    I bought this amp from in June 2002 with the intention of buying a receiver to use as a pre/pro. I just bought a Marantz 7200 and am very happy with the sound and amp performance, and space is now an issue. So I am selling the Parasound 855. The amp is new and has only been removed from the box to make sure all channels are in working order. DC trigger works as well.
    $360 Parasound HCA-855A. Buyer to pay actual shipping and handling.
    10-year warranty card has been sent in, but it is transferable per Parasound.
