NAKAMICHI PA-5 Stasis Power Amplifier: Refurbished; 1yr. Warranty

     pcX Pricing: $399.95 USD

pcX is now offering for sale, a stock of “classic” late 80’s solid-state gems - the NAKAMICHI PA Series Power Amplifiers, designed by Nelson Pass, utilizing his legendary Stasis Topology.  These were drastically under appreciated (and under-priced) 30 years ago…..and are an unbelievable bargain today – as well as looking way cool (like a Nakamichi Dragon cassette deck, or Lamborghini Countach sports car).   All these amps have been cleaned (INSIDE AND OUT), inspected, tested, and refurbished - as necessary…and all come with a 1 year Parts & Labour PCX Warranty.

Nakamichi PA Series Power Amplifiers

 These Nakamichi PA Series Power Amplifiers are as musical now as they were in 1987. Designed by the famous audio engineer Nelson Pass, they incorporate Stasis technology, allowing them to react to the changing, real-world electrical values of your loudspeakers. They’ve also got ‘80s swagger to match, with looks inspired by Nakamichi Dragon Cassete Decks and sports cars like the Lamborghini Countach.

 All our Nakamichi Amps have been cleaned (inside and out), inspected, tested and refurbished as necessary. They come with a 1 year Parts and Labour pcX warranty.

 Stasis Circuit:

Nakamichi Power Amplifiers are designed to drive “real-world” speakers – not just the load resistors used on the test bench. In real speakers, the impedance changes with frequency and the reactance keeps current and voltage out of phase with each other. The Stasis circuit in Nakamichi Power Amps are designed to adapt to the changing electrical characteristics of your speakers to give you musical, transparent sound.


Tremendous Current Reserves:

High-power toroidal transformers, independent high-current rectifiers for each channel (PA-7 only), and huge filter capacitors provide a tremendous amount of reserve current. It’s all delivered to the speakers via high-power output transistors, creating a wide “safe operating area” designed to handle the reactive loads in your loudspeakers. 

The Sound:

Nakamichi Power Amps are known for being warm and gentle on the ears. They deliver musical detail with power and transparency without being bright. You’ll love just how coherent your soundstage will be with a Nakamichi in your sound room.

Questions for the seller
Can this be used to bi amp speakers? I have Usher 6371's that I would like to bi amp.
The PA5 can't be strapped into mono...however, they would work well in a a vertical bi-amp configuration. We have 2 of the PA5's....use one stereo amp per channel for the high's, and one channel for the low's. Great idea. I could do a pair of PA-5's for $750 + shipping.
