Good (and cheap to get) integrated amp to re-sell locally.
Well, here's an odd post: a vendor asking for help.
My boss owns a small audio shop near my house. Due to the messed-up economics of audiophile stuff, he can only afford to sell items with a high profit margin; if he did'nt, he'd go under very quickly. (Fun fact of the day: Wholesale, many amplifiers are hundreds of dollars below MSRP. However, if they were sold closer to wholesale prices, all the small dealers would collapse, and the product would then end up fizzling out, as happened to some others. Sucks, eh?)
Currently, he's looking for some integrated amplifiers to sell. He's hoping to get something for 100$-200$ wholesale, which he can sell for a good bit more at retail. Ideally, we'd like something obscure, decent, and hard to get for people in the US; think along the lines of a T-amp with more inputs and higher output power. (5w is not quite enough.)
