I bought a used Parasound HCA 1200 power amp a few months ago for a good price (just a little under $300 total with shipping)and like it a lot. However, yesterday I was offered a Parasound HCA 1500A amp, in mint condition, for an equally good price ($350 + $75 shipping). While I do like the Parasound HCA 1200, I am thinking that the HCA 1500A, being a newer model, would be an upgrade. Is that true? I was thinking of purchasing the HCA 1500A and then selling off my HCA 1200 to help cover the cost of the HCA 1500A. Would this be worth it? How much of an upgrade would the
HCA 1500A be over the HCA 1200? Does this make any sense to do? Or is it just crazy thinking on my part? I will be using the amp exclusively in a 2 channel system with a pair of Polk SDA 2B TL speakers, although I would like to get into home theater at some point in the next few years (but not at present) and would like to keep that option open as well.
I'd appreciate any feedback and suggestions.
