Thanks guys! That is a good looking amp, I've always been a bit of a closet Technics fan as well ;)

I'm up for it! ;)

Always been my ambition to own one of those Technics amplifiers from the 80s with the big meters on the front panel, but have never found one. Peter, if you do come across one of these during your travels, please think of me! :)

I may be wrong but do not think it's worth R2500, think the newer model Chario Hiper 1000 mk2 is +/-R4500 new

But are they any good? May buy them for a friend who wants a cheap improvement to his sound (Pioneer SR-303 sound familiar? :))

Saw some postings referring to them as "notorious".
