    Dear all - I'm offering up my amazing Denon POA-A1HD for sale, this is a beast weighing close to 70Kg and sounds stunning. I added this to my AVC-A1XV not expecting a huge difference but boy was I in for a treat - the power amp bridged into my Monitor Audio Platinums just took the sound to a whole new galaxy. Dynamics, soundstage and grunt went through sonic puberty! I can see why this amp is often used to demo high end speakers like the B&W 800/802.

    Denon AVP/POA-A1HD: The £10,000 home cinema system | CNET UK

    I have the box and would prefer collection but I could get it sent on a pallet for around £60-80.

    I'm looking for £3K or a very close offer.

    10 bridgable channels (like 10 mono blocks in one box) of high fidelity power. Breathe a whole new lease of life into your existing receiver/processor.

    Rarely for sale!

    I've a friend who's going to be selling his AB amps so thought I'd give them a go. If I had the space I'd keep this - looks really cool with the big power metres lit up too. Would be a GREAT partner to your AVP (although I bet your Lexicon amps are grand as they are!)

    Ah yes the AB amps. I think I know the one you are referring to lol

    I am interested but feel it only fair to mention that the last one sold on here for around £2000

    Oh and BTW I cover up ALL LIGHTS in the AV room. I feel ANY extraneous light reduces the impact.

    I can attest to the absolute amazing sound quality this amps delivers. When I moved from my bel canto ref 1000m mono blocks to this it was like I had changed my speakers. So much more bass and so tight and punchy. Really an amazing amp. And even at full retail of £7000 it works out at £700 a channel which is a bargain.

    Such a luscious, full bodied sound.

    And even better is you can turn off the vu meters with a little button on the right of the amp. I found I would just be mesmerised by them needles flicking back and forth. Lol.

    Hi - as Nick said, you can have the vu metres off. I can only see one previous sale ad which seemed to feature a guy with a cosmetically damaged POA going through a divorce and keen to sell up as well as an AVP which you seem to have shared a dispute over and returned to him.

    I have a mint POA and am not going to be dropping my trousers because of one previous seller. I had the option of 3 ex demo units all with various marks and all for more than 3k.

    Was the other one damaged? Sorry I don't know that. The seller as you may be aware is now looking at far more expensive gear on here. Yes his AVP had no sound

    Hi, yes it had marks to the faceplate to the extent that he'd acquired (but not had fitted - no idea how invasive that could be) a new faceplate. I don't know anything in particular about the item or seller - it's just written in the ad. Yes sorry to read of your disappointment, must've been a real shame.

    For the avoidance of doubt, my POA1HD had a few minor marks on the front panel when i bought it second hand and being very fussy about the condition of my equipment, I decided to buy a new faceplate, which I never fitted incidentally. The AVP is now back in my system working perfectly. Good luck with the sale, but don't give it away.

    I'm interested in your amp. Is it still available? Silver or black? You have a photo?
    If so email me directly. Cheers
