are said to be sensitive and tend to oscillate, but later don't. A strong beast of 28 kilograms delivering an incredible control, pure sound quality and punch. The two of mine now have been working to the highest sound standards and without any problem for 20 and 18 years in my vintage system and are about 35 years old.
