    Acoustic Image Focus SA Series II power amp (600w model)
    Factory specs:
    I am the original owner, purchased from Gollihur Music roughly 10-15 years ago. Serial number 11. It's been used on many gigs, but well cared for. Minor cosmetic scuffs and scratches. This is a warm and organic sounding power amp.

    Yeah I think there were only a few dozen of these ever made. Not sure why; it's a great design. Selling only because I have way too many amps! :)

    I think Rick told me once, that they made around 50 of them and discontinued the SA because they didn't sell. The
    nice thing about the SA is that Rick can still service them, so if you have an issue, which is very rare, they
    can be rebuilt

    I thought the SA, like the AI Focus of that era, did a 2 ohm load (@ 1000W), no?

    Price drop and very open to trades! Quilter BB800 heads, EA "Whizzy" cabs, nice compressors... what you got?

    I've only ever used this for 4 and 8 ohm loads. I am advertising it as a 600w, 4 ohm power amp as per the owner's manual.

    I was an Acoustic Image fanboy for two decades. I'm downsizing the collection, keeping only my favorite (Contra combo). Now I'm a Quilter fanboy! I will trade this straight up for a Quilter Bass Block BB800.

    I would also consider an AI Upshot + cash, because, yeah, I'm still a little bit of an AI fanboy. ;)

    Very tempting but no thank you. Just too many knobs for my taste---I like a simple interface!
