    Default Parasound HCA-3500

    For those who might be interested, I was perusing ebay for parasound stuff and came across a very clean HCA3500 (the 350wpc 160amp) beast of a 2ch amp! Just letting y'all know. I have no affiliation with the seller, just letting people know.

    If only I had the $$$ myself.......

    I'd post a link but not sure I can do that or not.

    Wow. That is quite the clean example of this fabulous amp! I own its little bro, the 2200ii, which is no slouch, but I'd love to hear this girl sing!

    I bet she goes for $1170, +/- $50.

    Someone should get this. :)

    Having had the HCA line first and now a halo, the difference in SQ is quite noticeable and worth the extra coin.

    That thing looks like a beast! Doesn't it require a 20 amp electrical circuit?

    Don't think so however it can pull 1200w so it'd probably be better to have one for sure!

    I don't think this one needs 20amp. The HK Citation 7.1 requires 2500w and the manual says nothing about it.

    Thats a huge load on a 15amp socket. Aren't regular plugs only 2000w? May be wrong.

    For those of you that missed this one on ebay, I've just posted an even better deal, as my HCA-3500 comes with upgraded power cables and has had the resistor upgrade performed:

    Hmmmm....it does say 2500 watts maximum, so running it on a 15 amp line is choking the crap out of it. A regular 15 amp line can supply 1800 watts maximum, a 20 amp line can supply 2400 watts maximum. NEC code states the max draw has to be 20% less than the rated maximum wattage, so you really need a 30 amp line like I have for my amp.

    Spot on....I have 4 ea. Parasound HCA 1500a and a HCA 3500 along with 4 ea tube amps. I have installed 4 dedicated 20 amp circuits for my system. I really noticed it in my bass system's performance. These High current Amps need the current.
