Bottom Line:   
Bought this as faulty. It really only needed a good going over with contact cleaner.

Its performance in Class A mode is simply superb.

Given it's age and that it cost only NZ$65- this is a real turn-up for the books.

It runs very hot idling in Class A of course, but get some sounds flowing through it and the depth and clarity of the reproduction is fantastic. I'll certainly be on the lookout for another.

Switching this to Class A/B makes it a nice, but not spectacular integrated amplifier, but Class A - Well staggering. If you find one for sale it's well worth buying.

Bottom Line:   
Do yourself a favor and buy one of these amps whenever you see one for sale. This tank makes other amps of it's type a joke. When running this bad-boy in 'Class A' mode the 3-dimensionality of the sound is totally phenomenal.

Low-end, high-end, and mids are all beautifully rendered without even a hint of shriek or mud, regardless of volume level. Hell, I've even occasionally used it to listen to movies in stereo instead of surround! For those looking for a quality integrated amplifier regardless of it's age, look no further than the Yamaha CA-800.
