This is one those Japanese masterpiece that is almost impossible to find Stateside. The specs on this is simply incredible. It weighs more than 70 lbs, produces 170W in 6 ohm and peaks with 490W in 2 ohm, has an amazing DAC section and five line/tape inputs and a phono section that will accept MM (2.5mV/ 47 kohm) or MC (160microvolts/ 220 ohm) cartridges. Built and finish is really top notch and something you would expect from an integrated amp that lists for $2,700 in 1998 (it would list for $4,300 in today’s dollars). Sonically, this integrated would put many pre/power combo costing up to $8,000 to shame. Music was clearly defined, tight, transparent and smooth. The power reserves on the A-2001 was abundant and drove just about any speakers in our store with ease.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Some scuff marks/light scratches here and there but nothing major. The amp has been switched to operate on 120V and serviced with worn out parts replaced. We don’t have the original box but will have it securely packed for safe shipping. Local pickup due to its weight preferred.
