    Default I'd like one of these. Technics 20A valve amplifier.

    Never seen one, but I'd like one!

    1966! Thought it would be late 70s early '80s from the look of it. I mean when you think of what 1960s UK/US valve amps looked like.

    I bet they are pretty hard to find.

    OTL circuitry used; fraught with danger if things go wrong! Interesting they quote performance into a 32Ohm load. Otherwise, a bit ahead of its time in 1966.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    It's quoted as 30W into 8 ohms, here is the circuit for those that are interested:

    It definitely looks better in the black finish but hard to pick up at 23KG! Nice to think companies like technics built these beautiful things. i wonder what it sounded like?

    Very clear I would think given the OTL circuit.
