For Sale: Parasound HCA-1500A Stereo Power Amplifier

IIRC, I purchased it new sometime in 2004. It has no operational issues. It will ship in its original box with manual and ac power cord.

Pictures below were taken last night (3/6/2018).

$500 Shipped*. CONUS Only. Check or money order. If you send me a money order I’ll ship immediately, if you send a check and I don’t know you, or I don’t like you, you’ll have to wait for the check to clear.

    If you want it brother, I'll hold it. Do you want the free shipping deal or the Hero WBT's and you pay shipping?

    B) What I do is wait for Kerry to spend a boatload of money, then jump on the deals I know he can't afford after the fact.

    So it's just going to sit and not be used by it's new owner? That's kinda disappointing.

    Nope....There's a pair of amp killing Infinities that have finally met their match! Those jokers like to dip impedance when wound up. A couple of Yammies there have let loose the magic smoke and spilled electrons on the floor.

    Ha! I would love to visit the east coast. Phoenix born and raised but wife's family is in southern Az. Glad this sold as I am about to get paid and would hate to hide a "family trip" as an excuse to run over a couple towns and pick this up. :p

    Yeah I read that in another thread somewhere, I have driven through Sierra Vista a couple of times on the alternative route to Douglas. We usually go a couple times a year down that ways.
