Chrome Helix (Brax) HXA 500 MKII, new clear plexiglass.

Excellent condition, with a couple minor flaws: The heatsink looks like it was bumped on one corner which slightly rounded the corner, see last pic. Also there is a plastic corner broken off between 2 of the terminals on the terminal strip where the subwoofer connects (see 2nd to last pic). The terminals are still isolated from each other fine, I just wanted to mention the slight damage so that I'm not hiding anything like the d-bag who sold this to me. :)

I want $400 shipped USPS Priority Mail for this, I'll include insurance and PayPal's fee if you use PayPal.

Thanks!

So beautiful.

Did you have a chance to audition it? If so, what impressions did it leave on you?
No, unfortunately all I was able to do was power it up briefly on my workbench to double check that it does in fact work properly.

I'm a little afraid that I'd convince myself to keep it if I installed it in the car, any review I've seen on this amp has been extremely favorable.

It's pretty compact, the dimensions are 17" x 7.9" x 1.24"

The 4 main channels seem to be bridgeable to 2 channels, to make a 3-channel amp:
32 Bridge selector
To run the satellite channels A+B and C+D in bridged
mode, the control 32 must be setted at position B and
control 9 at position 2. The signal inputs 8+7 and level
controls 10+13 have to be used as input. If the variable
modules HCC 3 - HCC 6 are inserted and the amplifier
is running in bridged mode the controls (HP+LP) which
turn to the output transistors, are in operation.
From page 10 of the manual (English part starts on page 7):

I've gotten more than one person saying "I'm interested", but no commitments or payment yet. As of now the amp is still available.

Well it didn't reach my reserve on eBay either ($385), am I priced way out of line on this or is everyone else broke right now too? The only pricing I can find lists this amp at $920 new.

Still available, I'll lower it to $350 shipped just because I'm in a little bit of a bind right now.

Thanks! :)

Does that only have two pairs of inputs? Or is that a subwoofer input at the speaker terminal side?

The sub input is on the opposite side from the other 4 RCAs. The amp can be used with 5, 4, 3, or 2 channels of input, and the sub input can also be configured to act as a sub output instaed.
