I'm selling my 7 channel IPS-1 amp, 150wpc into 8 ohm (200wpc into 4 ohm).
It's in near perfect condition with the exception of a tiny scratch on the side. You can't see this when it's in a rack, and I've done my best to show it in the pics. Smoke free home, no pets, used only by adults. I'm the original owner and will ship the amp in the original triple-boxed shipping boxes. The original manual is included. I have used this in my home theater, where I have a 5.1 system. I had two channels in use for bi-amping my B&W 9NTs (2 channels L, 2 channels R, and 3 for center and surrounds). It sounds terrific! I have never had any problems with it, it works perfectly. It has always been in a cabinet with nothing stacked on top of it, so has been well protected. I'm selling because I purchased a 5 channel Adcom amp to replace it... mostly because I wanted to try something different and I got a good deal on the Adcom.
Yes, we can arrange an audition if you are local to Minneapolis. Question? Call me at 6one2-865-1786.

This high tech amplifier features the same cutting edge Class H design and minimalist approach in the signal path. With an unbelievable 120dB of separation between channels, low THD, and servo controlled DC offset, there's no chance of any adjacent channel information mingling with your front or center channels. The lack of transient "smearing" in your music or movies helps to envelope you in the listening experience and reduces listening fatigue.
What does it sound like? IPS-1 is a very neutral sounding amp with virtually no coloration of its own. It has a smooth, extended and detailed top end without artificial "etching" of the high frequencies. High damping factor provides excellent driver control and unparalleled low frequency authority and extension. Exceptional dynamics round out this impressive amplifier.
