    I have purchased both of these amps. I don't have them yet but will within the week. I will only keep one and will offer the other here first. E-bay if no interest. I am not sure which one will sound better. I would sell the Adcom for $125 and the HK for $150.

    If you have any interest, let me know-it may help my decision for which one to keep.

    I might take the HK PA2000. Let me know if those prices are solid, and also pictures with rating would be nice...

    Thx,

    I have owned both and they perform very well. If the HK makes it's way to eBay, make sure you spell Harman Kardon correctly. I got $237.50 for my HK PA2000 back in July on eBay but I think I got rather lucky. If I were in your shoes, I would keep the Adcom but I don't know your needs.

    Hopefully this comparison is helpful:

    Adcom GFA-535 Pros:
    - uses little rack space
    - very well constructed
    - bullet proof and will drive 1/2 Ohm load if you need it to
    - very clean sound
    - large toroidal transformer

    Cons:
    - I didn't care for the twist knob binding posts
    - not as much power as the HK (when HK is bridged)
    - can't run 4 channel like the PA2000
    - no 12v trigger

    HK PA2000 Pros:
    - flexible 2x100 or 4x45
    - adjustable output knobs to level match
    - high-current design
    - 12 volt trigger
    - has standby mode

    Cons:
    - HUGE
