Edge G3 Integrated Amplifier in excellent condition. Rated at 85 watts. Absolute Sound Editors Choice. In near mint condition. Lovingly cared for in pet-free smoke-free home. View pic to see only one very small nick. I rated it 8 for age only. I purchased it new and have owned and operated this unit for 9 years without a problem, save for the remote that stopped working over a year ago. I checked with the company now handling Edge products and they informed me that they will repair it for $50 or replace it for $100. I threw out the box long ago thinking I would keep the unit forever - it's that well-built. I will carefully double-pack it. PayPal or certified check accepted.

Positive Feedback ISSUE 20
If there is one area in which the G3 is an overachiever, it is the size of the soundstage. It was simply massive, and came at me from all directions. Nuances that were once limited to a small portion of the stage were now everywhere. These were not new sounds, just sounds heard in a new way. Percussion abounded from behind me, keyboards hung to the right, and backup vocals were anywhere they wanted to be, at any time!
The G3's single downside, if you can call it that, is that it doesn't make up for the errors of others. Some amps are colored enough to mask or otherwise distract from the performance of CD players or speakers that have too much character of their own. Not to belabor the point, but the Edge just gets out of the way, in as natural a manner as I have heard.
I have been listening to the Edge G3 for about four months now. It may be a cliché for me to mention the many late-night hours I have spent rediscovering my CD collection, but that is what I did. I heard old discs in a much cleaner and more natural way. In many cases, I listened to certain CDs just for the more expansive soundstage. At other times I was overwhelmed with the G3's effortlessness. I do not believe that anyone can go wrong with this amp. That is a bold statement, I know, but unless you have to compensate for the drawbacks of your system, need significantly more power, have to have separates, or have to have tubes, the G3 might be the perfect amplifier for you. This one is mine. John Brazier
