Just arrived. Hitachi HA-6800 integrated amp.

Seventy watts per channel of vintage mos-fet* musicality. A good description and review from Gramophone begins halfway down this page.

Hi Lloyd, try removing the ratty old power power cord and soldering on a nice fat new computer power flex and stand back be ready to be astounded at the performance increase in all your seventies amps. I stumbled on this mod recently and did the same to all 25 of my 70s amps. Give it a try and enjoy the difference :) cheers Brett
