    ADA PTM-1260

    I have decided to sell my ADA amplifier as its not getting used at the moment. This is a very flexible amp and can easily drive a high end home theatre. Each pair of channels can be bridged for higher output. It sounds great unbridged but the sound is on another level once bridged. Much better sounding than the PTM-8150/6150. Its in generally good condition. Faceplate, back and sides are in great condition. The top cover has some scratches and marks. One of the channels has low volume but the other 11 are working perfectly. I have fitted a new fan as the other one was too loud. Also fitted a dust cover. I don't have the original packaging. Check out the user review below. Pretty much sums up how amazing this amp is.

    Hi

    Can you confirm this is 240V? I am sure it will be but need to check.

    The faulty channel - has any repair been attempted? - just a bit worried on that one! Will have a look to see who the UK agents are and possible repair cost.

    Look at the pictures - there's a voltage selector switch.

    Thanks - now I have looked at them on my PC the switches are obvious - on my phone they were not!

    In terms of repair - has any attempt been made to fix it?

    No repair has been attempted. Never really bothered me much to be honest as I never had use for 12 channels anyway. It has universal voltage.

    I know people are probably put off by the faulty channel but everything else works perfectly and sounds amazing. I doubt there is many setups that this won't drive to insane levels with perfect control. Will drop price to £595 which is a bargain considering the sound quality. Not being used at all now which is a waste. Only other amps I know of with this many channels is the Yamaha mx a5000. This one will blow that out of the water. No contest really. This thing is a beast when bridged. Even unbridged would sound better than the Yamaha which I have also owned.

    Sorry I don't know who repairs them here. The other 11 channels are working flawlessly though and I have fitted a new low noise fan. You could make a powerful 5 channel amp out of this with a channel to spare.

    Thanks for the offer but would rather hold on to it than let it go that cheap. The faulty channel doesn't bother me.
