PAIR of Parasound HCA-1000 amps.
Sequential serial numbers: 213099 and 213100.
These have MINOR scratches on top. No rack rash around the mounting holes. Four 1-inch tall, McIntosh-style feet on each amp.
These are stereo amps but have a switch on the back panel to run them as monoblocks.
That is how I ran them, but when you read reviews, many people like them better as Stereo amps.
Perhaps the best value in a Home THX Ultra-certified amplifier to be found anywhere. This John Curl-designed amplifier brings out all the subtle details of your music, yet still has the punch for the boldest crescendos and home cinema special-effects explosions. It also features automatic turn-on, making it ideal for home theaters and custom, multi-zone installations.
