Carver A-500X Amplifier

This is a great amp that works and looks flawless (manual included), but I want more power for my 4 ohm speaker; as if 400wpc is not enough... The amp has adjustment pots for each channel on the back, RCA unbalanced inputs, and 5-way binding posts for both channels. The lights and meters all work great, and the amp has no hum or hiss.

This is one of the last Carver amps before their shop (local to me) closed, and it sounds great for music and movies!

$300 plus actual shipping; paypal or local pick-up preferred.
