A pre-main amplifier that adopts the design of separate amplifier SC-6 and SM-6.

Pure A-class 30W + 30W with full push-pull DC configuration for all stages. The power is high in freshness and does not cause switching distortion in principle.
In addition, it can be changed to AB class 120W/ch with a single switch. In order to reduce the difference in sound caused by switching, a high-speed high-fT transistor with a cut-off frequency of 90 MHz is adopted in the power stage. Switching distortion, which was said to be a weak point of AB class, is minimized, and it is finished as a delicate yet powerful AB class amplifier.

Low-TIM design for the control amplifier as well as the power amplifier. Carefully selected materials and sophisticated circuitry improve the bare characteristics. The amount of NF is reduced to eliminate audible distortion.

The power supply uses a newly developed 22,000 μ F super audio capacitor and a compact transformer filled with special resin and heat-resistant measures.
In addition, a heat pipe with a high heat exchange rate is installed in the heat radiation mechanism to cool the high heat generated during pure A class operation.

Equipped with a straight DC switch that connects the phono amplifier directly to the power stage in order to improve the quality of disc playback.
For this reason, each block has a low distortion and a high S/N ratio, and the MC head amplifier, which handles minute signals, uses transistors with a single channel of as much as 13 koku, and is polished to a level that is sufficiently valuable as a single unit.
In addition, the phono input switch is equipped with a cartridge load selector of 27k Ω, 47k Ω and 100k Ω, so it can be used with any cartridge.

The tone control is independent on the left and right. The loudness circuit is equipped with a 2-point type that can be adjusted by + 8 dB and + 4 dB at 100 Hz. It can be adjusted to critical according to the characteristics and volume of the listening room.

Equipped with a speaker selector switch capable of simultaneous playback and switching.

Uses a subsonic filter to cut out unwanted ultra-low frequencies.

Equipped with mutual dubbing circuit by two decks.
