From Robert Harley's review: The A308 power amplifier is rated at 250Wpc into 8 ohms. It is a true dual-mono design, with separate torroidal transformers for each channel, choke regulation, and 40,000 microfarads of filter capacitance in the power supply.  The audio circuit is all discrete, and the output stage comprises three pairs of bipolar output devices per channel.  
    
The A308 power amplifier offered the dynamically effortless presentation that such high power tends to confer. It shared many of the preamplifier’s qualities, particularly the dynamic effortlessness, natural rendering of timbre, and quiet background.  The amplifier’s soundstaging was wonderful, with a natural sense of air between the performers, fine gradations of depth, and a transparency that let me see deep into the soundstage rear.

One great feature of this amplifier is that you can have one stereo channel dedicated to a high end audio path separate from your audio/visual stereo or 7.1 audio path.

One small scratch on top right of front panel (see picture), and light scratched on top side, otherwise a beautiful looking amplifier. The four small rubber pads under the feet are missing but feet are otherwise completely solid and intact.

This listing includes the amplifier, a power cord and original owner's manual.
