Had this amp, sold it and regretted selling it, but found it again, hooked it up to the Marantz HD-77 and the sound was just right for me, the Marantz HD-77 have just been sold, but the DCA401 will not leave anymore, good sounding little amplifer.

When I was a 10 year old brat, my older brother came home with a brandnew stereo, a Sanjo with matching furniture.

It had this DCA-401 amp in it, what looked very impressive to a 10 year old kid. This amp is now sitting at my parents home, broken. But I tell you, I had loads of fun with this amp !

Bass en treble dialed to 10, loudness on and the Sanjo speakers spit out lows like it was a walk in the park. At a point I even hooked up two pair of speakers, asking 4 ohm and it delivered. There where melt fuses to protect the speakers from overloading and I had to replace them a few times. LOL

For 10 years this amp has been severly abused by me and eventually it broke... But now that I'm back into vintage hifi, maybe it isn't a bad idea to have it fixed. Bring back the nostalgic feelings :-)



re: DCA-401

I found this little amp for only 25€ and I loved it from the first look, it’s nice and simple, just the plastic knobs aren’t the best of touch, I use it every day at work in my studio, I can say that it sounds much better than his pricing, despite the simplicity his regulations are enough complete for good listening, just the loudness is so strong so I feel the need of a adjustable one.
Rock solid! A 40 yo amp used 8h a day,
