Default old kit amp from garage sale - has anyone heard of it

the only thing on the case is the model name - Tauno 30/2. Seller said it was from the 70s.

I bought this for 5 bucks thinking that at worst it would make a good case for some future project. Plugged it in today and was quite amazed at the sound. Better than my dayton T-amps which have been demoted to computer speakers.

I couldn't find any reference on Google and I don't have high hopes that anyone will know recognize this thing but I thought I'd give it a try.

Pic to come when I can get my iphone connected.

Ok. Finally had some time to open this thing up and get some pictures.

the transistors (i assume that's what these are) are labeled SJE5439 and SJE5440.

Can you add a pic of the back? And an oblique picture of the transformers near the back? What does it say on the little trafos?

Yes. This appears to have been an assembled board, as you describe.
