    I bought this about 6 months ago from Carvin.
    It's been racked up ever since.
    I don't think there is a scratch on it and it is in perfect working condition.
    Weighs 28 pounds. Crystal clear, clean power.

    I'm selling it because I recently scored a higher power QSC amp.

    Ships in the original box.

    900 watts into 4 ohms (bridged mono)
    600 watts into 8 ohms (bridged mono)
    450 watts into 2 ohms (stereo)
    300 watts into 4 ohms (stereo)
    180 watts into 8 ohms (stereo)

    You can check Carvin's website if you need more info.

    $250.00 Shipped (PayPal)

    A higher slew rated amp will amplify a signal with greater purity. That's why we use the best output devices possible, making the HD a great sounding amp. It’s the HD transparent sound quality that is appreciated by the audience - even when pushed hard. There's no more hard edgy tone because every HD delivers crystal clear audio at the highest levels.

    The Carvin HD900's radiator type heat sinks offer greater cooling – the key to smooth running, reliable power amplification. High ratio 6063-T5 aluminum heat sinks remove heat faster than comparable amps. A multi-speed "boxer" fan quietly cools as the air is rapidly moving up to 80 CFM. Designed for continuous operation, overheating is not a problem, especially when operating at 2 ohms where other amps simply quit.

    The HD900's lighter weight design with only 28 lbs as compared with 40 lbs for a similar amp will be appreciated when moving multiple racks. The 10-inch depth for the HD models allow for shallower racks to be used.

    The Professional Accessory Group features front controls that are recessed with LED status indicators that won't get bumped or moved. A rear "Ground Lift" switch eliminates ground loops. A "Parallel Input" switch eliminates the "Y" adapter typically used for paralleling channels. The mono "Bridge" switch delivers the full power resource of the amp (both channels) into one output. Connectors include professional XLR balanced and ¼-inch balanced inputs. Two types of output connectors feature binding post and ¼-inch phone jacks. The soft-start circuits gently turn the DCM on so when you plug into the house AC, the breakers won’t trip.

    The HD900 features a heavy-duty steel chassis, which is galvanized to prevent rust. The printed circuit cards are double-sided FR4 military-grade fire retardant cards with plated through holes so solder flows on the top, bottom, and through every component, keeping parts from shaking loose. The "Modular Design" makes it easy to unplug and swap. Even the power supply can be swapped in a few minutes. Everything is connected with heavy-duty AMP™ and MOLEX™ connectors.
