Looking to buy 2 channel amp

Like the title reads, I'm looking to purchase a nice 2 channel amplifier. I'm searching for the likes of B&K 200.2, ex4420. Perhaps a Parasound hca1500, hca2200. I would also consider Adcom gfa555. I'm sure there are plenty more that would be comparable to these.

I would need it to be able to handle 8 and 4 ohm loads. If anyone has a spare sitting around not being used please reach out to me. I'm located in Southern California.

Thanks

    Carvers should also be considered.

    thanks %^)

    Hope I am not violating any protocol. I was about to ask about a 2 channel.

    No worries on my part Bruce, my budget would undoubtedly prohibit me from purchasing such a nice amp as an A21. Well, unless I could get it for less than 700 dollars. :D

    I know, I know, not a chance in he ll.

    Thanks for the offer but it's more than likely over my budget.

    I have seen A23s on the used market within your budget. But locally this hca-1500 has been on cl for sometime and add says he will sell pre and or amp separately.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've seen that ad as well. It is from a reseller I've had communication with in the past. I've never bought from him nor will I. He's not very truthful in regards to the products he sells, I'll just leave it at that.

    Probably not quite what your looking for but I was going through my "room of stuff" and I have a Yamaha RS700 amp I bought from Rick88 a few years back.

    I got it for my Daughter who used it for a few weeks, it was more than she needed so I got her something else.

    It's just as it was the day I got it, all original remotes, manual, boxes but Rick also included some custom made wood side covers that I never put on.

    Only throwing this out there as it's just sitting on a shelf.

    FYI, Audio Advisor has some Parasound items left at reduced prices as some of that gear has been discontinued.

    Some interesting choices, some I've heard about, some I haven't. Parasound I've heard. Sumo, I haven't.

    The parasound I've inquired about, the seller won't test it prior to purchase. :/

    Sumo is high end very good stuff.
    That Counterpoint is good also. Nice price
  • la2vegasla2vegas Posts: 3,306
    The Counterpoint states that it is a dual mono design, probably won't work with my 2.3tl's. Although I do like its aesthetics.

    Get in on the 1000va A-L torrid buy and that will never be a problem EVER. Worth every penny spent. Common ground or not the tranny can be used and makes a huge difference over a cable.

    Very good point. Who is the point man for this possible group buy?

    I'm trying to be the pusher. @vcwatkins and @nspindel facilitated the last and we cannot do it without one of them. @vcwatkins is on board.

    Don't you hate that? I've learn to just move on and not try to reason with these types?

    Jump on that B&K 200.2! I still have the one I bought from you Danny. Still going strong, probably will go McCormack eventually but it certainly doesn’t seem to be a weak link in a system with mostly higher end components
