Class A integrated amplifier, then it is very hot! But it has a clear audio and soft high frequency.

Simple design. CLASS AAA amplification becomes available to consumers. Excellent value for wattage output. Started my hi-fi with a Techincs SA-200 in 1978 with BIC speakers. Year later upgraded to Technics SU-V6 with ADC Soundshaper EQ paired with ALTEC LANSING STUDIO 12 speakers. WOW what a joy at the age of 16. After my brother ended up with my SU-V6 to this day; went on an EBAY splurge in late 90's; now have multiple SU-V8 amps and SU-V6 along with matching EQ's, tuners, processor, timer.

one of my all time favourite integrateds,at a 105/ch it has enough headroom for those difficult speaker loads.my JBL 100s seem to thrive at the end of the speaker cables and the sounds are so realistic,its hard to beleive i'm listening to an amp



re: SU-V8

Class A in this instance is just a Technics marketing moniker on a more sophisticated Class AB circuit, this is not a true Class A amplifier, a 105 watt class a amplifier would be huge (~ 2x size) or need active cooling (fans) or both.

re: SU-V8

Nice machine. Sound warm and detailed. Excellent manufacturing quality. After 40 years (1980) still working very well.
Price/performance really unmatchable. Another great Technics device.
