What else to know about the P-300?

It is a mistake to calculate the value of a power amplifier solely in terms of $/power or cost/power. Other more important factors should also be considered to asses its overall value such as those power qualities like low distortion, well-regulated power supply and power bandwidth, as well as additional functions and appearance values. Music delivered through a good power amplifier should have an extra quality of deep, rich bass and the subtle nuances of inner musical fabric which stir and warm the soul with emotion. A good power amplifier must also have the range to reproduce precisely the softest to the loudest passages of music and, at the same time, it must hbe able to handle shoutout distorting, all the margin input amplitudes that may be involved. The P-300 can coast through all of these requirements without strain due to its large, heavy-duty power transformer.

Brief History of Accuphase

Kensonic Laboratory, Inc. had originally been releasing its products under the brand name Accuphase, but on the occasion of its 10th anniversary the company was renamed to Accuphase Laboratory, Inc., thereby unifying the brand and company name. The word Accuphase was adapted by taking the prefix ACCU from the word "accurate" and combining it with PHASE which is an important factor that relates to the innermost essence of audio technology. The unusual and somewhat difficult to pronounce name was a complete unknown in the beginning, and the company was often thought to be foreign rather than Japanese. In June 1973, one year after its formation, Accuphase moved to newly built premises in the Aoba district of Yokohama where the company is still located today. In August of the same year, the long awaited first models went into production: the separate power amplifier/preamplifier combo P-300 and C-200, soon followed by the AM/FM tuner T-100.
