Rated 5 out of 5áby Aficionado Pioneer A10 amplifier - ú120
The amplifier was linked to a Marantz tt42 turntable and Mordaunt Short M10 speakers (ú70). In my opinion this set-up brought out the detail of the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour album (stereo version on new 180g vinyl).
The amplifier has the feel of quality and the sound reproduction to match.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ddub A lot of Amp for the money
I actually went to get the DENON PMA520AE which was the same price, but they didnt have any in stock, so I opted for this Pioneer A10 instead.
Im glad I did. The sound quality is superb. Loud, punchy and crystal clear, even when flat. The Loudness switch gives a full rounded sound on my Mission M33i's, even with the volume dial at 30%.
The Amp is very very black! , so black its hard to see what setting the dials are on, but that said the build quality is great, made with quality materials, and the amp is reassuringly heavy.
It would have been nice to have an IR remote, but at this price you cant really complain.
The staff at the Leeds branch were friendly and knowledgable, without being pushy. I even got my ú5.50 parking paid too. Result!

Rated 5 out of 5áby PineappleKush High value, excellent output quality.
Having owned this amp for just a couple of days, I can safely say I am extremely satisfied. Phono input, dual speaker outputs, balanced sound signature... hard to think of much more you could ask for from a ú120 amp. Pioneer have outdone themselves, and as per usual RicherSounds have shown why they are still the big name in sound in the UK despite every other industry being demolished by online sales.
I'm not using phenomenal monitors (Cambridge Audio SX50) but they are exercised nicely by the A10 amp, and I look forward to upgrading, and adding a sub into the mix.

Purchased my amp today, fantastic amp for my flat which is a similar size to the demo room, I'm using it with a Project elemental turntable and Wharfdale Diamond 9 speakers, they are a fantastic combination together for the money I can believe the bangs you get for your bucks with this amp.

Rated 4 out of 5áby flatlemon Excellent, clean looking amp!
This amp is very good value for money and setup was easy - within minutes we had speakers hooked up to it and tunes playing.
Would definitely recommend and look forward to making use of the MM connector in the future.

I've replaced the amp in an old Sony music centre with this amp and I'm really pleased with the quality of the output. I wanted an amp with a phono stage so this is ideal, good value, looks good and sounds really good without adjusting the tone controlls. Loudnees function is great for low volumes.
