    Those of you who own an Adcom can you tell me the difference btw these models and which one is preferred based on power/performance:

    GFA-5500
    5503
    GFA-5802
    GFA-5503

    Ebay has these on sale and I want to place a bid, but would like more info.

    Have you checked Audiogon? I see some CRAZY deals on there. I would buy from Audiogon before EBay when buying audio gear.

    When buying from a dealer, you pay markup and unless you've built a relationship w/someone there (i.e. you've already spent a ton of dough) they are unlikely to cut you a deal on a top shelf, high demand product. You'd do better used.

    Anyway...

    Have you seen Adcom's page on their multichannels amps?

    I love my Adcoms. I've got a first gen 555 (almost 20 years old and still kickin') and a new 5503. Also picked up their series-mode surge protector to boot. I like the old-school look of two huge, all black cases at the bottom of my rack.

    I know the GFA series is 200w per chanel the 5500 is a stereo amp, the 5503 is a 3 chanel amp also rated at 200w per chanel into 8ohms. Very well respected. I recently got a 5500 for $450 on ebay. Hope this helps.
