Default The most NEUTRAL/transparent sounding Adcom ?

Hi guys, I am looking second hand dual mono ADCOM amps(designed by Nelson Pass) to power studio speakers and I am looking for a very neutral and transparent amplification(least possible harmonics). It also have to be at ease with 4 Ohm without much noise(good SNR value).

The prices are very nice for the value, so I was very interested.

Would you please tell me which models made by Nelson, have these characteristics ?

If you know of anyone selling their Adcoms, also please let me know


Thank you very much!

Papa designed the Mosfet GFA-5200 (not dual mono), 5300, 5400, 5500.
But none are remarkable until you bias them beyond 1/2 A and get the PS ripple below 4mV.
The big daddy 5802 is supposed to be pretty good, but it holds its value.
