Looking for someone with experience with this amp. Thoughts? I'm kinda wanting another power amp for a 4th rig in my house. And found this amp locally. Asking price is $325. Not sure if that is a good price. L10 preamp is another $175

    It was one of the best amps I've ever had here. It had the flickering power switch too.

    I sold mine for 200 or close to it.

    I needed some spare cash. :#
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    Nothing but great luck with my old Acurus and replaced it with another Acurus and the thing kicks but. Doesn't get a lot of action but when it does it serves it up. A2007

    I’d love to score an Acura’s myself just every time one comes up I’m not in need lol

    Ive never heard the A250. I can say I enjoy the 200/3 3channel on center n rears.

    A number of years ago I got to listen to an Acurus 100X3. It was a really nice sounding amp. I almost bought it but the price was a little high and I found out it may have issues driving low impedance speakers. The A100X3 apparently has better current drive. I assume the same applies to the A250.

    I currently use the A100X3 for my center and rears. It is a great sounding amp and fits my needs.

    Yes both are vintage Mondial amps. I'm pretty sure I have a good idea who bought the mkii version ;)
