Very Nice!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I owed this amp for over a year and was very pleased. Ended up moving and sold array and amplifier. On my PowerMaster I could easily get 650+ watts out while staying within the factory drive levels. Has all the protection a guy could want for an amplifier. Only downside was you had to purchase this amp direct from Japan but from the time of purchase to the amp arriving was less than two weeks. Miwa was great answering emails and all questions. Tokyo no longer makes this model but replaced it with a better 500 watt model with a Preamp this time.

If you in the market for a 500+ watt amp with a preamp, check out their new model. A++++++++++++

Easy and powerful  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Picked up one of these gems about a month ago. Puts out a full 500w and barely gets warm. Runs quietly. All sorts of protection (overdrive, high swr, overheating, etc), so it would be hard to damage this amp even if you tried. The price tag is high, but if you want top of the line on 2m, this is the way to go.

Great AMP  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Everything you could ask for in a solid state 500 watt 2 meter amp.
The Yen is down 20% so it is a good time to buy from this maker direct. They ship USPS Express mail. Wire transfer on Tuesday have the amp on the following Monday. Now that is customer service.
