(Pictures are of the actual item you'll receive.)
For your consideration, here's a somewhat rare Harman Kardon PA2400 power amplifier. (This is the exact same model as the "Signature Series" edition but was manufactured before the company decided to use the "Signature" logo.) The amplifier is rated 170 watts per channel RMS into 8 ohms and has plenty of reserve power for peaks. The amp was manufactured in Japan around 1993 and is one of the better units that the company has ever made. It's also one of the last great amps the company ever made as well, for after 1995, the company altogether quit making hi end stereo equipment and starting focusing entirely on mid-level/cheap home theater stuff.
The controls of this unit include a power button, a sliding lever for auto standby on/off, sliding lever for bridged mono mode on/off, and two switches for 4 or 8 ohm impedance loads. There is one pair of speaker binding posts. The binding posts take bare wire or banana plugs. The banana plugs do not plug into the back of the posts though. The opening for the wire is adjustable and can be set big enough to insert the banana plugs through. The binding posts were not designed for spade lugs. There's also post for grounding and of course the left/right RCA inputs.
The unit at hand here has served me well for a number of years in my second primary system. It was used on an open rack and used to drive a pair of Onix RS750 Signature speakers. I've never encountered any problems or issues with this piece. I now have a smaller quarters with only one living area which means I can only keep my first primary system. It's difficult for me to let this piece go, but when it comes down to it, I guess it's better that somebody else gets good use out of it rather than have it just sit around.
To me, the amp looks like it's very nice cosmetic condiiton. There's some light marks here and there on the chasis, but nothing I find too detracting. I've included several photos with zoom and enlarge options so you can form your own evaluation.
Dimensions are 17.25" wide x 14.25" deep x 6.37" high with a weight of 35 pounds. You'll need a sturdy rack with good sized shelves. All the heat is ventilated through the top and you should allow plenty of open room above for clearance.
With this amp, I am including a replica of the owners manual that I printed from an online source.

Maybe you have some concerns not covered in the listing. Just so you know - questions are strongly encouraged before bidding and all submitted questions will be answered. If you have a question about an item, click on the link that reads, "Ask a question."
If you have an issue with your item, you must send me an explanation of the problem through Ebay's message service within 14 days after the items arrival. I will give you my full cooperation and work with you to try to resolve the problem if possible. During the process I may have a few questions for you and ask that you give me the same cooperation. If the problem can't be resolved to your liking - you may opt to return the item. Here are the guidelines:
Item not as described: If it is clear that the item did not arrive as described and it's obviously different than what's stated in the listing, the seller will cover return shipping costs and the buyer will be refunded for the full purchase amount.
Item arrived damaged: First, if it's obvious the package is damaged (e.g. : crushed, smashed, holes, abnormal rattling inside etc.) do not open it. Take pictures of the package and send me a message for further instructions.
If outer damage to the package isn't obvious and you open the package to find the contents damaged - take pictures of both the contents and the packaging and send me a message for further instructions.
In cases where items arrive damaged, the seller will cover return shipping costs and the buyer will be refunded for the full purchase amount. The seller will handle any insurance claims with the shipping company, however, the buyer's cooperation will be needed for an investigation.
All other reasons: In all other cases, regardless of reason, (e.g. : subjective issues, change of heart, doesn't fit, item arrived as described but malfunctioned on a later date, compatibility issues, missed details mentioned in the description, etc.) the buyer will cover return costs and the buyer will be refunded for the item price only - no original shipping charges.
Condition of returned items: Any items returned must be in the same condition they were received. The items must be exactly the same, have all the accessories or original packaging that were included, and can't have any parts swapped or exchanged. The items can't be returned mishandled or abused. The items should be packaged as well as they were when they were sent and can not be returned damaged. No refunds will be granted for any of these violations and the buyer will be responsible for all return costs. In more extreme cases, an "abuse of return policy" claim could be filed with Ebay.
Unauthorized returns: Any return claims submitted after 14 days of the items arrival will not be granted. If there's a chance I can possibly help you resolve an issue in some other way though, I'll give it a try.
Items returned without a claim filed first will be refused.
