Amp Info?

Bought this little amp this morning from our local recycling centre. It sounds really good, but I don't know much about them.Any information would be gratefully received.Many thanks.

From what i could see on the internet it looks like its a DJ's amp prob used for either putting the decks through or as a PA amp for his mic.It it sound good with an acoustic guitar mic'd up then why not.It's still an amp and i did see someone playing a small synth through a diff version of it.
