Proceed Amp 5: Repair or Replace???
by blutown - 4/3/11 10:53 AM
I have an Amp 5 that has stopped working. I contacted an authorized repair place (the Service Bench in MA) and they wanted $800 for service and $250 for parts. This is in addition to shipping (it weighs 120 lb.). This was a $5000 unit new.
Even at its age, it is still one of the best performing multi-channel amps around and I want to keep it but given the high cost of repair, I'm having second thoughts. Anyone faced this situation? Any advice? How much would a used Amp 5 or comparable cost? How much could I sell this non-working but repairable unit for? Where's the best place to shop for and sell audiophile equipment? Cheers!
