I know Robert, I'm trying to make it as enticing as possible.

I plan to upgrade to the Helix B-Series.

I've always loved the "techie" look of Helix amps......this is a deal, if I had a need for a 5 channel, I'd be all over this!

That is wierd then. There is a Tn_Audiophile with a high bid on another Helix HXA500 on eBay. I guess it is just a coincidence then... :confused:

I like the Helix amps...

I was planning on using two of these amplifiers, one for the right side and one for the left side, in a vertically bi-amped set-up to maximize the stereo seperation. I have the high bid on the e-bay amplifier however I have not reached the reserve amount. During all this, an opportunity to buy some Helix B-Series amplifiers has came about and I would like to go that way, they have a Class A input section.

I have owned about 4 of these HXA500 amplifiers - they are great amplifiers ! If this amplifier does not sell you better believe I'll keep it and use it. I'm only considering selling it to get other Helix amps...

A class A input stage? That's something I haven't seen advertised before. Aren't they all technically class A? Except for the really exotic input stages that I've just seen in the audio literature but never in a real car audio amplifier. I mean, we are talking solid state here, right?

Anyway, sounds to me like it's just marketing gimickry.

[Not that Helix makes bad amps!]

This is an excellent amplifier, I would highly recommend someone picking it up. I have one right now for my fiances car. TN_Audiophile is a great seller, I have seen the amp in person, excellent product. You cannot beat this price.

Thanks for giving the refund back so quickly. Too bad the sub channel went out before sending (glad you tested), really bummed. Oh well, I'll keep searching.

Are you saying that the sub channel on this amp doesn't work?

To the OP:

If thats the case (I dont need a sub amp) how much would you be willing to let it go for?
