it was sold in the u.s., and is an excellent integrated.

Thanks, I'm familar with Accuphase and the cult following. I can understand why, they have a very nice liquid and musical sound.
My concern was with this particular model possibly being from a grey market item and in the lower/bottom end of there model line and I almost virtually can not find much information on them or a professional review (if that means anything) except for a tear sheet and one site of some owners comments. I'm just trying to find out more info on this particular amps performance and sound. I'm also trying to find out the fair market value.
Do you find it strange that there is not much difference between the 4ohm load and 8ohm (90w@8ohm, 115w@4ohm)? It's a not an A-class amp. My speakers are 4ohm @ 85db but the amp is still pulling it's weight much better than I would have thought.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the simple questions.
While a perfect SS amp would double its power every time the impedance is halved this requires a massive power supply, something like the big Krells or my CJ 350 or MF NuVista M3. My Meridian 605s, although very good amps which cost $3500 a pair in the early 90s will not do it. Amp specs tell you little about how an amp will actually sound or perform in a particular situation. The bottom line is if you like the sound don't worry about the specs as long as it is functioning properly. Some combinations that look bad on paper are very good in actual use.
