    assuming they are in okay condition, buy for $400?

    I need to know asap to accept or refuse the deal. I am not in the market for another amp, but is that too good to pass up?

    Thanks!

    I didn't buy it.

    The amp sounded good, but after a constant droning EEEEE test, i began to detect a wavering of the volume. This amp, seems to intermittently dip. I wonder if the power amp is failing or something? Any idears on that?

    The 410 probably had at least one blown speaker. it sounded like a flutter when I hit certain notes.

    We discussed these problems and he suggested that we could take it to a service center, find out how serious it is, then discuss the price. I said I would think about it.

    It's too bad, it has cool features.
