What I was describing was a batch of 6-channel home amps on ebay a couple of years ago that were advertised as "Zapco?"

They were a closeout purchase supposedly crated in Zapco boxes, mostly unopened.

Not officially a Zapco product, but built by ARPA. I picked one up for $29+shipping. They were marketed by a company in Panama City, FL (or nearby Lynn Haven.)

I do have pic's, but can't seem to find them on either computer or flash drive here. I do have pic's at the house, but it may be a day or two.

The amp is neatly built, heatsink looks much like an M80/S80 in natural AL color. The big annoyance is the input is a single mini-DIN (S-Video) for all 6-channels. The preamp does NOT feel like Zapco quality, but it does run on a +/- 15V line from the amp via phone jack.

It sounds fine, and was well worth what I paid for it. 20W/ch into 4 ohms, something like 35W/ch into 2 ohms. Each channel has it own gain control. Not as strong as my Alphasonik 2035, and not as lively.
