This model features the X-balanced circuit topology, but was released prior to the 'Alphas' which were an evolution of the X-balanced design.

 

It's a very nice sounding amp, with 160WPC into 8 ohms - just like the big top-of-the-line AU-alpha907 models from Japan which followed.

 

Best of luck with the sale!

Just reading again,i think that international models were not labeled alpha?only Japanese one's, they had alpha and non alpha running in parallel on the production line

Lovely looking amp. I am sure it will find an appreciative new owner.

It's easiest if you break it down into the generations of amp.

 

As per the above, the AU-G99X is a sixth-generation amp released in 1984, and featured the X-balanced topology - as per your images above which say "X-balanced amp section". 

 

In 1986 the seventh-generation  amps were released and the 'alpha' X-balanced topology was introduced. Regardless of whether it is a JDM series amp (with the Greek 'alpha' character included in the model name) or the 1987 'international' models without alpha in the title (i.e. AU-X701, AU-X901) they are all branded 'alpha x-balanced' on the front and all contain the evolved 'alpha' x-balanced circuitry. 

 

For the avoidance of doubt, this is the front of the AU-X701:
