    You still didn't list your budget, but this is for sale locally: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/ele/d/rotel-rb-993-three-channel/6548682809.html

    Could pick it up and arrange to ship it to you.

    I've been eyeballing a couple Parasound HCA - 1203A's on EBay but with shipping the cost is over $600. They have been listed for a while I think they are a little too pricey......thoughts?
    For around $250 I could pick up a pair of Marantz ma500's to add to the one I have in the closet and be done. Speakers are Polk S60 & S30.

    Don't know much about the MA500s but that would be a nice setup, imo.

    At that price, I don't think you could do better, and you already own 1 of 3 needed? Go for it.

    From what I recall the Marantz MA500s are a bit thin sounding, solid power but not particularly good bass.

    I would just look for something like a parasound HCA1205a. Finding a good three channel amp at this point is like a unicorn or the holy grail, may as well just get a good 5 channel amp and plug in your surrounds or passive bi-amp the towers with the extra channels...

    Crap I'm looking again the one I received had one channel at least 15db quieter than the other two.

    If Paul doesn't hook you up, there's this one... Not sure if they're willing to ship. For the price, it would be hard to beat. I had an Acurus A80 that I loved. Can only imagine what this one would sound like with 3x200 in 8 ohms!
