This is a spectacular amplifier for anywhere the price. Superior in performance to integrated and separate pre power amplifiers costing many times its cost. It has basically the same power amplifier as the excellent C1 and C2, but with slightly less power. It uses a tube preamp section for a smoother, more relaxing and lifelike performance. Lightning fast with surprising transparency and detail and extraordinary finish and build quality. It projects a huge, deep soundstage.  It is ideal for pairing with a C3 for a 5.1 system and also with a C2 for a 7.1 system. That way your CD player plugs into the a120 and is not degraded by the mediocre performance of your Audio Visual Amplifier.
The remote control changes the inputs as well as the volume.  The volume and input selected is shown on the front display.
