Selling my McCormack DNA-1 Deluxe amp. 200 amazing watts a channel.
Cosmetically a 9/10 only due to age. Powerhouse amp! A "bruiser with velvet gloves..."
$2400 retail when new. Will ship in original carton, spec sheet and manual.
No scratches outside that I can find. It never left my rack after all. Only selling because I am moving accross the country and am renting a small place for a couple years and I will buy a smaller integrated. I will consider trades too for nice tube integrated! Also selling my Audio research SP-8 MK ll pre amp. See my other listing.
I can take more detailed photos if you like. Respect my time and only request if you are indeed serious. I will respect your time and NOT sell you any junk. This amp is near flawless or I will refund your $ including shipping.
Amp has the Cardas RCA in's. Two pairs of speaker out's for bi-wiring. One set of nice Cardas binding posts and one set of screw type spade lugs. Van den Hul output wiring, and Caddock and Vishay resistors.
"The DNA-1 Deluxe is an extraordinary amplifier for its price. The Deluxe had a natural, musical, and easygoing sound that belied its affordable price. In particular, the Deluxe didn't have the typical mid-priced solid-state sound of a metallic treble, hard midrange textures, and limited soundstage depth. Instead, the Deluxe was smooth, liquid, transparent, and spacious. I also greatly enjoyed the Deluxe's tight, articulate, and tuneful bass. Finally, the Deluxe had excellent dynamic capabilities and a strong rhythmic drive.
The icing on the cake was the Deluxe's beautiful build quality and layout. The internal wiring and construction are meticulous, inspiring a feeling of quality and pride in craftsmanship.
While not in the same league as the $12,000/pair Audio Research VT150 tubed monoblock, the $2355 McCormack DNA-1 Deluxe is hard to criticize for its price. In fact, the DNA-1 Deluxe is one of the great bargains in high-end audio".—Robert Harley

Read my feedback and trust it! Will ship anywhere in the lower 48 for only $45. NO INTERNATIONAL! Item too heavy, and I don't wanna deal with it!
Thanks and please email with any questions!
