the quality build, inside and out. Alps potentiometers, Large Elna power supply caps and a well thought out interior wiring scheme. I also think the power transformer weights about 15 pounds! Rated at 80 watts into an 8 ohm load. Most of its life this amp has powered a pair of 6 ohm JBL L60T loudspeakers without ever breaking into a sweat. I also used 4 ohm studio monitors as well. I believe its power ratings were on the conservative side for sure

Audio Current Amplifier with CD direct button for pure cd reproduction. When you press CD DIRECT button, all circuits which are not necessary for CD playback are bypassed and you can enjoy pure digital sound.Switch for PHONO MM/MC.



re: TA-AX500

Je confirme, ampli acheté en 1991 d'occasion et toujours au top, aucun soucis et son excellent, bouton CD direct pour avoir le son CD original. De plus, la brochure montre des spécifications excellentes et une puissance élevée. D'occasion bien moins cher que certains ampli pioneer, marantz ou sansui, mais je ne suis pas certain qu'il soit moins bon, à comparer en tous cas. Poids 11 kg !
