    I love Sunfire actually. Yours is a really good amp. I also know the guy you bought it from.

  • It sounds Amazing!!!! The guy had alot of really nice equipment. Very knowledgeable.
    Smoke free home. I had this same amp about five years ago and had to sell it when I got laid off. This one sounds better then my last one. I had the plastic speaker connects, this one has the gold metal ones.

    You heard right. The rumors that he's 5'4" 120 pounds and looks like he's 18 instead of the 35 he claims to be was put out there by haters.

    I strongly suggest you get that amp to someone that knows Sunfire - the work done on it was done by someone that is not familiar with Sunfire. Further, the person that did the work did not have access to the service manual for correct calibration after the recap, nor did he have access to required service bulletins.

    There’s more to refreshing vintage gear than just swapping out capacitors.

    Is this what you are talking about?

    If so then it was $3K list in 2000. So it certainly isn’t selling for $2K in 2019.
