strengths: its hot potato made, instrument input on the front, clean and versatile, great on microphones and instruments. excellent value for money (at the time)
weak point: not notched knobs difficult to settle for a stereo pair. attention to the aging of the lamps (but they are not hard to change ...).
Very good choice for me (to start, touched on occasion 15 years ago) ... there are certainly better now but to possess in their arsenal
