This amp, like many others from Acurus, is an amazing sounding amp. It is essentially a three channel version of the A100 and was designed for the owners of the A100 who wanted to expand his system into a five channel home theater system. Of course, anyone who wanted to add a three channel amp could get the A100x3 too and if they did, they probably didn’t regret it. Power output was not the highest but was robust enough for most application. It was dynamic, richly textured and clear. It was slightly warmer than the similarly priced Sony amps from the TA-N series (also from that era) but had a distinct quality in its sound over the Sony.
Cosmetically, it has some scuff marks here and there but nothing major. The green power LED light flickers as with all Acurus amp but has no impact on the sound. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
