Yeah, if it has a coaxial crossover it may also have optical capacitors or even muffler bearings.

The amp is a Jolida.   Maybe it is a joint advertisement Acura/Jolida...

My eldest spotted the tubes and said, "hey dad, look...tubes."   I looked, smiled and patted him on the back.   :green:

A boy like this is a bless.  We are in shortage of new audiophiles and new tube fans.
