Old and solid from the outside. Did you compare it to something serious?
Lots of knobs and switches: crackling noises and mediocre sound. But if you like it ...

there are a lot of fine sounding Pioneer, Sanyo, Kenwood amps . The Japanese do have an affinity for "fussiness" but many of the designs from this era still sound quite nice.

a classic British belt-drive -- the conniseur (sp?) BD-1 + Grace 707 in a DIY base.

I built this 20 years ago. sold it, it came back 15 years later & a good friend has it now.

Wow. That Pioneer looks mighty familiar. My first amp in college was a Pioneer that was obviously from the same family as that - doesn't look exactly the same - mine didn't have the reinforcing crossbar, and fewer switches on the front.

Like you, though, I was very surprised at how good it sounded. I was ready to replace it with an entry-level 'audiophile' integrated (Arcam maybe) and when I demo-ed them side by side the Pioneer held up very very well.

brings back good memories of back when I actually had lots of spare time to really listen to music......
