Unless the model number has been re-used, this is a 1989 model.

What are the first two letters of the serial number? And, models from the mid-1980s usually had the year and month on the serial tag.

J is 1989, H is August.

So, it is 1989.

Apparently, New Zealand.

Parabolic: Post a photo of the A-445 and the box it came in. Also, look at the owner manual that came with it for a printing date or copyright date.

Also, I have a photo and description from a 1989 catalog. PM me with your mail address and I'll send it to you.

BTW, this amp is 60W at 8ohms, 80W at 4ohms.
