For Sale: Classic Denon POA-1500 Power Amplifier
An ocean-going vessel of modest displacement arrived recently so I’m buying some new stuff which means some old stuff has to go. Serves little purpose to keep beautiful things like this in the linen closet. Alas, it won’t fit on my rack as it’s nearly 19 inches wide.
Audiophile power amp made in Japan. 120v US version, 150 watts per channel at 8 ohms. THD of only 0.002%; Signal to Noise Ratio of 123dB! Normal and high-cut filter inputs with level controls. Subsonic filter. Resembles this Accuphase
, but for considerably less money!

procedure I’ve ever seen and here it is playing Zep.
It delivers a powerful, authoritative, and crystal-clear sound.
Cosmetic note: slight scratch upper left of faceplate, above meter--see detail photo below. Similar scratch on top rail adjacent. Minor wear and tear here and there, keeping this from being a 9 out of 10. I’ve rated it a 7 to be conservative. Generally presents well though as you can see. Note this is the official 120v USA model, not the 220/240 model shipped to Europe and Australia.
$375 plus shipping to AG buyers. It’s a fairly heavy unit--ask for a quote. Please note: the AG shipping estimator is generally higher than actual. I always cover PayPal fees. 48 CONUS only. Thanks for your interest.
NOTE two additional detail images of the lower left corner of the face plate. Minor scratching I hadn't noticed before and there is a slight inclusion in the underside edge of the glass--not on the face. It's right at the corner and very hard to see. Meanwhile: I'm listening to the amp all evening and it's really quite wonderful.
