When I found my Sda Srs speakers on Craigslist the guy also had a adcom pre and a 555 II. At the time I was unsure about them and didn't want to but them on the spot.
One of the fuses c blown so I couldn't power up the amp. He let me take both of them home and listen for two or so months.
Well the time has come to pay or give them back. He wants $300 for the preamp and the amp. My hang up is that both are in not so nice shape. Maybe a 4 or 5 out of 10.
I don't really care for the preamp but the amp seems to drive the speakers okay. I've been searching the forum for a little while looking for the right amp. Seems like there is a better adcom, parasound or carver mentioned a few times. Should I save my $ till I can get one of those or pay the 300 for this 555ii and pre?
I would want to get my money back out of this amp and move on to a better but with the cosmetic issues not sure if I could. Thanks for any thoughts and opinions.
