Anyone ever heard one of these and can confirm the deets in the vid?

This amp sounds like a jack of all trades master of all.

It looks to be a very nice integrated amp, but very expensive. Lots of marketing in the "deets". No provision for sub integration as usual with these things....and just basic tone controls rather than PEQ. Can't see spending $9.5 k on something this limited.

I am not really impressed with this Technics amplifier. While it seems to be well designed, it contains high quality components, the manufacturer does not even publish the real THD figures. In the video published on Youtube, we see a THD value at 0.5% at rated power at 1 kHz. If that is exact as stated, a lot of affordable AVRs that cost a lot less than the listed price nearing $10K, have better THD figures, some below 0.1% and across the full 20-20K audio spectrum.

No, Technics have missed the boat with their reference integrated amplifier. I just don't believe we could hear any improvement, if any, with this product compared with a decent more affordable D & M or Yamaha product.

I thought that quite odd when I looked at the manual for specs....

Seems like a misappropriation of resources to buy one of those when it could be put into better speakers or subs. Solid piece of gear, but pretty damned pricey.
