I was considering bidding on this Cambridge Audio A500 - anything I should ask about or consider first (i.e. different versions, criticisms about its sound)? How much is reasonable? (I'm only considering this since it is a store-owned item.)

    So, maybe 200?! (a joke - say ha) What would you offer if you needed a quality sounding amp on the cheap?

    Also (v. quick responses will do) - will I have any trouble connecting to either this (my only available outs right now) or a minijack (from my computer) until I can get a special audio card in a few months? Also, is it possible to wire a sub to this, or will that be difficult?

    No it should be easy.

    Depends on the sub.

    Subwoofer hookup should be easy, it has a set of pre-outs. You can always fall back on the speaker level terminations, for the subwoofer.
    CTC BBQ Amplifier, Sonic Frontiers Line3 Pre-Amplifier and Wadia 581 SACD player. Speakers? Always changing but for now, Mission Argonauts I picked up for $50 bucks, mint.
