I bought it pre-owed (aka used), a dealer got it on trade in and was hoping to break even, the dealer had it on ebay, and had sent me his phone number to ask my questions, long story short.. a sure thing and no ebay fees= a sold amp, this was the dealer that originally sold the amp in december 05, the original owner was one of those guys who as a 50-100k$ a year budget on audio stuff. So, i paid 4,050$ including palletized shipping.. And, this amp will drive pretty much anything, and should last 25+ years.. It also has the Exact same gain as my current amps, so it will play nicely with the others.

Actually, it's funny you bring that up.. My neighbor to the East has a HT, i have been grillin in the back yard at 9-10pm before, and could hear explosions from his HT, so he may be jealous if you did that... smile

Yes I did, I had two Outlaw mono's and I bought two more and they threw in a fifth for free. So my whole front soundstage will be powered by the same amplification. grin

I also bought some really nice speaker cables, but you guys don't want to hear about them. wink

Pic's or it didn't happen....


I have to buy another pair of speaker cable's... I am going to go the DIY route though... AV-outlet cables.

the 10-2 cables

with the red and black cover.

I need to get spade connectors though, as the banana plug connectors that i currently have aren't that great...

i am thinking of switching to the silver plated spade connectors...
http://www.av-outlet.com/en-us/dept_429.html

I assembled the speaker cables myself, it was a nice little project...

I will take some photos when i get everything put together.

Dak,
I have never had good luck with spade connectors. The very best connectors I have ever used were Neutrik banana plugs. The only problem is they don't fit the pioneer so I can only use them on the speakers. They fit incredibly good.
