Bottom Line:   
I gave this a 3 star in overall sound in the less than $500USD integrated amps available, but it costs only $200 new. For the money a definite 5 star.

This amp is very neutral, smooth, detailed, with a tight clean bass. It is not bright and does not have that artificial boomy bass that lower price equipment is known for. It mates well with quality monitor speakers on stands, detailed interconnects and speaker cable, and the better quality universal DVD players available. At least that is my system and this a good combination.

If you value a balanced and natural sound in a low priced, lower powered integrated amp for a second system, that will remind you of your high-end system then look now further. If you want a flashy mid-fi piece with crisp bright highs and boomy driving bass to impress your friends than look elsewhere.

I discovered this integrated amp by accident and it does not shame itself for the little money it costs. It is as enjoyable to listem to as my high-end tube based system. Where can you get a 45wpc mosfet remote controlled integrated amp remenicent of the lower powered British amps for a pitance? This amp is the North American version of the same European Pioneer A-209R model.

It is a definite keeper plus really cool to look at too.
