    Default Hafler amp...comments ?

    Like the title says, someone I actually KNOW is selling their Hafler 500 power amp, says I can have it for $200, apparantly it's in perfect condition and has never given him any issues...could be a nice power bump for the A7s...opinions requested from those who know.

    I run a stock DH-500 with some SDA 2Bs and a stock DH-200 with some RTA-12Bs. Very good amps that can be upgraded if you want to spend the coin. Mine sound great to me stock.

    "Power Rating: Less than 0.025% total harmonic distortion at any power level up to 255 watts continuous average power per channel into 8 ohms at any frequency between 20 Hz and 20 kHz with both channels driven. Power Consumption: 240 VA quiescent; 1200 VA @ rated power into 8 ohms, 2 channels."

    I've used a QSC-GX7 & Yamaha P7000s with my RTiA9s & have been pleased with what ~ 700 wrms provides.

    A friend gave me one for free. It was not working at the time. I put $100 in and its working great. His dad bought it new in the 80's. I enjoy the amp a lot. I plan on using it when I get a decent preamp home theatre system started. They run my SDA's fine.

    Hey nbrowser if you never picked up that Amp I would love to have it. PM me and maybe we can work something out.

    I'm in Alberta but we have a branch office in the lower mainland so shipping wouldn't cost me anything.

    Cheers

    A nice amp with lots of power for the price, but it will need a recap for best performance due to the age, and is not an authority on clarity.
