I bought this second-hand from the original owner, an audio nut who upgraded every year regardless.
It definitely grunts out a LOT more than the rated 60 watts. The separation and sound stage are superb (given the right space, naturally). I matched it to a Rotel CD player, and WOW!, I have never heard music reproduction sound so crisp, dynamic, and alive, it positively sparkles in the air around you.
I have 3 other Rotel amps, all of them are truly superb, but this particular one even leaves the others in its dust, it's that bloody good. Rotel could charge 10 times the money and I reckon these would still sell.
BTW, I just saw one for sale at $500, not bad resale value for a 20 year old bit of kit. Folks must be catching on.
