The output stages sound vibrant and clean. Often amps in this category can lack in mids or the clarity in the higher frequencies but we find that the SU8600 has no shortfalls. Simply pure and dynamic vintage sound! It also has the classic 70s look - bonus!

I bought this as new when working in a HiFi shop.
I still have it and I must say , it never let me down. As I'd the opportunity to try almost any amp available at our market at that time - this was absolutely the best choice, Clear and deap sound that you can listen to for hours without getting tired or hear some sounding that wouldn't please your ears.
Quality is excellent - design is so cool - terrific!



re: SU-8600

It a big amp that has the look and click knobs except for balance, it's got the same power as the slightly more expensive SU-8080 that can be used with a mc cartridge (su 8600 only mm)a very good effective loudness and generally the bass for this amp is above avarage.

Cons the speaker connections, most amps from the time don't have more than decent,okay speaker pinding posts, that often don't let you use banana plugs or spade, max 2.5 mm cable stripped wire.
