    Oops, typo in the thread title. It should read B&K AV5000 Series 2 amplifer[​IMG] Flawless condition with black brushed aluminum faceplate, this amp is rated at 125 watts into each channel. Sparingly used in my home theater and i am selling since i have recently decided to tone down a bit.
    This amp is very neutral with a warm sonic quality difficult to find in SS gear. Highly regarded/reviewed amp which has also won two Home Theater Magazine amp shootouts!

    I am very interested. I would also like to know if your asking price is in Canadian funds?

    guys,

    At a $1950CAN price tag new do you guys think i would be selling for $595CAN? This would make this amp the bargain of the century which you'll never see until many years down the road. Canadian price is $915 + shipping. Lessthan half off for 125 watts x 5, full gaincontrols and 5-12volt triggers that allow you to turn the amplifier on when turning on your preamp or processor.

    Ok,

    i'll play nice. A couple of nibbles but no bites. This is a great price on a great sounding amp! Only selling to downgrade (have other priorities).

    I am interested in the long run. I'll take it when I have the funds in the next 3 or 4 weeks. If nobody beats me to it that is. [​IMG]
