Alchemist of the UK made some attractively-styles good sounding equipment in the 90's.
Tim DeParvicini of Luxman and EAR fame had a hand in designing their better components, like the one for sale here.
The Forseti ADP15A RC (from 1999 - 2000) is a 100 watt (8 ohms) integrated amplifier. It has five sets of inputs, two sets of Pre-outs (good for bi-amping or a powered subwoofer) and a line level Tape Out. (There is a set of Phono pre-Ins, but the optional phono preamp board is not installed in this amp.)
There are two pairs of binding posts for each channel, making proper 'shotgun' biwiring easy to do.
Input Sensitivity: 390mV for max. O/P
Output @ 1 kHz into 8 ohms: 100 Watts RMS
Frequency Response @ 3V: -3dB @ 64kHz
Distortion @ 15V o/p, 1kHz <0.1% THD
Distortion @ 15V o/p, 10kHz <0.5% THD
Residual Noise (Max. Volume): <0.5mV
Power Consumption (Idle): 100 Watts
Power Consumption (Peak Power): 380 Watts
Dimensions (W x H x D): 465mm x 95mm x 390mm
Weight (Packed): 15kg
This amp suffered a drop/drag incident sometime in its past, and as the photos show, the top of the face plate and gold trim pieces on the front panel have some minor damage...that you can only see when close-up.
Apparently Alchemist wasn't all that enthusiastic about having a remote, as preamp sections often sound better without one, but they caved-in to the whiners! LOL ;-) The battery compartment door was fragile, and this one is held in-place by a piece of tape. The battery is the common, inexpensive 2032 type 'coin' type. Reviewers liked to 'dump' on the cheap, fragile remote, but it does work, and has the basic required functions: volume, mute and Input selection. (Apparently there is a new one at the place or origin that was just misplaced, but when it turns-up it will be sent to the buyer)
The Forseti ADP15A RC sold for $2600.00, but you can have this one for only $1200.00 obro.
