Technics SU-V90D Integrated Amplifier

Hi all,
Just wanted your valuable opinions on this amp. I did a bit of research and found out this was at the top of the technics line in the late 80's/early 90's. Just have a few questions...
1.I am presently using a Marantz PM7000 to drive Wharfedale speakers. Will the Technics be a big upgrade?
2.Do Technics amps have a warm or bright sound signature?
3.Will the phonostage be better than my NAD PP3?
4. It also has a DAC. Will this be an improvement over my NAD 521i CD player?
5. Is it risky to buy semi-vintage amps with regards to availability of parts? I don't want to be stuck with a good looking brick few years down the line:).

Thanks in Advance
