I don't need to rehash my tale of woe, since I'm sure most here are familiar with it. The end of the story is that I have in my closet three very nice amplifiers (Adcom GFA-5503, Parasound HCA-2003 and HCA-1206) that have issues... and with no one nearby who can actually repair them, they're just sitting there taunting me. I'm not silly enough to think I'll ever recoup the $1,300 or so that I blew trying to buy used amps, but... what now? I'm pretty happy with the Emotiva XPA-3 I ultimately ended up with, so I don't know that I want to invest more money into shipping these things off to be fixed... but what do I do?
Any suggestions? Is there any place that buys 'em for parts or something? 'Cause I'd hate to think the end of their journey is gonna' be in a landfill somewhere, but I really don't know that I want them living in my closet forever, whispering to me about how good they would have sounded had they actually worked right.
