Strength:

Reliable(these pieces are from 1980,and are still deadquiet,no kracking and things)
Vintage looks
buildquality is very high,so is the weight..
Totally stressfree soundquality
no problem driving dificult loads

Weakness:

poweramp a little bit on the warm/soft side of neutral,but just a little...

Nice to see that there is a review here of this highly regarded amp.
Used it for a very long time,and is still in my posession.
Powered up a lot of speaker systems over the years,with confidence.
Never had problems driving what kind of speakers.
Now,it can use some revision,very normal after a 27 years of labor.
Still it sounds great,but is outclassed by my croft tube poweramp,wich is more natural and lifelike in sound.
The p-250 can give you still great soundfield and depth,better than some newer other brands I have tried over the years.
Relaxed sound,and a bit softer than modern transistor design.
It gave me a lot of pleasure over the past 14 years,in wich I used it daily.
I still use the c-200 once in a while,connected with my tube amp,wich still sounds fantastic.
The c-200 pre is still high standard,and a bit more transparant than the p-250.
I keep both units permanently,just because it,s a fantastic combination of quality and sound,30 years old craftmanship.

tyrebyter   Audio Enthusiast [May 12, 2006]
Strength:

Construction and asthetics.

Weakness:

Headroom

I don't think it was available in the US but was available through the PX (Army) back in the 70's. It was a very nice bit of equipment far ahead of it's Japanese cousins of the time. Nice sound, sharp transients not a lot of headroom. Outclassed by my GAS Son Of Ampzilla. No matter. It was stolen back in 1978. I do miss it though.
