Technics EAA-2009/SU-2009/SU-40A/Technics 40A 65,000yen (March, 1968 release)
69,500yen (around the 1970 time)

Stereo power amplifier of a tube.
The model number is changed 3 times with EAA-2009, SU-2009, and SU-40A.

The Mullard form is used for circuitry, the low noise tube 6267 is adopted as the first rank, and low internal resistance and 12AT7 of a high amplification factor are adopted as the driver stage.
Moreover, the thing with a cathode coil is adopted as an output transformer, and high output of a pentode and coexistence of low internal resistance of the triode are aimed at by covering cathode NF of 6dB over an output tube.
Moreover, NF of a main loop is 20dB and the distortion at the time of an Output power is suppressed to 0.1% or less.

The circuitry is adopted as the bridge which combined current feedback and a voltage feedback, and it can carry out variable of the dumping factor continuously from infinity from +0.5 to -3, without changing gain.
This dumping factor variable functionality can choose the two-step of all the bands and a bass region of 500Hz or less by the change of a switchpoint.

The level control of a right-and-left independency, the low-pass cut-off filter (15Hz or less, 6 dB/oct), the speaker phase circuit changing switch, and the speaker impedance circuit changing switch are carried in the interior of the front panel
