    Howdy,

    This thread is for an Adcom GFA-555 amplifier. This is a two-channel amp rated at 200wpc. It is a real power beast, but it has been relegated to operating my zone 2 speakers and I can't justify using this monster for that purpose. Plus, I need the money for my home theater habit (you know what I mean.... its an addiction). Anyway, this is the GFA-555 that is rack-mountable with handles and is in excellent cosmetic condition and perfect working order; you'd be hard pressed to find one that's better. I'm asking $400 plus shipping.

    BTW, if you'd like some feedback/background for me, feel free to check my eBay ID: burrelm.

    Great/Good F!$@*(ing AMP

    I miss mine. Used one of these in college days. Bumpity Bump...>Thump goes the 15" woofers lol I Think i was driving some Cerwin Vegas at the time with it. Using a Line level to rca converter and sony receiver for the preamp. Thing would roll for like 26 seconds after turning it off ..Nice caps in that amp. Heavy Deal.

    Yea, this baby certainly is powerful. It used to power my mains, but I got a few Citation amps and this puppy is simply overkill for my little zone 2 speakers.... Strangely enough, I'll miss this amp too when its gone. Most of the time I'm not too attached to my electronics, but this one is an exception.... [​IMG]

    BTW, I almost forgot to mention that I have the original manual as well.

    Unfortunately I don't own a digital camera. Do you need a description or is there any other info. I can provide? Let me know and I'll try to help (and thank you for passing on my ad).

    Take care!
