    As all ways Cj, you come through :D . I picked this amp up from work and it's a real beast, dual mono powers supplies and I think it's about 150-200wpc into 8ohms :eek: so just wanted to see what others thought. Using my fluent Japaneese (alta vista babel fish ;) ) and your link, it a 1987 model, Pioneer's attempt as a reference class amp. I'm quite happy with it, it drives my Dyn 42's nicely and they're all I can realistically fit in my tiny student flat, but it drive's my Wharfedale Pi40's at home fine and my dad's Mission 753 (which need a far bit of grunt and current, really) fine so I'm not ganna change it, especially at the price I paid ;) . Thanks again.

    I got a used A-717 3 years ago - couldn't find any info on the net. Pioneer-Japan was kind enough to send me a 1 page spec sheet which I reproduce here.

    FTC continuous power output (both channels driven)
    20Hz-20kHz, .003%, 8 ohm.... 100W + 100W
    4 ohm... 135W + 135W

    Power bandwidth
    0.05%, 8 ohm...... 4 Hz - 80 kHz

    Damping factor
    (1khZ/20Hz to 20 kHz)......200/70

    THD
    20 Hz - 20 kHz, 100W, 8 ohms....0.003%
    , 135W, 4 ohms....0.005%

    IMD (at rated output)....0.003%

    This amp is a beast and sounds very good in my setup.

    Hope this helps.
