Integrated Amplifier


Packed with an array of useful features found in up-market Japanese audio from the 70’s & 80’s this classic ‘Made in Japan’ shelf-bender has just had pots and switches serviced and is in full working order.


Physical condition is excellent (see close-up pictures).


The following information from the excellent hifiengine.com website:


The SA-8800 has the impressive feature which is the NSA (non-switching amplifier), created specially by Pioneer. This is a type of amplifier that adopts the merits of both class A and class B amplifiers, and it excels in keeping down the heat loss and allows the transistors to operate all the time in the active region. For this reason, a high output power with a very low distortion factor is yielded all the way up to the high frequencies.
