 Technics  SU-V40  stereo integrated amplifier                   
Mid 80s model with slimline profile
Rated at 50W RMS    New class AA amplifier circuit   Operating manual

New Class A : refers to the amplifier type - Class A amplifiers have their transistors always turned on during each half cycle of the music waveform. It means they are power hungry and require a big heavy power transformer and large smoothing capacitors. The upside is no crossover distortion and a high quality sound

Class AB amplifiers are the standard - they switch off one half of the transistors when not needed and then turn them on again as the music waveform requires. This is efficient, so that you get a lot of power for low cost, but the downside is more distortion as the transistors turn on / off and on again

New Class A is the Technics amplifier circuit design where transistors are left on a small amount always - still cheap to make but with much less crossover distortion and a lot of power for less weight and expense

This is why you see
New Class A amps still going strong after 25 or 30 years - owners get a good quality sound and ample power - and so you don't have to turn the volume up too much to attain average listening levels. They punch above their weight and last and last.
