    I need to thin the herd a bit more, and I'm putting up for sale my Trace Elliot AH1200SM. I sold this unit a few years back, but it was damaged in shipping, so I took it back (reimbursed buyer in full, of course), and sent it down to Shane Ratdke at British Audio Service for a complete overhaul. Cosmetically, it is less than pristine (though not gawd awful), but functionally, it's perfect. It is a heavy unit, I will charge actual UPS shipping rates (which I get at a decent discount, due to the volume of work I do with UPS - actual price will be calculated once I know where it's going and I have it packaged up).

    These heads are incredibly powerful, with two 600-watt amps on tap (full power into 2 ohms per side).

    I am asking $550, plus actual shipping costs. Here is a picture of the unit:

    "These heads are incredibly powerful, with two 600-watt amps on tap (full power into 2 ohms per side)."

    Tom, what do you suppose the logic behind that was? Were there technical limits which kept them from building a single 1200 watt amp? Or do you suppose it was to build in some redundancy?

    Not sure. It may have been for guys who want to drive a wall of cabs (two 4-ohm cabs per side).

    Monster amp.
    I had the similar RAH1000 for a while. Sounded great with lots of power.

    All reasonable offers will be entertained. :cool:
     
  19. Been wanting one of these since I bought my GP7 pre-amp in the early 90's. I keep watching this post hoping someone will buy it, just to keep temptation away (it doesn't help that I may be within driving distance...). And then last night at a rehearsal played through someone's GP7 with the 350 amp. This is killing me.
    Someone needs to buy this before I breakdown and buy something I really want but don't need!
