Hitachi HMA-8500 MKII RARE RAREFor Your consideration a great example of the rare Hitachi HMA-8500 MKII Power Amp. 100% operational and is in exceptional condition both inside and out. Minor nicks to the case and some small spots of white paint to the metal case. Front look brand new no scratches to the acrylic meter cover. The four green power meter lights have just been replaced with new original value lights. 100watts per channel. I am not sure but I think it's Class-A operation.... and I also understand via Internet research that this amp is bridgeable to a mono amplifier. This amp is very heavy close to 45lbs. Very well made with hi-quality Hitachi electronic parts. Hitachi made most of the OEM transistors and other electronic parts during this time so Hitachi knows how to make some to the best parts available. The music this amp makes is incredible! It's just too powerful for my one bedroom apartment otherwise I would keep it myself.. Probably one of the best sounding amps I have ever owned ( I have had up to 3K amps in my system). The new owner will not be disappointed with this fine amplifier! PLEASE READ THIS: Don't ask shipping to USA ONLY! Buyer to pay “actual” shipping cost from 90066 via FedEx only. This will be determined at the end of the auction…I will send an invoice with the calculated shipping once auction is complete. In addition t will be a $20 packing fee. I purchase new packing material and do not reuse found boxes. I pack very very well double box with the utmost care… It’s cheaper to spend extra on packing then file for a claim…Will be double boxed. Local pick-up with no packing fee is welcome. Thanks, Kevin!
