3 out of 5 "Caution"
As it is with 707, 770, 870, also with 808, power to crack your speakers! or burning out the amp's output stage. The reproduction quality of these amplifier series is from the musical point of view, unfortunately not as it should be, playing lower passages of music is not the job of this Amp. Large output transistors
give you endless power, which actually got nothing to do with the sound quality! Very well equipped, but the circuit and internal design makes a lot of problems to handle the input signal properly. Otherwise you always put the volume knob to hi position, to feed the preamp with more voltage. Hearing music too loud could change the reality of the recorded sound. If it doesn't matter to you,with speakers at 8 ohm, 808 would last for parties night after night.
