Bottom Line:   
I have been lucky enough to own many great amps and I would definitely call this a GREAT amplifier.
there has been many glowing reviews here so I will just say that of all the amplifiers I have owned this is the one I have chosen to never part with .
I had to narrow down my collection to only one containing separates so it came down to Pioneer spec 4 or the Mitsubishi and the Spec is gone and I have no regrets.

Bottom Line:   
I recently sold a M-22 Pioneer with the C-21 pre-amp and the F-26 tuner. I have used a lot of differant things for many years I have had the DA-C7 for about fifteen or so years hooked to a Carver M-400t amp, Sansui 5000a reciever B&K Sony TA series Integra stuff. I hooked this DA-A10DC up to the DA-C7 and wow eat your heart out Carver. It has more power than the Carver so 100 watts? way under-rated in my opinion. I have this running through a pair of EPI model 500s and WOW is all I can say. I sold the Pioneer set-up for 2000 I bought this Mitsubishi set for three hundred total. The sound of the Pioneer was a touch smoother but only 30 watt amp and very weak in the bass. Great for the apartment listener. ENJOY ALL

Bottom Line:   
This amp is everything everyone here says it is. I wanted to be selfish and keep my opinion of this amp to myself in hopes that it stays under the radar. While everyone else out there is chasing the Yamaha Marantz Pioneer Sansui sound I will be happy as a clam listening to this Mitsubishi and paying a fraction of the cost for just as much (if not more) sound!

This is a 100W amp - audioreview.com has it wrongly listed as a 75W - that is the DA-A7DC....

What can I say? I have not heard very many amplifiers in the sub-$1000 price range that sounds anywhere near as nice as this! I am using it with a Mitsubishi DA-C20 Preamp/Tuner and the DA-M10 Power meter module. I use this with a pair of Paradigm 9se's (Original, not the MKII/III's) The amp has a wonderful sound and with these speakers they create a large, almost live-in-your-room soundstage.

The looks of this amp is every good as it's performance...too bad for Mitsubishi that their audio offering at the time was lost in the mix of their poor quality cars and appliances. (Good for us owners who can buy these for a reasonable price!)

My Tech buddy who has been servicing equipment for 30 years told me these are so rare around here that mine is the first set he has ever seen in person! He went on to tell me he thinks it is one of the best he has heard!

If you are looking for a high-end amp on a budget and can find one of these...GET IT!

Bottom Line:   
After seeing one of these things online, and then reading the reviews, I bought one. I agree with the other reviewers in that this is a wonderful amp in many ways. I use it with a Ming Da tube preamp and a set of 86db sensitivity Maneplanar 1.4s. Even with these ineffeient speakers, the sound is wonderful. Maybe a little lacking in the bass area compared to others I have used, but effortless just the same.
My suggestion is in relation to the appearance of these. I love the looks in stock form, but they really respond well to some contemporary industrial design updates. I replaced the led with a centre-mounted blue led, and made a polished wooden faceplate for it. That brought the looks into the nineties, but I have now ditched that idea, and am working on a lucite faceplate edge-lit with blue leds, ala Copland amps. Every person who has seen this thing loves the look, and can't believe that it was originally built in the 70s. When they hear it, they believe that even less!
Anyway, I have nothing but praise for these. If you care abouot industrial design as well as great sound, get yourself a serious high-end looking (and sounding) amp for almost nothing, then get to work with your creativity. Enjoy!!!
