FS: Parasound HCA 1500a

Consolidating my man-room setup.

Cosmetically solid, but shows signs of use. This amp used to have a rack-mountable face plate. Well, it wouldn't fit into the space that I needed it to, so I decided to cut the 'ears' off. I filed the edges down and painted with a magic marker. They are not perfectly straight, but close. You can see by the pictures. A couple of years ago I got a quote from Parasound for a new face plate which they still had in stock.

No issues with functionality, and it sounds fantastic paired with my SDA 2a's.

    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    This is one of my favorite amps. I have one in storage only because I went integrated and I can't bring myself to part with it.

    Chances of coming across a deal like this again are slim to none.

    2 channel: Anthem 225 Integrated amp; Parasound Ztuner; TechnicsTT SL1350; Vincent PHO-8 phono pre; Marantz CD6005 spinner; Polk SDA2BTL's; Cables ZU Mission IC's, SC and power cords, all into a PS Audio Dectet Power center.

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

    Other; S60'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.

    Political memes posted as fact and accepted as fact, are sign language of the ignorant, for the ignorant

    tonyb said " but even socialists can do a good thing here and there

    Social media makes dumb people dumber and smart people dumb then dumber.
