    Technics SU-MA10 amp.















    Early 1990's amplifier with an onboard DAC, which connected directly to the power amp section.

    Via the digital direct circuit with a decent CD transport, this has a very nice and transparent sound, if slightly veiled and soft in the lower registers with the wrong speakers, very good dynamics though slightly lacking in current capability, therefor prone to clipping with difficult speakers.

    Also had a reasonable quality and a reasonably quiet phono stage, and digital inputs and outputs making it a very versatile machine in its day.
    Via its digital direct, even with speakers as sensitive as 103db, this amp is virtualy silent due to its superb specification, though slight hiss is evident outside digital direct with very sensitive speakers.

    As you can see, this amp was very well constructed, apart from its power input, phono sockets and binding post's, it weighed 25kg and was a bit of work to manouver into many racks due to its size and weight, power consumtion was a maximum of 920w indicating some class a operation I guess?
    Power output 100w into 8ohm, 140w into 4ohm which indicated some current capability shortage, as you can see on the spec sheet, some quite decent specs regardless of HiFi Choices average + rating.

    None the less, quite reasonable and enjoyable with the correct speakers and its dedicated SL-PA10 cd transport.

    The matching CD transport looks superb with this amp, and they make a good pairing, though bass is slightly lacking, maybe due to its optic only output?

    I am currently on the look out for a mint replacement Technics SL-PA10 cd transport myself.



    Sadly the CD transport is not as well constructed as the amp, but is of reasonable weight and average + performance.

    Both were readily available during the ealy 90's and the amp often appears on ebay, the rarer items are the matching DAT, cassette deck and tuner.

    Original 1090's RRP of these units, £800 for the amp and £450 for the CD transport.

    I myself used my amp since 1992 within a variety of systems, with various sources, dacs, phono stages, and speakers, it spent a lot of time as my main amp, also within a second system, and as a backup, it has always offered good service and been reliable, apart from its habit of blowing the tweeters of difficult speakers at high volume.
    Though not a giant killer or the last word in bass grip and taughtness, still a good choice. Also has an enjoyable headphone output, which I currently use with a pair of Seinheiser HD 25.






    STILL WANTED.. REMOTE CONTROL FOR A TEAC VRDS T-1 CD TRANSPORT! Me\'s lost mine...

    I browsed the Xmas edition of Hifi-News at the bookstore at lunch today and had a laughing fit. For dubious reasons of "good taste", the editor and snappers decided to decorate the reviewed kit with sprigs of plastic mistletoe and scattered bits of styrofoam (to look like snow) So KITSCHY!




    ^ It had a review of the NAD C315 BEE. The most junior of the latest NAD integrateds, it measured a respectable 55W/80W into 8/4 ohms. I reckon it can even drive a Dyn standmount. Best of all, it looks better than the C325BEE - being much sleeker.

    Bless NAD for always achieving better specs with every successor to its legendary 3020.

    I'm tempted to get one to hook to my Neutrons.

    SS, I see how its tempting, being slim and tidy, and cheap, but I woulnt expect great shakes performance wise. I cant see it being as good as amps like the Creek Evo.

    Afriend of mine has just purchased these. Hooked up to Dynavector amps and Well Tempered Referance turntable. He's just been given the go ahead with planning for a lounge extension to house them

    That looks gorgeous, but I think the (what looks like a modified SME) arm in pictures 1 & 3 looks strange with the "Horns" to balance it. Stunning apart.

    I have to admit, I didn'tnotice the "horns", that is weird. Just a shame it's $27k
