[QUOTE=crossg;2113277]Sweet set up Dan. That should flicker a few candle flames. Don’t suppose they have any more Sunfire 5200 amps where you found yours? Found a great deal on some Polk LSi’s and seeing as they are 4 ohm I need some serious power to really make them sing properly.[/QUOTE]
Legitimate refurbs are hard to find, and there are plenty of unauthorized sellers around. Sunfire has a list of unauthorized and authorized sellers on their website. Authorized sellers tend to be B&M stores.THESE FOLKS had a couple B-stock refurbs and I snatched one. They also sell authorized clearance A-stock. Prices for A-stock clearance range from $1300-$1500 on the 5200. Look for the earlier model too, the “Cinema Grand” 5200, they turn up on eBay pretty regular. There’s several CinemaGrand models on eBay right now. Anyway, contact HelwickAudio directly, cause they don’t list everything on eBay.
And don’t forget you can also get 3 old Carver amps off eBay and have 6 channels. The TFM-25, TFM-35, M 500 and M500t are common and often under $300. All are outstanding amps, and run cool. Some of them might be older than you are.
