    I'll probably end up buying a new one, but I'm wondering what these guys go for used in excellent cond? :eyebrow:

    Thanks, Steve

    probably not much less than a new one for $600. I've looked around. You are better off picking up one from www.rmcaudio.com or bringing the quote to a local GC and have them match the price. This is what I did to get mine. For an extra $100 or so you get the full warranty and a bit more piece of mind from having a brand new unit...

    the 700 is the same amp but not as powerful as the 1001. It still packs a punch for most situations though. I just went with the 1001 because you can never have too much headroom.

    Dalley...are you saying that a new 1001RB MkII could be had for $600? I e-mailed RMC Audio for a quote. Thanks, Steve

    yes sir ... $600 shipped to your door

    as a dealer, they are probably only making $100 per unit at that price but they sell a lot of them. I found RMC (Rik's) through this forum as well...........
