I bought this amplifier new, from an authorized dealer and have two face plates for it (black and silver), together with the original packing, materials, etc. I bought it for use as the center channel amplifier in a home theater system that used all tube ARC amplifiers. The amp is in great condition, rating reflects age and the fact that it has been shelved for several years. Since I can't recall when the amp was re-tubed, I will work with buyer to make sure that they are happy. For that reason, I'd prefer a local sale.
(amp is shown on top shelf of rack in my video system, note it is not a 'rack-mountable' face, it is simply sitting on an internal support shelf with a custom made template surrounding it). I will post more close-up pictures as soon as I get a chance. Here's a link to the ARC site with specs, etc.
I will entertain reasonable offers- and prefer a sale within the continental U.S.
I have gotten a number of questions relating to price: best offer over $1,200.
