    Hello! I'll get straight to it. I'm currently using a Technics SU-G91 amplifier. It is powering 2 Bose 2.2 bookshelf speakers, with a Technics SH-8017 graphic EQ hooked up to it. There's very little info online about this amp. Is it any good? Some people say it's cheap Chinese crapola, some say it's a good product. Thanks for your input.

    Technics were decent back in the day. I'd put them on the same plane as Onkyo now. For stereo it's probably fine, depending on your speakers; and unless you're using pristine 601, you're probably not losing anything on the receiver. I'd use it until it fails.

    Best I can figure is early 90's. Pretty much an amp is amp if it's working like it should for regular quality speaker esp for basic stereo sound (not clipping, no static).
    If it sounds good then it's fine. It turns on, it doesn't catch on fire, and it takes the signal put into it and pushes those electrons in the right direction without adding or
    subtracting anything it shouldn't.

    If you were upgrading to B&W speakers and 7.2 sound then it's a different horse or you wanted to do 110dB sound levels in a 30x50x12 room,
