Either color...if you are thinking about moving to a different amp, keep me in mind. Thanks

    I would love a Halo A21 too. Kev, if you get more than one offer, send the seller you don't purchase from my way. :p

    I have a 3 month old A23 in black that has about 50 hours on it that's in mint like new condition. I'm just waiting on a B&K amp to arrive before putting it on the block.

    I have a black Parasound A21 that I will be selling. Purchased in December of 2016 from a local authorized dealer. I have the original box and manual. Need to do some research and see what the going rate for these are. I would rate it as 9/10 due to it being used but otherwise in excellent condition. Shipping this will be pricey though.

    I have both A21 and A23's. Don't settle for the A23. The A21 is beast mode and will make your SDA's sing.

    Good luck with your search. I use to have two A21's bi-amping my SRS-2.3s. The system sounded great. I had the matching Halo pre-processor and an A52 for my center and rear channels.

    The silver stack is long gone, I miss it! Ten years ago:

    I concur. I had the A23 for a bit before splurging for the A21. Huge performance difference, especially if your speakers prefer lots of juice. Very large and heavy though so make sure you have the space.
