    Not in, just wanted to comment. These old Haflers are very good amps. I have a XL600, has a 1 ohm rating. Somewhat of a beast it is, and it is a keeper.

    Very nice Karma.
    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk Signature S60's with ZU Audio IBIS jumpers; Cables: Wireworld Eclipse IC; Audioquest Big Sur IC; ZU Audio Mission speaker cables; PS Audio AC-3 power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

    All TV's sound enhanced by Polk Magnfi Mini's.

    Other; SDA2BTL's, M10 series II, M7C's, Hafler XL600 amp, RB-980BX, Parasound HCA-1500 amp , P5 preamp, all in storage. All speakers have had crossover rebuilds, resulting in a small fortune invested in Sonicaps, and tweeter upgrades.

    Some pics.

    I've seen upgrade kits for this that seem reasonable and was going to do that at one time but as usual, I got distracted :D

    Sorry all, I know the pics aren't that pleasing. It just needs a lil love.

    Thanks Doc,

    It, along with other stuff was being stored in an unfinished 2nd level storage room. The room did have heating & cooling duct work at least.
