Bottom Line:   
Gee nice amp. Plugged it in and woke up after 57 years sleep. It's that good I am hearing favourite CDs for the first time - great. I could wax on about the sound but I have found most reviews fail when trying to verbalise what something sounds like. All I can say is it's excellent value for money if you can score a second hand unit. Don't worry that it is 20+ years old, still sounds great. It won a lot of praise when it was released and I can see why.

Strengths: 1. Sound amazing, great deep bass, plenty of power
2. at last I have a pre amp that I can adjust the volume control with my boxing gloves on.
3. Pre amp knobs a great conversation starter.

Weakness: 1. Power switch at rear, and gives tha speakers a bit of a thump when powered down. I thing I will be an environmental vandal and leave the power connected 24/7.
2. Big knobs take some getting used to.

Regards,
Brad.

Bottom Line:   
The Densen DM 20 is a nice looking pre. The big knobs are the eyecatcher of this amp.

The sound:
strong and quick.

I used a lot of preampliferes. And I can say, for me there is one better: the Audio Research SP 11 Mk II.

But if you see the price, there is no other Pre around that beats the Densen... since this time.
