    If anyone knows anything about this amp or B&K, please help me out. The auction ends in 2 days and If this is a great deal, I dont want to miss out.

    "According to B&K's own marketing materials the amp was called the Video-5 Sonata. It was marketed along the with

    updated version of the ST 140, ST 202, the EX 442 Sonata and the M 200 Sonata in the early 1990's. "

    any info would be appreciated!

    I have one, I bought it about six years ago.

    Retail was like 1,200 and I think I paid 950.

    It’s the B&K Video 5 Sonata.

    105 Watts into 5-Channels

    Very good AMP. Never had a problem in all those years.

    It was running my entire 5:1 system with a powered Sub, but now it runs (4) surround speakers in a Lexicon Logic-7 array.

    I now have a Parasound HCA-2003A powering the front three.

    It doesn’t have a cooling fan so it gets a little hot if you push it.

    Weighs a TON because of the large cooling fins.

    I’m at work now, but I can get some pictures for you tonight if you don’t know what it looks like.

    Thanks Shawn,
    I had just gotten done with searching posts that had anything to do with b&k amps and saw your post. I was just about to email you. Thanks for the reply. I havent seen anything online or even at B&K's web site about this amp. I would appreciate pics if you could. [​IMG]
