Years ago I got this amplifier and I have been using it with a pair of JBL N38ii, and I must say that its sound quality is impressive. I have been collecting records for several years and although the vinyl range is lower than that of the compact disc, I prefer it to the latter.
A month ago I got a pair of SB-X500A and my surprise has been enormous, since the tonal quality achieved has far exceeded my expectations.
I can only say that I love my sound system, this also includes the aforementioned SH-8015 equalizer, a SL-D2 turntable with Shure M44 / 7 cartridge, which I use every day, plus the St-Z11 tuner and a deck RS-B50, also a compact disc player SL-PD9.
My records of the 70's and 80's sound great.



re: SU-V3

My father always bought high quality thought the 80s and 90s and up until about 4 years ago one of these sat collecting dust. Have myself (need to look them up) technics 4" driver with tweeter mid range floor standings which I purchased about 15 years ago and they were maybe 10 years old then they are great and this wee amp with a bit of dark side of the moon. 1/4 volume and that was all they could take I was very impressed . Not so much my mother sold for $100nz dollar. Still have the twin record tape deck. Now to get my hands on dads 1993 onkyo grand integra system.

re: SU-V3

I have just purchased a Technics SU -V3 and I'm very impressed. It performs very well for it's age and the sound quality is excellent. Before this I'd been using an all in one system and it just wasn't doing the job (I am a stickler for quality). I like to have the TV running through an Amplifier as Sound Bars seem a little under par compared to an amp unit. Also a friend of mine sold me a record player which had a grounding wire connection so it seemed right to upgrade.
