    I have (2) Parasound 855 HCA amps for sale.

    I would score them a 8/10 according to Audiogon specs.

    They have been babied. Smoke free home, work flawlessly.

    I have the original packaging and manuals. Will be double boxed.

    $395 Each plus shipping.

    These replaced my Yamaha 992 a couple of years ago and they sound so much better than the amps in most receivers. The clarity and seperation are fantastic. I had two of them because I was bi-amping my Martin Logan main speakers. I no longer can bi-amp because I now have tube amps in my system. You can read some great reviews on AudioReview

    Please email me with any questions. [email protected]

    What's the output of these amps? I am taking it that you have 2 of the 5 channel amps correct?
