Sunfire Stereo Signature 600x2

Hey guys...

It is with great regret and a heavy heart that I have reached a point that I must part with yet
another dream amp. I doubt seriously that i will be able to replace it with anything that will impress
me as much as this one does. Those of you that have followed along as I have restored this beauty
already know wat has been done to restore this 600 wpc beast. The faceplate, Joule meter, binding
posts and input connectors have been replaced. The internals have also been brought back to spec
Bill and none other than Bob Carver himself. This amp is a thing of beauty both on the outside and
under the hood where it counts. I would not ever consider in my wildest dreams parting with this one
but my Wife in Purdue and a mortgage that won't wait are forcing my hand on this one and it is truly
ripping me up inside to do this. If I could find a job that pays better than 8 bucks an hour in this
OBAMANATION of an economy there is no way in hell I would ever give this one up. I have gone from
30 bucks an hour to this... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)

Because of all that has been done to bring the amp up to spec, I am asking top dollar for it. I realize
this is not the forum way, and I do appologize for that, but felt I would give you guys first shot at
this one anyway. I am asking 2250.00 shipped or 1300.00 + a Stereo Grand 300x2 as trade.

I want to be clear on this that this amp has an ORIGINAL CASE and not the refurbished one. The case came from my 5x200 to which the new faceplate/joule meter was added!!! Also, I have located an ORIGINAL CRYSTAL BASE for it and will include that as well. This is a beauty.

Thanks guys!!!

OMG! I am so sorry nooshinjohn! Yes, I have watched your restore on this amp, and whoever ends up with it will be very pleased. It's to much for me, but hopefully someone on our great board takes it off your hands. I feel your pain!
Good luck in your sell.

Re: Sunfire Stereo Signature 600x2

Sorry man, the price is a little too high for me. I sold one last year in mint condition for under $1500.
I'd like it, but will have to pass.

I wish you luck though. =D>

Re: Sunfire Stereo Signature 600x2

Thanks to all for their support and interest...

Thankfully, I have found an alternative solution to parting with
the amp, so thankfully it will stay where it belongs. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ :D 8)
