The TA-FE230is an excellent amplifier for your first seperate hifi system. The Bass and treble features are'nt exactly excellent but theyre certainly good enough. the amp sounds different depending on the type of speakers connected to it, I have a pair of Sony speakers from the mini system, MHC-RG110 connected to it and the sound quality is great. It has 6 inputs and 2 outputs, both of which are being used on mine to enable me to record on both my tape deck and the CD. deck.
I have found that being able to control the speakers on or off from one knob very useful. The amp features a loudness switch which when switched on, boosts the treble and bass by quite a signifficant level, if you like bass that doesnt dominate the sound but is noticeably there then this is an ideal amp for you.
With a power rating of 120 Watts, its quite loud, I havent been able to really hammer it but ive manged to have turned up just over half-way, the volume dial is'nt numberd but if it were, it wouldve been around 7 on a 1-10 basis. The sound was not distorted in any form and the bass and treble still sounded the same, the bass was not cut out or anything.
The amp is ideal for a beginner in seperates but is not to be under-estimated, It may look simple and bland but it really does kick the power out, an excellent amp for every day use.
One downfall, when played at high volume for about half an hour it does get very hot indeed. Not a good idea to have an all night party with this one, u may set fire to it haha!
Summary: Loud, Excellent Sound, Easy To Use
