    I need one for testing speakers. Would prefer a mono block (something like a Marantz MA-500 or ???) or something bridgeable would be great but any stereo unit will do. Also If you got a good amp & blew a ch. or one doesn't work now would be the time to unload it. Like I said, only need one ch. to get me going [​IMG]

    BTW, I'm poor but do have a paypal account [​IMG]

    I will entertain any offers that Chris rejects. [​IMG]

    I'm looking for something to drive a pair of bass shakers wired in series, so the lone requirement is one working channel that can handle 50 watts at 8 ohm.

    Well David, I've haven't had any luck so far [​IMG]
    You might be able to get away with an older receiver.

    Chris, that's just what I did today, as a matter of fact. I was able to locate a (somewhat) older inexpensive Kenwood stereo receiver, so I must recind my offer above. [​IMG]

    I have a Carver M500 amp that I am not using. Both channels work but the RCA connectors either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Grey with 2 big meters.
    If that suits your needs, email me and maybe we can work something out

    Frank,
    but it does have a volume control on it correct?

    Grant,
    An oldie [​IMG] LMK what you want for it.

    BTW - when I used to hear that song (Ministry) I always thought older Butthole Surfers for some reason (Dust Devil I think it's called???). Gotta like "Who was in my room last night"

    Chris,

    I'm sorry, it's sold.

    Yes it does have a volume control but it's not considered an integrated amp. It's sort of like the same thing on my Parasound HCA-855a, it has a knob for each channel on the back to control the output but it's not an integrated amp.

    Frank
