Default Trade a 6L6GC tube amp for a pro amp?

Some of you may remember my DIY 6L6GC tube amp that I built, which was based on the Harman Kardon HK-250. I have around $400 worth of parts alone invested in it, but I am not interested in finishing it.

It works well as-is and sounds great, but it needs a fairly strong input signal because of the unity-gain preamp. I estimate it is 20-25 watts per channel.

All components are high quality, and it would be easy to tweak this amp for more power if desired. It is currently configured for Ultralinear operation.

What I am hoping to do is find someone who has some good pro-audio amps with around 500W (per channel) or so into 8 ohms. I figure someone might have some laying around and might be looking for a tube amp to play with. I prefer QSC or Crown, but will consider anything of decent quality, regardless of age. Must be rack mountable and have XLR and/or TRS balanced inputs.

Also interested in non-working pro amps for a fair price, and also Pro speakers and subwoofers, preferably EAW. My most desired amps are ones such as Crest CA-9, QSC PLX 3002 or similar, Behringer EPX3000 or similar, Meyer MS-1000A, Crown K2, stuff like that.
