    If it is in good order, you could certainly do worse.

    I have Arcam Alpha 8 amp and Alpha 7 CD player and they have provided me with excellent sound quality and service for many years. You'll find that most people dedicated enough to buy decent kit (which the above most definitely is btw), look after their equipment. My equipments is well over 5 years old but still in immaculate condition. If you've seen it and it's in good condition (and working) then go for it.
