    My Lafayette LR 800 gives me that feeling. It’s basically a rebadged Kenwood KW-70 that’s good looking and sounds good. Plus it's somewhat oddball.

    I think this beauty was previously shared but it's worth seeing again.

    Does this unit qualify as "Vintage?" Although I don't use DAT but rather Nakamichi cassette, I wouldn't mind having one of these.

    Is it true that this amp was the reference model for Onkyo during its time? And is it also true that it doesn't have any clipping protection?

    Considering it was introduced around 1989 which is 30 years I’d call it vintage.

    It's a definite looker I like design choices they made with it aesthetically when compared to the Kenwood receivers it's based on. Plus it's an oddball which honestly I tend to find the odd stuff particularly interesting because it's not often seen.
