SOLD -- Parasound HCA2205a (220 x 5) Amp -- SOLD

Recommended Posts

SOLD

Well, I never thought I would see the day but I'm selling my Parasound HCA2205a (220 x 5) amp. Then again, I never thought I would move to a 7.1 system either. This hobby never ends does it? LOL

This amp has been the core of my home theater for the past 3 years. This amp delivers a solid 220 watts x 5 continuous @ 8 ohm and 300 watts x 5 continuous @ 4 ohm. It provides very tight and powerful bottom end and is very detailed. It's a beast weighing 85lbs and is built like a tank. Only reason I'm selling is I upgraded to this Sherbourn 72100a (200 x 7) amp.

It is not Mint but is in overall excellent cosmetic condition. I have the original box and packaging. Unit is also Rack Mountable too.

The Parasound has performed flawlessly for me other than channels 4 and 5 do have a hum (seems common with Parasound amps) and has been this way since I purchased it from another forum member 3 years ago.

Am willing to ship since I have the original double box packaging but it will likely be expensive at 85lbs.

Locals are welcome to come by and demo. I currently have it connected in the 2ch living room setup to my RF-7ii's and man does it make them sing. :D

Because the Sherbourn is 7 monoblock amps in one chassis with 7 teroidal transformers. :D

I have this hooked up to the RF-7ii's in the living room and it sounds beautiful. :D I'll enjoy it as long as I can.

Is this still available. If so, let me know, I'm coming into town this weekend. I sent you a PM a few days ago. Thanks,

Chad, it was very nice meeting you and your family today. Feel free to stop by again the next time you are in this area.

The Parasound will allow your RF-83 / RC-64 speakers to reach their full potential and give you the ability to add surrounds to your setup down the road.

That is awesome.

Can you say, "cruise recoupe money"? :biggrin: Maybe not all but sure helps.

Congrats on the sale.

Thx Bill, yes, it does help to put some money back in the bank after our cruise. :emotion-21:

FYI, I listed my NAD 2700 in the Garage Sale tonight.

It was a pleasure meeting you and your family as well. The amp sounds great. The one noticeable difference is how much better the center speaker sounds with dialog. It's much clearer, and much easier to make out what they are saying. Thanks again.

That's great to hear that it made a very noticeable difference in your system. When I added it to my RF-83 / RC -64, I noticed improved bass (even at lower volumes) and better separation of musical instruments when listening to music. For HT, without the amp, at high volumes, the speakers would sound strained. With the Parasound, it was as if they were saying, is that all you've got? Bring it on! LOL Hope you are able to enjoy it for many years to come.
