Have been using one of these for a couple of years now for 2 channel music listening after I decided my Denon PMA-1060 was just too powerful for the space I wanted to fill.

For an amp approaching 20 years old i've been really impressed by it. It's not massively powerful at just 45 watts RMS pet channel at 8ohms but i've found it to be more than powerful enough for my needs.

I've been running it using a Technics SH-GE70 EQ and the sound quality that comes out of it is epic. I've settled on a pair of entry level large bookshelf speakers Mission MV4s and the stereo imaging that the two combined produce is amazing with fantastic instrument separation. I personally love the warmness of this amp which was another reason I decided to get rid of my Denon amp as that sounded a bit too cold and clinical for my taste.

I've found pairing with the right speakers is a must and was surprised that I ended up with the budget Missions. I've tried several other pairs from Mission M33i floorstanders which sounded great but are now used in a 5.1 set up to the really highly regarded Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s which sounded brash and a little uncomposed when coupled to this amp. Once I found the right combination though i've never tired of listening to it. So much so that i've treated myself to its bigger brother the SU-A900, it hasn't arrived yet but I hope i'm not disappointed as this little amp is a tough act to follow.

re: SU-A700

I've had an MK3 version for some years, used it with Wharfedale Laser 60 (vintage 1979 speakers) and the sound was spectacular, even though the low end limit of these speakers is at about 55 Hz.

But, as I was listening music only from my computer, the sound became spectacular only after I bought some descent studio audio interface. I would describe the sound as "holographic", you could almost touch the finest details of the music with your fingers. And the quality of the headphone out on this amp is really amazing.
