PRICE LOWERED. Recent ebay auction ended at $691, but for a pair that had scratches and one of the faceplates had all the logos scraped off.
A pair of highly regarded Musical Fidelity M250 monoblock amps are available for only $900 (originally $2400). These powerhouses were designed by Musical Fidelity to be “non-temperamental, bomb-proof” and are effectively monoblock versions of their more famous Nu-Vista M3 stereo amp, minus the tube. I used the M250’s for many years on a variety of speaker systems, including electrostatic panels, and they handled even the most difficult loads with aplomb. I have now switched 100% to active crossover speakers which require many channels of amplification, and although I planned to keep the M250’s forever, I don’t foresee going back to needing 2 channels.
I am the original owner. These are in really great condition, perfect working order. If you are in the SF Bay Area (zip code 94610), I would be happy to demo them, although I only have one pair of regular stereo speakers, and because they are easy to drive, wouldn’t show off the amps well.
Original boxes (including double box for shipping) and manuals. PLEASE NOTE: Shipping estimator gives values for 1 box only. Multiply by 2 to get the actual shipping costs.
No trades. Prefer local sale.
