Re: Wanted: Sunfire 300 Power Amp

Thanks!

You are right, the 5 channels will certainly work, just more expensive I suspect. Open to that configuration or the later Series II 2 channel versions, thanks guys.

A friend of mine runs a pair of AL-IIIs bi-amped with a 200x5 and it sounds fantastic and goes ridiculously loud, can't really say you would need more then that.

Honestly for that price I would spend the extra 75 bucks to get it from Bob's shop himself, so you know they had gone over it:

If true I retract my statement, and would purchase that listing.

Re: Wanted: Sunfire 300 Power Amp

Pleased to report some acquisitions - Sunfire 300x2 amp & Classic Vacuum Tube preamp (with volume remote, but no phono stage). Includes the glass bases, remote, and XLR cables. Bonus - also bought his Carver M4.0t and he threw in a Monster Power center.

Thanks all for your assistance and suggestions in helping me decide. Looking forward to getting this gear home and biwiring my ALiiis for maximum effect!

I'll report my findings and impressions.
