I pretty much gave them to a friend of mine. I have a friend that we grew up on the same street together and he always drooled over the Nakamichi amps when I bought them new in the 80's. I ended up giving them to him for some work that was needed on my wife's Chevy Tahoe. He ended up with all 6 PA300II amps. He is running 4 of them along with a PA302 for his tweeters. I have second thoughts on hooking him up with them like I did but its ok I suppose. He isn't flushed with money and I was soft hearted to help him get a system into his truck.
He still has some of that to work off lol.

My Nakamichi system was a work of art, it really was. There are pictures under my profile on that install. I had a thermostat controlled fan setup even to keep those amps from overheating. It worked like a champ and even that looked good back there.

Check it out I'm sure you will like the wall of black amps. They sounded great too, only thing that was light was the bass. But it was well proportioned to be honest, just not overwhelming on bass. I later installed some JL 8W1V-3 woofers and they did very well. I think that was the # lol he has those too.
I do miss that system and will always be a Nak fan.

Its still in my original pictures under McIntosh build in progress or whatever I called it. They are older uploads from 2012 or 2013. I wrecked that truck unfortunately, fell asleep coming home late one night and put it through a guard rail and then a 18" pillar on I-5.

Was going to put same system back in but a buddy convinced me to try some newer different amps. So it was the end of 35 years running Nak gear. Was time for a change I will admit.

Look under my name and the folder has all the old Nakamichi pictures. It was a beautiful install. Had JL ZR-650-CSI components at the end and JL 8W1v3-4 subs for the 75 watt amps. They all did really well considering full out power was probably around 90 watts a channel. Ran 12 active channels in the truck with two Nak EC302 electronic crossovers splitting it up. I could turn that stereo up all the way and it was clear as a bell.
Those amps were not big on power but they were super clean power. I still have not seen specs that beat it.
5-50,000 Hz
S/N Better than 115dB
75 Watts @ 0.003THD
85 dB stereo separation
Damping of 1,000 ((4 ohms 1kHz)

Yea I looked it up lol
Were basically a ADS design plate amp that Nakamichi improved on. I love those things, still have my TD800 cassette player that I bought in 1984. Still works had a new belt put on it a few years ago.

That amp is in Great Shape. I've seen that before but most are pretty beat up.
Soundstream put out some nice stuff. Funny thing is I just recently found out that their factory was only 30 miles from where I live.
Shame how almost all the car audio outfits are all gone. At least not making anything here in the states.
Hell even Japan is pretty much out of it too.

The seller is full of shit on the rarity aspect, they made way more than 100 of these. Still a really great old school amp for a collector. For SQ the best RF stuff came out a year or so later when RF bought out Hafler and started including their TransNova Circuitry in all the Punch DSM amps. I still think those early DSMs are some of the best sounding amps ever produced.

Jimmy (the seller) is absolutely one of the most strait up and honest sellers in our community, I think everyone here would agree. He also said the words "I think" with his comment

As for the Hafler acquisition agree 100%

You have to look closely at the silk screening.

There are two variations of this amp. "Terminator Edition" screening is different than the much more common "Handcrafted in USA" screening.

There are only 100 of the "Terminator Edition" amps. They are well documented in the RF community. Jimmy has it right.

EXACTLY! Wayne Harris helped to develop this model and owned the first 6 of approximately 90-100 made. It is named after his legendary Terminator Hearse. I would love to have any of the Power 1000 or 1000C but a Terminator is rare, rare, rare.

I do remember the hearse in question. It made the rounds in many of the car audio mags back in the day. IIRC one build had a front firing 30 inch pro-audio woofer. It was nuts!

Regardless though, I still don't see $2000 in value but then I don't really "collect amps" per se. My "collection" is way too junky looking for that...

Some people dont see the value in various things....and some people do. I mean, master pieces get to be masterpieces because of human appreciation, not because someone looked at it and said...well hell its a canvas smeared with paint. So he may not get $2,000, but one thing is for sure, he is absolutely correct in that it is uber rare and it is, by the photos, in crazy good condition. These days I would be more afraid of a fake than anything, so I would have to figure out how to certify or verify its authenticity not just condition. On the other hand, people pay thousands of dollars for new amps all the time, so $2,000 does not seem all that bad, if collecting amps are your thing.

Soccorguru607 is no dummy, I picked up on that pretty quickly.

I'm sure he knows exactly what hes talking about as far as the rareness of the amplifier.
Me I don't care because those never blew my skirt up..

But surely someone will drool all over themselves.
