This is a brand new item, box was opened upon receipt to inspect for shipping damage and then placed into storage. The item has never been used, plugged in /powered up or hooked up. It comes as new with all accessories as shown. This is the silver and gold version. I have too much equipment on hand. This amplifier was bought on impulse. I had good intentions on maybe someday putting it into my system, but now I'm sticking with my marantz gear and improving on that, thus I have no need for this item. I have to make room, as my storage space is dwindling. I am an Ebay seller since 2004 with over 600 100% positive feedback ratings. This is my first foray listing here on Audiogon. The listed price reflects the fact that the box is open, it is otherwise a brand new item as stated.
